May | June Tours

Where to Travel in May & June

Spring in Europe is a delight. Seasonal specialties—including zucchini, asparagus, and strawberries—highlight dishes you won’t experience any other time of year. Farmers and vintners work their fields, prepping vines for the season or planting crops. Festivals and blooming flowers add a celebratory atmosphere to medieval towns.

Closer to home, in the American West, destinations like Colorado and Utah turn green with spring rains. Want to try something unique? May and June is the ideal time to visit Japan—after the mad tourist rush of cherry-blossom season and before the sticky heat of mid-summer.
