Whether you’re interested in sunny beaches, fun city touring, or an active nightlife there are plenty of May travel destinations all within the US.

#1 Miami Beach
There’s never really a bad time to go to Miami Beach, but spring visitors will enjoy lower rates than the peaks seen in winter. If you’re interested in fun beach life, while still being close to a bustling city with a variety of restaurants and bars, then Miami Beach should be on the top of your travel lists.
April in Miami is warm, but not yet as hot or humid as mid-summer. While other beaches will often have limited activities after the sun goes down, Miami is unique in that the city is just a few steps off of the sand. You can spend your days basking in the sun before going out to enjoy Miami’s nightlife.
#2 New York City
If you’re not interested in tanning, but still want a city experience, New York City is definitely a must see. New York is home to possibly the most diverse choice of food from across the world from pizza to fine dining. Aside from food, you can find plenty of educational activities in the city such as theater, Broadway shows, museums, and other cultural enriching outings. Lastly, for those souvenir hunters, New York is home to some of the best designer and trendy shopping outlets in the world. You can spend the day filling your suitcase, enjoying fine restaurants, and enjoy the city nightlife all on the same street.
#3 Las Vegas
The city that never sleeps is a 24/7 adventure, but for those not wanting to deal with sweltering summers in the desert or freezing winter chills, spring is the time to visit. Nothing is more uncomfortable than walking the strip all day under a burning sun. Spring visitors will enjoy mild 70 to 80-degree weather so you can do more than cool off in your hotel room. Shows, food, and of course plenty of gambling is available in Vegas.
#4 San Francisco
The last of our best places to travel in May is another perfect spring destination. And, that would be northern California, specifically San Francisco. Spring in the city is the perfect time to explore downtown and even head out of the city into a more rural atmosphere. Downtown in the Bay Area is full of diverse food from Asian cuisine to Italian pasta. San Francisco is a cultural hub with plenty of activities from museums to shows. For those wanting a break from the city bustle, a short drive over the Golden Gate Bridge will lead adventurers to the giant Redwoods which they can explore for hours.
Whether you’re interested in relaxation, adventure, or just want a break from work travel in May is one of the best times to get out and see a new city.
