10 Best May Vacations
The best thing about the month of May is that the weather is nice almost anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere! With that in mind, here is a list of the 10 best May vacations you can take if your vacation plans have you taking off in spring. Vacation rentals are abundant in each one, so you'll have plenty of options to choose from.
Hermosa Beach ), one of its accoustically-best music venues ( Walt Disney Concert Hall ), and one its best museums ( the Getty Center , where you will also find arguably the best view from a museum in the world). And with one of the planet's most ethnically diverse populations, the diversity and excellence of the cuisine is unmatched. For sports fans, nothing beats a gorgeous afternoon at Dodger Stadium or an evening rubbing shoulders with Jack Nicholson at a Laker game.
Fenway Park . While you're in town, be sure to enjoy some lobster from just up the coast in Maine as well as some of Boston's famous clam chowder.
Hyde Park buzzes with people as everyone wants to be outside. The weather is perfect for walking neighborhoods like Notting Hill , taking a boat ride on the Thames, or visiting the iconic landmarks of one of the world's most historical cities.
Mann's Chinese Theater . If you’re in town long enough, take in a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, a legendary amphitheater. When travelers list their favorite places to visit, Hollywood is always one of the 10 best. May vacations always be this easy to plan!
Continuing the theme of getaways that beat early summer May heat, there is Chicago. Though during winter Chicago is one of the coldest places in the continental US, in springtime it's one of the coolest. Walk along Lake Michigan , or visit the Sears Tower, the tallest building in the United States. Don't leave town without having an Italian beef sandwich and some of Chicago's famous pizza.
Chinatown , walk around Fisherman's Wharf , or take a tour of Alcatraz .
Clearwater and St. Petersburg, and it’s a great place for a baseball fan—in the early spring, before the season starts, the Yankees train there, and by May you can catch a Tampa Bay Rays' home game.
Central Park . Since many kids are still in school in May, New York's renowned museums are less crowded. If you're a sports fan, be sure to visit Yankee Stadium or Madison Square Garden – or both.
