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 Memphis

Peak Season: July to September

With an average summer temperature of 80 degrees, high humidity, and throngs of tourists, high season can seem like an endurance test. Accommodations and attractions fill up early so book well in advance.

Off Season: November to April

Other than around the King’s birthday in January, low season offers the best hotel room deals. Forty-degree temperatures make it hard to enjoy that heart-shaped swimming pool, but you’ll escape lines at dinner and daytime distractions.

Sweet Spot: May; October

By far the most pleasant months, May and October make up Memphis’ brief shoulder season. Temperatures are in the high 60s and tourist numbers are down, giving visitors more time to linger and see the sights.
