Looking for great deals, fewer crowds, and perfect weather that starts to cool down?
The travel experts call “Shoulder Season” between the peak season and the rainy or cold weather of low season; this period between high and low season is when prices drop.
This makes Shoulder Season, the perfect time for many travelers.
Fall it’s just the right time to get the opportunity to avoid and even beat the big crowds, enjoy the colorful and beautiful weather, greater availability of hotel rooms, restaurant reservations and of course save some more money making your parking reservations.
You will also notice a nicer and warmer welcome everywhere you go.
It can be difficult to make reservations during July & August vacation season.
A general rule for picking a Shoulder Season is to avoid school holidays and the “obvious” times to travel, but to keep as close to high season as you can.
September, October and November are the months where you can start planning on making a reservation well in advance or plan to travel somewhere.
Here are some tips that would help you a lot:
- The first two weekends of October are the state’s busiest of the year. Book these dates as early as possible. For example, by those dates, resorts, as well as hotels or restaurants tend to offer special discounts or packages.
- Book mid-week, usually properties that fill up on weekends often have vacancies during the week.
- Sometimes you may spend the same amount of money you normally would, but it would be worth it because places are not crowded which means you can have a more enjoyable and luxurious trip
- Making reservations during the Shoulder Season may allow you to visit expensive places that maybe you could not afford on high season.
- When you make a reservation during this season, you will save some money, which means that you will have more cash to spend, you can eat more, you can attend more places and you can even save for your next trip.
We hope these incentives help you save more money and enjoy even more the beautiful colorful weather given by Mother Nature.
