We're planning a trip to Croatia where our flight goes directly into Zadar. We want to do at least Plitvice lakes as a Touristy thing but are hoping to avoid being stuck in the center of a bunch of tourists...
Are there any specific towns or islands that have great places to eat but are also close enough to the city to get to Zadar for nightlife if we wanted too? This was our original plan but the drive/car rental has the other couple nervous as they think we'll get lost. I know we cant get from Hvar to Zadar but we believe Hvar does have a great mix of city, beaches and cuisine.. Is there anything like this in North Dalmatia?
June 14: ZADAR (Arrive @ 8PM)
June 15: Morning – Drive to Plitvice Lakes then to Split
June 16: Spend day in Split - Possibly check out one of the top romantic beaches in the world: Brela Beach (1hr drive) head back to Split.
June 17: Hvar for the Day - Catch a ferry then hire a boat tour out to visit Pakleni Islands and beaches - Back to Split.
June 18: Relax in Split for the morning and then go to Zagreb (3hrs by car – 5 by train)
June 19: ZAGREB (FLIGHT @9AM)
