Where is Hot in April?

April is often overlooked as a month to go on holiday. But this year April holidays are a great option. With Easter falling early in the month, it is the perfect time for fun family holidays in the sun. Alternatively, if you prefer a more relaxed escape, there’s always later on in the month too – after Easter and before the mad rush of the summer begins.

Personally, I think there’s no better time to be packing your suitcase and heading off to somewhere nice and hot. But that’s just it. Where is hot in April? Surely there aren’t too many options, right? Wrong. Let me share with you just a few of the hot destinations in April to give you some food for thought for your next holiday.


Whether you’re wanting to soak up the sun on the beach, shop ‘til you drop at a huge mall or feel the rush of adrenaline at an action-packed theme park such as Universal Orlando, Florida is an excellent choice for an April getaway.
