2014 - A Year of Historical Significance

Welcome Back

Susan Weinstock
Travel Weekly Hotel Editorial Director

 

It has been a challenging winter around the globe and finally it feels like spring will actually visit this year.  For many, it is now that vacation conversations take a serious turn.  Families start to consider spring vacations and all of us have summer in view.      

There are so many wonderful displays that appear briefly, but beautifully this time of year, each can be planned as a getaway or part of a larger trip.  Stunning cherry blossoms in Washington, DC or Japan, the awakening of nature in parks with incredible wildflowers, waterfalls and wildlife are all wonderful reasons to travel.  And, of course, the mild climate is very attractive.  

In addition to the always welcome warmer weather, 2014 is a year that provides travelers   unusual opportunities to learn, visit and teach history.  June commemorates the 70th anniversary of WW2's D-Day landings on the Normandy Coast.  August marks 100 years since the outbreak of the first World War.  These immensely significant events in our world's history will be acknowledged and can be experienced in many ways.  They provide an excellent reason to meet with your clients to discuss possibilities -- family trips, multi-generational plans, student travel, group tours, trips for history lovers.  Learn what will work for them.
