The Ides of March are on the horizon. Now, we're not all that worried about whatever luck they may or may not bring. We're more interested in fleeing the impending March Gloom. Below are five destinations that we're looking forward to running off to: abundant sunshine, #spring2018 Instagram ops and most importantly, no rowdy Spring Breakers.
Take your pick and leave the rest to us—it's time to spring forward and start your next adventure.
Yes, there are scarier things you can encounter in a hotel room than Harvey Weinstein in a bathrobe.

It’s not just Bates Motel–type places that are beset by these undead spirits—some of these ghosts happen to have great taste in hotels. Hauntings have been reported at all of the luxurious digs listed below—all unproven legends, of course. But if you’re concerned, book with Skylark so we can upgrade you to an exorcised room.
