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 Bucks County

Peak Season: June to early-September

When school is out, families head to Sesame Place and the quaint towns of Bucks County for a break from the routine. During weekends, crowds line the streets of New Hope and Doylestown, resulting in higher rates at notable bed-and-breakfasts. Temperatures hover in the mid to low 80s.

Off Season: December to February

In the winter, there are few attractions open for business in Bucks County, besides the December 25th reenactment of General George Washington’s crossing of the icy Delaware River at Washington’s Crossing Park. Rates are low for an easy weekend getaway.

Sweet Spot (shoulder season): late-September to November; March to May

Bucks County remains a popular weekend destination throughout the spring and fall. Weekend warriors and day-trippers alike patronize the antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, and B&Bs. Weekend rates tend to be moderate until mid-May, when Sesame Place re-opens and the crowds start to re-appear.
