5 Spring Vibes Adventures We Love
Check out these spring adventures inspired by our NB Community!
When we start to feel the spring energy coming in the sunshine, the rain, and the plants awakening, the inspiration to get outside and find adventure comes easy. We put together this list of 5 Spring Vibes Adventures We Love that'll remind you to plan a trip and enjoy that feeling that comes with new beginnings.
1. Pacific Northwest in Washington State
With almost endless adventures in this part of the country, we recommend heading to Washington to explore Columbia River Gorge, Olympic National Park, or one of the many state parks. You'll see wildflowers blooming and plenty of waterfalls flowing amongst the iconic green that the PNW always has for us.
2. Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
While the Appalachian Mountains typically call people to experience the magic that happens when the fall leaves start to change colors, the springtime holds a special energy that you'll never forget. Waterfalls are at their peak, bear cubs are starting to come out from their dens, and the wildflowers are blooming in every direction. See all the green from the countless tree species and take in those bright mountain views.

3. Big Bear Lake, California
If you're looking for a spring adventure in California, head to Big Bear Lake where you can find something for everyone. Take advantage of all the recent snow by skiing or snowboarding or wait for the snow to melt and get on the hiking or mountain biking trails to see wildflowers and pristine views of the lake. Take a look up at night and see some amazing stars in this dark sky spot in southern California.
4. Mackinac Island, Michigan
For a later spring adventure, check out Mackinac Island in Michigan in April or May. Surrounded by Lake Huron and the Straits of Mackinac, the island can only be accessed by boat or plane. There are many breathtaking views and beautiful landscapes where you can hike or bike. Watch the spring flowers come to life on this little island paradise.
All the love to @chasejancek for taking these shots to inspire a trip to the Upper Peninsula!
5. Grand Tetons National Park, Wyoming
Spring in the Tetons means the flowers are blooming and wildlife is starting to become really active. All of the roads officially open in May, but plan a trip in April if you want to be there with fewer crowds. Keep an eye out for bears and their cubs, migrating elk, and bald eagles learning to fly. Watch the surise bring all the light to those amazing Tetons rising on the horizon.

We love it when you share your adventures with us. So let us know where you go to explore and take in the spring vibes that bring all the inspiration to keep flowing into the beauty that is.
