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 Cape Canaveral

Peak Season: late-November to early-September

The Space Coast is popular nearly year-round. Beaches are packed during the 90-degree summers and in early fall, when big waves lure surfers. Winter brings cold-weather escapees from the north, while spring sees swarms of college kids and British tourists.

Off Season: late-September to mid-November

The cape calms down for a very brief period in late Fall (temperatures average in the 70s).Visitors who come during this time will have the beaches largely to themselves.

Sweet Spot

There is no true shoulder season on Cape Canaveral – consider traveling during the low season (late September through the middle of November) for fewer crowds and better deals.
