It’s the first day of Spring and you know what that means. The weather is getting warmer, the sun is out more, and everybody wants to put their responsibilities on hold to take in the bloom of the new season. Whether you’re working or in school, it’s the time of year to take some time off. One of the most popular ways to spend these Spring days is on vacation often in a tropical or otherwise seaside location away from home. Hyrule and the other lands of the Zelda franchise are packed with perfect places to travel to, be it for a fun time or relaxation. Where would you take yourself? Where in Hyrule (or any Zelda world you like) would you spend Spring break?
I’ve long felt compelled to champion the beauty of this area and I’m ready to do it again. I absolutely love the Twilight Princess iteration of Lake Hylia. After it’s uncorrupted, naturally. It is a beautiful location with serene shores, placid waters, and a yawning view of the sky. The nearby Lakebed Temple and Spirit Spring offer a glimpse into the local Zora culture and regional mythos, respectively. There’s plenty of fun to be had with Fyer’s Cannon Ride (which I’m sure is inspected regularly and totally safe), Falbi’s Flight-by-Fowl (ditto), and the adjacent rafting games on Zora’s River. On an adventurous day, I can climb the bluffs to the Lantern Cavern or the tower in the west. All the while, one of the most soothing songs in the entire franchise lingers in the background. I know the music probably isn’t intended to be diegetic, but just let me dream!
What about you? Where in Hyrule would you spend Spring break? What would you do there? Let us know in the comments below!
