Traveling During Shoulder Season

Do you travel during the shoulder seasons? They are the small windows between high seasons (and low season) when prices are lower, tourists seem to be less prevalent, the weather is still decent, and locals looking for adventurous travels are genuinely pleased to see you. These seasons are typically April through mid-June, September, and October. Of course this can vary by location and hemisphere, but they are generally a safe bet.

For us, it has proven to be a lovely time to travel. Two years ago we went to Lake Como and enjoyed quiet streets, long dinners, mini golf, and walks along the lake. Last year we went to Bali for our honeymoon and not only had amazing weather but also braved smaller crowds and saved money, to boot (Bali parts 1 // 2 // 3 // 4)

We’re off to somewhere new on Wednesday for another shoulder season trip so I thought it was worth mentioning. It’s a great time of year to travel and I hope we make it a family tradition, though it appears we already have!

What about you? Do you like to travel this time of year? Where to? We’ve done a lot of traveling this year (and we’re not done yet!) but my list of places to explore keeps growing like crazy.
