Not Sure When to Book? Check Out These Local Activities at Some of Our Most Popular Vacation Resort Destinations

While all of our destinations are fun no matter what time of the year, it’s great to travel to a place when even the locals are excited for a certain festival or event. Attending a festival or special event is a great way to sample the best of a certain area, whether it’s food, music, or something completely different altogether.

If you’re planning on traveling to certain popular places in the future, you may need to book in May to get the unit you want. Here’s a handy chart telling you the best time to book, and some corresponding events to check out at some of our most popular destinations:
