Planning a last minute trip around the end of March or sometime in April. Want to avoid the most crowded time, what would you recommend?

Thank you

Hi Laura the end of March and beginning of April is one of the most crowded times of the year! But there’s some great weeks in 2013 in later April–see the weeks ranked #7 and #8 in this:
