You had me at tapas.
Some destinations require just a little getting used to. Spoiler alert: Spain isn’t one of them. From the moment you land, the warm mediterranean sun brings a buzz to the soul, and that’s before delicious Verdejo or Rioja washes down all the lovely tapas. From the beaches of Barcelona to the rolling hills of Madrid, you really can’t go wrong and with flights from $262 round trip, there’s never been a better time to go explore for yourself. It may sound crazy, but you can even do it in a long weekend.
Boston is experiencing every travelers best friend: a price war. It’s not the only city either. Airlines are duking it out to bring passengers to the second most popular tourism country on earth and that has fares reaching new record lows from New York, Miami, San Francisco and Chicago on airlines like Swiss, Iberia, TAP Portugal and British Airways.
The Travel Dates
These awesome bargains are available this spring in March or April and then later again this fall in September, October and November. Either time is perfect to soak up some Spanish sun, and hoard all the wine you can back with you to the USA. Many of the deals allow short stays, which makes long weekend trips totally doable. Our pick: fall.
