It's spring and you know what that means: Spring break is on the horizon. But not every state -- or every school within a state -- has spring break during the same week. So, as you might expect, some of those weeks are going to be pricier than others.

Travelocity's Genevieve Shaw Brown has done a week-by-week analysis of average vacation package prices in the 10 most popular destinations and pulled together a handy chart to share with us to illustrate which weeks will be the most expensive and which will be relative deals.

Check out the findings in the chart above. To sum it up: It will cost you the most to travel the week before Easter (April 24), and the least -- on average 15 percent less -- to travel the following week, which, according to Shaw Brown, is shaping up to be the least expensive travel week of spring.
