Hawaii is one of the most popular vacation spots for US residents. Many plan their vacation in advance, expecting a wonderful pastime on the tropical islands. The eruption of the volcano can change the plans of some tourists this year. But there is always the opportunity to go somewhere else to another, no less interesting place. Perhaps you should think about traveling to places you would not go to under other circumstances. For example, to Europe.

Tourists from America rarely spend their holidays at European resorts. Europe is quite far away, and in the US there are many of its resort regions. But we recommend trying something new.

Vacation in Europe

France. The Côte d'Azur of France is a popular resort region for wealthy residents of many European countries for more than 100 years. The most famous resort towns here are Nice, Cannes, Saint-Tropez. The Principality of Monaco is also located on this part of coast.

Spain. The Mediterranean coast of Spain is west of France. Visit the famous Spanish cities, such as Barcelona, ​​Valencia, Malaga. In these cities there are many historical sights. Good beaches are also available on the Mediterranean coast.

Two archipelagoes also belong to the territory of Spain.
Balearic Islands. The island of Ibiza is one of the most popular resort and party areas in Europe.
Canary Islands. The islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria are among the most popular places to spend holidays. The Canary Islands are considered a year-round resort, but in winter it may seem a bit chilly here.

Italy. Italy is a special country. We strongly recommend that all travelers visit here at least once in their life. There are many interesting things for tourists: ancient sights, unique works of art, delicious food.

Cities to visit: Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples and many others.

The Kilauea volcano began to erupt this spring. During March and April this year, the level of lava rose, and lava began to pour over the edge of the crater. After the destruction of dozens of houses, lava from Kilauea volcano has already reached the ocean.

Gases such as sulfur dioxide are also released during the eruption. Gases reduce air quality and cause breathing problems, especially among risk groups such as asthmatics.

The tourism industry still has no losses, the island's airports remain open. But the activity of the volcano can change rapidly.


Regular flights to Europe are performed by many European, American and Asian airlines. It will not be difficult for you to find a suitable flight and buy tickets.

We checked the prices for roundtrip flights to some of the most popular airports in New York.

  • The cheapest ticket to fly from New York to Valencia and back we found at a price of 340 US dollars for September.
  • Ticket for a plane to Nice from New York for September today could be bought at a price of 480 dollars.
  • Tickets to Rome (roundtrip flight) in summer can be bought at a price of $ 600. (Tickets for September and October are much cheaper now.)

You will definitely need a place to stay during your trip. It must be borne in mind that you can always find a good hotel in a popular resort. But if you plan to go on a trip at the peak of the tourist season, then take care of the place to stay better in advance. The best places in the best hotels are booked in advance (especially if there is a popular event at your destination. (For example, the Venice Carnival.)

In Hawaii, there are two seasons: summer and winter. Both seasons are warm, but in the winter months there is much more rainfall. Despite the rains, the high tourist season falls on the winter months (low season in the summer). One of the reasons is that the inhabitants of the northern regions of the United States tend to fly away from the cold weather in Hawaii. The peak tourist season in Hawaii begins in mid-December and lasts until the end of March or mid-April.

As for the European resorts, it is best to go to the Mediterranean coast from June to October. Canary Islands can be a good place to relax all year round. Do not limit yourself, expand the horizons of your experience. (Look for more information on our VISIT-PLUS website.)
