Anne Taylor Hartzell is the founder, writer and editor of the awesome family travel website, HipTravelMama. I had an opportunity yesterday to interview her by phone about a recent Expedia survey and ask her opinions about spring travel tips and trends, hotel and cruise deals, and planning.

Some of the key points of the survey results are:

** Florida remains a top destination for 2012 and trips to the Florida Keys are up 37% over last year for March and April.

** You don’t have to go to a beach to find great spring deals — New York, DC and Denver are hot, too.

** Consider a Caribbean cruise to save some money, but still enjoy a warm and sunny vacation.

Whatever you do this spring — have fun!

Take a look at the video to hear more of Anne’s excellent advice.

Do you have any spring travel tips?

  1. Great interview, Cathy! I love the idea of taking a springtime road trip, even with high gas prices.

    • Yeah, me too! Anne made a good point about taking shorter driving trips and staying longer in the destination. Pretty good idea, I think.

  2. Now I know why you were asking questions about videos! :)

    I got the email about this survey!
