It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Los Angeles

Peak Season: June to August

Top attractions are packed, many coastal hotels are filled to capacity, and the inland parts of the city can be miserably hot.

Off Season: October to April

You’ll get the most bang for your buck, with thinner crowds, less smog, and a temperate climate that practically assures winter warmth.

Sweet Spot: May; September

Crowds are thinner before and after the summer school break, and you can still swim in the relatively warm ocean come fall.

“Many all-inclusive resorts allow kids to stay for free. Look for adults-only resorts if you're looking for peace and quiet.”
