Top Places in the USA to Visit in Spring
Chena Hot Springs, Alaska
Want to shake off the tiredness of the chilly season? We got a perfect spot for you; Chena Hot Springs. Lie in the outdoor hot spring and feel your bones soaking in the healing water and calming your entire body inside and out.

Not to be overlooked is the scenic beauty of surrounding glaciers. And of course, a visit to the Aurora Ice Museum is a must.
Another city that goes all up to celebrate the floral beauty but this time it is for the visually sensational trees; Cherry Blossoms. The town celebrates the month-long National Cherry Blossoms Festival in their peak bloom season attracting visitors across the festival to enjoy the diverse, multicultural and art-rich programs comprising parties, parades, and performances. Actually, the festival commemorates the historic event of 1912, when Japan gifted the United States Cherry Blossoms trees as a token of their good relations. And even century after, that very gift cast a spell of dreamland on the Capital with these pinkish-white flowers decorating the sidewalks of Tide Basin and Washington Monument.
This place carries the dramatic beauty of the beach with grace in all seasons, but it’s also one of the best places in the USA to visit in spring. Standing on the bank you will feel sparkling waves touching your feet and bringing starfish and seashells along them.

But the place main attraction is the huge gray whales making their way through the Depoe Bay on their way to North, the Arctic, during the spring. Visitors can easily spot these (more than 20,000) whales on the Bay without even stepping foot in the water. Devils Punch Bowl and Tillamook Head are the popular spots to initiate your whale watching excursion with so many more.
Like the name suggests, this town was founded by the Dutch immigrants and during this season of rebirth and renewal, the whole town celebrates the uniqueness and beauty of their national flower: Tulips.
