Pacific Northwest

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 Pacific Northwest

Peak Season: June to September

Book hotel and restaurant reservations well in advance and get parking tickets early. It’s worth braving the crowds for the perfect weather, Pacific breezes, and alpine meadows in bloom.

Off Season: October to February

Lighter crowds mean you’ll have the Pacific Northwest to yourself. Snow sports enthusiasts clamber up peaks and storm-watchers hole up in cozy coastal and island lodges.

Sweet Spot: March to May

Spring brings cherry blossoms, wildflowers, and rain (March is the wettest month). Take advantage of sunshine without the summer hordes in April and May.
