Spain at a Glance
Spain's varied landscapes, delicious food and welcoming people make it an interesting and diverse place to spend a vacation.
Spain's Atlantic coast is rugged, rocky and can have exciting winds, heavy rains or just a beautiful sunset. Take a scenic drive over the sea bluffs to smell the salt, feel the breeze and watch the red sun sink deep into the Atlantic. After the sun has set, enjoy fresh vegetables, seafood and wine late into the evening.
Some parts of Spain are hot, parched and sun baked. Enjoy these temperatures as a way to thaw out before heading up into the Pyrenees. Follow twisting narrow roads deep into the heart of the mountains. Observe castles, fortifications and the canon slots of old poking out in the otherwise bucolic landscape. As you hike or drive through this area, sheep graze on vertical pastures and village church bells ring.
Spain's Mediterranean coast is a vacation resort area. Sailboats dot the harbors, beach goers turn bronze while baking on the sands. Fragrant, vibrant cities buzz with shopping, nightlife and culture. Whatever your fancy, there's plenty to enjoy in Spain.
