Why travel during the off-peak season?
There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. Florida, New Orleans, and Southern California are the most popular in springtime. Winter is prime for Mexico and the Caribbean because of its warm weather, as well as ski and snowboard destinations like the Colorado Rockies. Who doesn't love some good fall foliage? The Pacific Northwest, Northern California, and New England are popular this time of the year. Flying during the off-peak seasons to certain locations can mean extra money in your wallet -- yes, please!
