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 Miami
Peak Season: December to MarchWeather is delightful in late fall through spring, which explains why most visitors visit during this time.
Off Season: June to AugustUncomfortable summer weather (average high is 87°F) usually stems the tourist tides, however, August isn’t always a slam-dunk in terms of finding available rooms in SoBe, thanks to families on summer vacation and traveling Europeans.
Sweet Spot: April to May; September to OctoberGet the best bang for your buck September through November, after the kids go back to school and before winter kicks into high gear. Watch out for hurricane season, though, which runs from June to November. Occasionally, deals can also be had in April and May, as peak season winds down.
