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 Seattle

Peak Season: May to September

Plan and book in advance. Seattle summers can be sublime (temperatures in the 70s) and the hotels and attractions are running at full tilt.

Off Season: November to February

The best hotel deals can be found this time of year. Although it’s the city’s low tourist season (average temperatures: low 40s), it’s high season for arts and culture with events like Seattle Center Winterfest.

Sweet Spot: October; March to April

There is no true “shoulder season” in Seattle. Hotel and other deals run hot and cold during fall and spring months, just like the weather (temperatures tend to average in the 50s).
