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 Atlanta

Peak Season: May to September

Temperatures and tourist numbers rise each summer, with only the omnipresent air-conditioning providing relief from sweltering humidity levels. Summer showers are also common.

Off Season: January to April

Winters are cooler and much less crowded with tourists, but truly cold temperatures and snow are rarities. In April, the city’s famous dogwoods start to bloom, signaling the start of spring.

Sweet Spot: October to December

With the summer heat gone and the leaves turning brilliant colors, fall in Atlanta makes for delightful sightseeing. The holidays bring in throngs of shoppers from across the South; be sure to account for extra traffic around the malls during the holiday season.
