Shoulder season: The time to travel like a local

As a travel expert, I’m always looking for ways to help my clients get the most out of their trips. And one of the best ways to do that is to travel during shoulder season.

If you’re not familiar with the term, shoulder season is the period of time between a destination’s peak season and off-season. It’s typically the spring and fall months, but it can vary depending on the destination.

There are many benefits to traveling during shoulder season. For one, it’s often the cheapest time to go. You can save money on flights, accommodation, and activities.

Another great benefit of shoulder season travel is that you’ll avoid the crowds. This is especially important if you’re visiting a popular tourist destination. During peak season, these places can be overrun with people, making it difficult to enjoy yourself. Travel Deals

But shoulder season is also a great time to experience a destination’s culture without the tourist traps. You’ll be able to interact with locals and get a more authentic feel for the place.

Of course, there are a few drawbacks to traveling during shoulder season. For one, some attractions may be closed. This is especially true for outdoor attractions that are dependent on good weather.

Another drawback is that some festivals and events may be cancelled. This is also more likely to happen during shoulder season.

Finally, some businesses may have limited hours during shoulder season. This is especially true for businesses that are dependent on tourist traffic.

Overall, though, the benefits of shoulder season travel far outweigh the drawbacks. If you’re flexible with your travel dates, you can save money, avoid crowds, and enjoy a more authentic travel experience.

Here are my tips for planning a shoulder season trip

  • Be flexible with your travel dates. If you can, avoid traveling during school breaks and major holidays. These times are typically the busiest and most expensive times to travel.
  • Do your research. Before you book your trip, research the destination to see what attractions and activities are open during shoulder season. You should also check the weather forecast to make sure you’re packing appropriate clothing.
  • Be prepared for some closures. It’s possible that some attractions and businesses may be closed during shoulder season. Be prepared to adjust your itinerary accordingly.

With a little planning, you can have a wonderful shoulder season vacation that’s both affordable and enjoyable.
