Rio de Janeiro
You’ll find that the world famous Rio de Janeiro carnival is waiting for you. There are more than 2 million people dancing in the streets in a festival that has been happening for nearly 300 years!
Of course, the weather in Brazil is also warm, allowing you to unwind, enjoy the festivities and even check out the famous Copacabana Beach, or Sugarloaf Mountain and the Christ the Redeemer statue.
Stay a little closer to home and head for sunny Florida. With temperatures in the 70’s, you’re going to be able to enjoy the warmth without feeling too hot to move.
Check out the stunning lagoons and rivers in a kayak, try boating on the Gulf of Mexico, or take a look at the Ringling Museum of Art, dedicated to the circus.
There is also the Sarasota Jungle Gardens where you can see crocodiles, alligators, flamingos, and parrots.
On the southern side of this beautiful island, you’ll find Agrigento. It’s nestled in the countryside, overlooking the ruins of Akragas and is home to an amazing collection of Ancient Greek temples. The best example is the Temple of Concordia which is believed to have been built in 430 B.C. and remains almost in one piece.
You can also use the local beaches, try your hand at some water sports, or check out the shops and vibrant nightlife.
This may not be the first destination that comes to mind when looking to get away in April. But, grab your airline tickets with the military discount and check out the Mardi Gras celebrations. They are a smaller scale version of what New Orleans has to offer but still well worth seeing.
But, while you’re there, it’s essential you check out the Space Centre and learn more about NASA and space travel; you will be enthralled.
This is the third largest city in the country and the birthplace of paella; you’ll have plenty of opportunities to try this traditional dish while you’re visiting.
Valencia has a fantastic and vibrant nightlife, as well as some great shopping and eating venues. The aim is to create larger-than-life figurines from paper-mache or cardboard; they are usually very topical as well as fun.
If you just want to get away and enjoy some stunning white, or black, sand beaches with fantastic weather and deep green forests looming behind the beach; then French Polynesia is the destination for you.
You can see rare black pearls in the Robert Wan Pearl Museum and try diving, snorkelling, surfing, kite surfing, or even just swimming in the warm sea, full of colourful fish.
Whatever your preference, you can grab airline tickets with the military discount that will make your April break much more affordable than you think.
