where to find 1 week in sun mid March? after Dallas week

Hi We will be in Dallas for about 5 days in mid March for a music event. Having flown from UK we would then like a week in the sun somewhere afterwards. I realise weather wise March is not great, so will need to travel onwards. We like wildlife, nature, coastal scenery, flowers/trees, natural beauty.

We were thinking how easy/costly would be to fly to Florida, (may be Florida keys) but just wondered if anyone has other suggestions please? Thanks

Mid-March is Spring Break for most of the country. Beaches will be crowded, hotels/condos expensive, especially on Texas and Florida beaches where the warm waters are.

You could easily fly from Dallas (DAL) to Florida on Southwest Airlines, who usually have cheap airfare. Book sooner vs later because the flights fill up and the fares increase.

Welcome to the US!

Hi knr Thanks for the info, really useful to know. Our stay in Dallas is 13 - 16 March, so maybe we would be better having the week in Florida first, to avoid the crowds a bit.

Spring break for most schools in Texas is March 10 - 14. Not the best time for beach and/or traveling. Make your plans early.

If you go to South Padre (far south Texas coast), the week after you are in Dallas would probably be less crazy, since, as Octoboy noted, most Texas schools will have Spring Break the week before. While you could easily fly there, Florida will be busy for almost all of March and April.
