Peak season

The United States of America, USA for short, sprawls across the middle of North America, and is composed of 50 states. First time travellers arriving on flights to the USA have a huge choice of fascinating destinations to choose from in this vast nation. From breathtaking natural wonders, to mammoth and fascinating man made cities of towering steel and glass. Generally the peak tourist season runs from May to September, and the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn are the most picturesque months to visit the east and west coasts. The best time to visit really depends on where in the USA you are going and what you want to see. For travel during the shoulder seasons book at least a month in advance and for the high season book at least six months in advance. Holidays and annual events are major reasons for many visitors to arrive on flights to the USA, so check city events calendars before booking flight tickets.

 


Off season

Cheap flights to the USA can always be found in the winter. Flight ticket prices and temperatures drop markedly in the winter months in the northern states, with the exception of ski resorts. Most attractions in the larger cities remain open all year round but the smaller coastal towns and seasonal destinations close during the winter.
