Below are the best locations for a trip from April 16th to April 22nd. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In mid April each of these places are the perfect balance between temperate weather and smaller crowds, which also translates into better deals for tourists.
Because we’ve located areas and times where there is a greater chance for hotels/flights to be under capacity and weather is likely to be temperate and dry, the best time to book these 10 trips is usually within 1-4 weeks before travel.
1. Rhodes, Greece
Rhodes has perfect weather from April 16th to April 22nd. The weather is almost as nice in the weeks before and ideal in the weeks after. Tourism in the area is slow during this time. Choosing Rhodes this week is a great choice for anyone looking for nice weather and lower prices.

3. Funchal, Portugal
Due to the lower number of tourists, a trip to Funchal in mid April tends to be much less expensive, and the weather couldn’t be better. This period of ideal weather comes after some similarly enjoyable weather. If booking a longer trip, you’ll want to know that the weather remains nice for the next 30 days. Due to the more remote nature crowds are usually manageable year-round.

4. San Jose, CA, US
As with every place on this list, temperatures in San Jose feel excellent, rain is infrequent, and there are no travel advisories at the moment. Tourists looking for hotels and flights are uncommon during this time, so prices may be lower. Because it’s a little less common of a destination, massive crowds aren’t likely. We wouldn’t recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is as good as mid April.

With far fewer travelers booking during this time compared to the busiest months, hotels and airlines will probably offer some incentives to stay during this period. This is a good time to visit, but the weeks beforehand are also very nice. If you’re planning to stay for more than a week, you’ll likely find enjoyable weather the whole time.
