If you’re thinking about choosing Spain to be your vacation spot, then you’re in for a great trip, because you’ve made a great choice. If you’ve never been to Spain, however, you may still be wondering what exactly you can and should do while there.
There are some answers for you, and you’ll be happy to learn that regardless of the types of activities you like to do, you’ll be happy finding a perfect fit for you in Spain.
Islands For Water-Lovers
If you travel to Spain and want to kiss the sun and the blue, go to the Mediterranean and find yourself floating with the Balearic Islands. Each island is known for its own specific source of attraction, be it partying, relaxing, connecting with nature in the mountains, or connecting with the water on the beaches of Formenterra. If you hang out on the Islands you can explore one each day, and have a truly beautiful and versatile time.
If you’re more interested in town life, then travel to Ronda, which is known for being a beautiful little Spanish town. In Ronda you’ll be able to get a piece of Spanish history, and connect with the natives. If you’re not looking for a touristy experience on your vacation, this could be the perfect place to rest your head and feet while tasting Spain.
Golden Triangle of Art
If you’re an art fan, then you won’t want to miss out on three of the most famous top Museums in Spain, which are the Museo del Prado, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. They all contain priceless works of art that treasure the Spanish heritage and history, from Velazquez to Picasso himself, if you like art you will not want to leave Spain without visiting these.
If you would like to take in a truly historical experience then you should travel to Merida, which is full of ancient Roman architecture that you can see up close and personal. If you visit Merida, you’ll see the glory for yourself that’s described in Roman history, and you’ll be glad that you went.
The City of Art & Science
For a more modern (or even futuristic) vacation site with some Spanish flavor, visit the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, which boasts of something completely different than you expect in a Spanish trip. Everything about it is complex and reminds you almost of futuristic television, with some great museums that are as interesting on the outside as they are on the inside, and the largest aquarium in Europe. If you’re looking for something different, that will allow you to take plenty of pictures and feel like you can only see it again where you saw it the first time, then you should definitely visit this city.
Madrid is the city everyone thinks to visit when they go to Spain, and there’s reason for it. You get to drink Sangria, eat tapas, and watch a bullfight! Bullfighting is as much a part of Spanish tradition as Baseball is American, and it’s not for no reason. If you really want to get a taste of Spanish culture, then be sure to book tickets for the next bullfight while you’re in town.
Spain is also known for some of the most classic and beloved wine tours of the world, delivering some of the best tasting wines right to your taste buds, and providing bottles for you to take home on the flight. If you find yourself taking a two-week vacation and you like a little red or white wine after dinner, then you should definitely see what new wine you may enjoy by taking a wine tour in almost any region you land in!
One getaway favorite in a lot of places is Skiing, and you don’t have to miss out on that if you get a little homesick. Go to the Sierra Nevada Mountains and take to the slopes. The really great thing about these mountains is that you can be back on the beach by afternoon, which is something you’ll never be able to do in some other places!
Now you know why Spain is one of the World’s most famous and favorite vacation spots. Why is it your personal vacation spot? Is it because of the exotic wine you never knew existed, or the fact that you can play in the snow in the morning and lay on a warm beach, sun tanning in the afternoon? Or perhaps it’s because you can truly take in a different culture and heritage with the bullfights, and visiting cities like Madrid and towns like Ronda? Whatever your reason may be, don’t miss out on it by ignoring a trip to one of the most glorious places on Earth.
