March marks the beginning of spring and with that comes temperate weather, vacation opportunities and an awakening of tourism. See which destinations top the list as some of the best to check out this month. 

Cartagena, Colombia

March is one of the best months to visit Cartagena because of the sunny days, clear skies and light breeze. There are fewer crowds in March and plenty of festivals to check out during your stay.

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Water temperature and clarity are the best they get all year in March in this destination. The conditions are perfect for swimming, snorkeling and diving. It’s also hatching season for the famous Galapagos tortoises.

Lake Como, Italy

If you’re craving spring blooms, head to Lake Como to see the camellias, azaleas and rhododendrons bloom in full swing. Some of the most breathtaking gardens are located in this destination, and March is still considered “pre-season,” so it’s a perfect time to catch good rates and avoid crowds.

Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif.

March is one of the best months to visit this southern California gem, not only for the incredible weather, but also for Gourmet Fest, a foodie festival featuring top chefs from around the world. Spend the days visiting tasting rooms and more.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
