Where to Travel in March

When Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra both sang “It Might as Well be Spring” in the ’60s, they weren’t necessarily talking about the best season of the year to take a vacation. But nearly six decades later, it’s no secret that March is the month when so many destinations around the world emerge from winter and spring back to life. If you’re thinking of getting away, here’s where to travel in March.

Las Vegas

Is it any surprise that Sin City is located in the desert? While most days of the year are hot, spring is known for temperate days and cool nights. Spend days by the pool and nights at the casino — or exploring the nearby Las Vegas Strip. Any other city in the world would be hard pressed to rival the A-list entertainers and big-budget shows, from megastars of the music world to magicians and more. Don’t miss Death Cab for Cutie, with special guest star My Brightest Diamond, on Friday, March 29 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.

Maldives

Searching for a way to amp up a beach getaway? Look no further than the Maldives, a string of atolls in the Indian Ocean. The best part of an island getaway? There’s an atoll for every mood. Choose a villa with direct beach access (from sleep to sand in 60 seconds or less) or an overwater villa with limitless ocean views from your relaxing infinity pool. Looking for more action? Head to The Marina @ CROSSROADS for a full schedule of live music and entertainment. Hungry? Rock and roll with American classics at Hard Rock Cafe. We brought everything you need and want to paradise.

Puerto Vallarta

Don’t miss the end of whale-watching season on Mexico’s west coast. From humpback whales to dolphins, there’s no telling what you can spot breaching (jumping) in these waters. Warmer than California, and with virtually no rain, Nuevo Vallarta — a resort area north of Puerto Vallarta — is known for its golf courses and marina. Less interested in planning activities? Book an all-inclusive vacation and celebrate good times on the long, sandy beach.

Madrid (Coming Soon)

Long-awaited spring temperatures bring locals back outside into Madrid’s beautiful parks. In the Rosaleda del Parque del Oeste, see the Templo de Debod. The ancient Egyptian temple was moved across the world and rebuilt in one of the city’s lush green spaces. After seeing the sights at Plaza Mayor, head to the historic Calle de la Cava Baja for the best tapas in Madrid. Mark your calendars for next spring: Hard Rock Hotel Madrid will be located across from the renowned Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. Here, you can see works of art by Spanish masters Picasso, Salvador Dali, and Joan Miro.

Dublin (Coming Soon)

Like neighboring England across the channel, Ireland is known for its cold, rainy days. Spring temperatures are still cold, but it’s one of the driest, sunniest months of the year. Read: the best month to explore the country’s famous green landscapes. In Dublin, cross the 19th-century Ha’penny Bridge — a symbol of the city — on your way to St. Stephen’s Green. Restored hundreds of years ago by the Guinness family with Victorian gardens and fountains, it’s the most popular park in Dublin today. Coming soon, Hard Rock Hotel Dublin will be located in Temple Bar, the city’s cultural hot spot. Here, you can stay just a stone’s throw from Trinity College, Grafton Street, and the world-famous Guinness Storehouse.
