Spring has sprung and with it arrived the age old tradition of destinations unknown with the family. While the year has kept us busy assisting clients, some of us were able to sneak away for a few days. The majority of us had our feet in the sand; with visits to Florida and Mexico, South America and the Dominican. Some of us were even able to catch the Twins win at Spring Training in Fort Myers. Yes, that actually can happen. A few lucky souls also spent time on the mountains, enjoy fresh powder in Utah and Colorado.
It should come as no surprise that we have some recommendations. If you’re looking for great restaurants, great beaches, surfing and fun, Emily Leach says she would recommend Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico to anyone. Kristin Latuff recommends Cumberland Island in Georgia. It’s an island with amazing wildlife including wild horses! Book early as the visitor population is controlled to protect the nature.
If you’re in search of warmer climates but more of an adventure, Jill Amundson describes her trip to Peru as “the trip of a lifetime”. Between hiking, exploring, swimming and surfing, Peru is a great mix of history, culture, adventure and just the right amount of relaxation.
If you’d rather hit the slopes, than the beach, Spring Break is an amazing time to visit the Rockies. Todd Urbanski and Laurie Bremer were lucky enough to enjoy 20+ inches of powder in Colorado and Utah respectively. Todd recommends Beaver Creek in Colorado. Two hours from Denver and 6000 feet in elevation, it’s warmer than most mountain city’s and boasts a Costco of its own. What could be better? Laurie spent the week in Alta, right outside of Salt Lake City with her family. Although Alta can’t boast much night life, it has some of the best skiing in the US. If you’re a boarder you’ll have to stick to Snow Bird, as Alta allows no snowboarding.
Thankfully the warmth and sun has followed us back to Minnesota. With the sun comes an ever exciting Real Estate climate. Keep us in mind if you need help buying, selling or you’re just interested in taking a peak.
