Belgians or Cyclists or Belgian Cyclists: Help me plan a spring trip to Belgium.

So, the UCI has just announced the 2012 calendar and I'm planning a trip to Belgium this April. I'd like to attend one of the Spring Classics, as well as visit several different cities (Antwerp, Bruges, Liège, maybe Ghent), and do more standard touristy things (art museums, beer, etc.). I'm looking to spend a week or so, but I want to take a pretty casual pace. Is this reasonable? Which Classic should I attend (right now I'm debating between the Ronde van Vlaanderen and Liège-Bastogne-Liège)? Which is the easiest to watch? What is the best time in April to go? Early or late in the month (I understand that April was unseasonably warm last year)? How difficult is it to book during this period? What other suggestions would you make?
