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 Minneapolis

Peak Season: April to August

The spring thaw ushers in the busiest tourism period, when Midwesterners and ever-increasing throngs of the further-flung flock to the city for its long summer days; naturally, expect higher hotel rates.

Off Season: November to March

Winters can be harsh, but they’re rendered bearable for tourists (if only downtown) via the glass-enclosed skyway system.

Sweet Spot: September to October

Early fall is actually one of the best times to visit, with cooler but nice temps and gorgeous fall foliage vistas just outside of town.
