What are shoulder seasons?
There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer.

Unless you're a ski bum -- then places like Colorado will be your winter wonderland. In the autumn, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. Flying during less popular periods can mean extra money in your wallet -- yes, please!
