Travel + Leisure’s Sarah Spagnolo presents three destinations to celebrate spring and the holiday weekend.
New York City: New York City does it up for Easter; there’s the Easter Parade, the Great Faberge Big Egg Hunt display at Rockefeller Center, and the Tribeca Film Festival. Unpack at the W New York Downtown, and you’ll have easy access to it all, plus amazing views of the new One World Trade Center and the city’s glimmering skyline. Price: From $262 a night. Book now: wnewyorkdowntown.com.
Las Vegas: Imagine a Rose Parade float set right in a hotel lobby. That’s what you’ll get when you stay at The Bellagio, this weekend and through May 11. A bonus: The garden is free and open 24-hours a day, so you can fit it in between rounds of roulette, dips in the Mediterranean-inspired pools, massages at the palatial spa, and photo opps at the famous fountains. Price: From $249. Book now: bellagio.com.
Boca Raton, Florida: If you’re headed to Boca this weekend to be with your family, consider the Boca Raton Resort & Club, on more than 300 acres with a private beach. There’s a Mad Hatter’s Silly Spring Party with carnival games, and on Sunday, an egg hunt with over 15,000 eggs filled with toys and candy on the resort’s golf course. Price: From $299. Book now: bocaresort.com.
