  • What’s your dream spring break destination? – HeidiS recently posted this over on the Bing Travel Blog:

    The official start of spring is still some days away and winter still has a firm grip on much of the country, so if you’re like us you’re dreaming about where you’d rather be. The Bing Travel team wanted to know where you, our readers, wished you could spend a week in spring. We asked our Facebook fans and Twitter followers to share their dream spring break destinations, and got some incredible responses, which we turned into a new slide show called 10 Dream Spots for Spring Break.

    One reader summed up what was on many of your minds by writing where she wanted to be: “On a beach with beautiful clear blue water and lots of palm trees.” We got votes for Hawaii, Florida, and many beaches in the Caribbean. Some places were new to us – such as Siargao, Philippines – and we’re excited to add those to our travel wish lists. Thanks to everyone who participated, and enjoy the slide show. Here’s hoping it inspires your spring travels.
