Travel by: Select dates through spring 2008
It may still be February, but rest assured that spring is in the air — airfare that is. Just have a look at the fantastic rates we've found on spring travel to popular U.S. cities from $49 (one-way), European capitals from $200 (one-way), and Caribbean beaches from $75 (one-way). Plus, explore exotic Bali and Bangkok from $761 (round-trip), or hop aboard new, inexpensive routes bound for L.A. or the Colorado Rockies from $49 (one-way). Rates for most destinations are known to skyrocket and throngs of crowds to pour in once summer rolls around, so beat the seasonal rush and plan that dream vacation in springtime instead.
