Best Time to Visit the USA

When is the best time to visit US

The best time to visit Washington (DC) is from March to May and from September to November, however peak season lasts from April to September officially. New York can be visited all year round. Philadelphia weather can be unbearably stuffy and humid in the summertime and quite cold in winter. So if you are planning to visit Philadelphia consider spring or autumn period. September is the most favourable time for a visiting Chicago and southern coast of the Great Lakes, as summer period might be rather hot, (besides smog from urban areas might spoil your mood a bit) winter has wet and relatively cold conditions between 2°C below zero to 11°C below zero.

The best time for Louisiana and Texas trip is spring (February – April) and autumn, (September and October are the driest months) but early summer is also quite favourable because of weather conditions. In New Mexico you can find quite diverse natural conditions – during summer time it is usually hot and dry weather, winter has cool but not cold weather. In mountainous parts of the state snow falls, so ski season lasts from Thanksgiving day to Easter.

Dry and hot climate in Utah is known for its hard-to-bear heat, severe thunderstorms during summer and heavy snowfall in mountain regions in winter. If you plan to visit this state consider off-season or mid winter time if you fond of skiing. For visiting Las Vegas (NV) prefer spring or autumn months, as summer is really hot there (the average July temperature is 42°C), winter has cool weather (an average temperature is about 13°C), but from nearby desert dry and dusty winds blow.

The best time to visit Hawaii is anytime. Hawaiian weather mostly depends on your location on the islands. The windward east coast is warm and humid all year round, while the leeward west and southwestern coast has dry and considerably hotter weather.

Alaska is the most unusual state for it’s climate conditions. The best time to visit this distant region is summer, when air on most territory warms up to 18-22°C (in northern parts to 2-6°C). However, even during this time the cold arctic wind may blow, providing temperature drop (sometimes up to 2°C) or provide prolonged rainy days. In winter, the temperature drops to the mark of 45-50°C below zero in the northern parts, while the southern regions have a bit warmer figures – an average of 2-16°C below zero in lowland parts and up to 18-24°C below zero in the mountains.
