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 Philadelphia

Peak Season: June to August

Lots of families crowd attractions and drive up prices during these months. Stay far, far away on July 4th – unless, of course, you’re here specifically for the celebration and fireworks. Expect temperatures in the high 70s.

Off Season: September to February

Falling leaves correspond with falling prices in Philly. Winter brings the lowest rates and thinnest crowds but chilly weather. (Although September can see temperatures in the 70s, February averages 30°F.)

Sweet Spot: March to May

Spring brings nice weather (average temperature: 53°F), reasonable prices, and fewer crowds relative to summer. The only downside? Groups of school kids at virtually every historical attraction.
