The Atlantic hurricane season doesn't start until June 1 -- and it's being predicted that this year will be especially gnarly -- so now is a great time to visit New Orleans for fairly reliable sun and 80-plus-degree days. The occasional thunderstorm may punctuate the day, but think of it as an opportunity to duck in and order a rum-based hurricane cocktail.
While most of the country finally starts feeling like spring -- though a month behind what's normal in many places -- poor Montana is still dealing with snow flurries and freezing temps overnight. Though the capital city may be best known for its outdoor activities, if you've already put away your winter gear, head indoors to the Holter Museum of Art or the Montana Historical Society.
