People always say, “you’ve got to see Paris at Christmas,” “New York City is at its best in the fall,” “San Diego is perfect in June,” or even “make sure and see Alaska in the middle of summer” – but are they right? Let’s find out! Lost Waldo is gonna tell us which spots are perfect to visit, month-by-month.

January – The Caribbean

Not only is it nice to get away from snowy winters, but many resorts and cruise lines discount tickets up to 50% if you visit in the off-season. Add that to no crowds, and you’ve got a winner!

It’s not always about avoiding the cold – sometimes it’s about reveling in it! February is the perfect time to visit the most popular ski resort in North America. Even if you don’t ski, there’s always tubing, hot cocoa, snowboarding, and warm fires.

March – Nashville, Tennessee

The kids will be headed for the beaches, leaving pleasant 61 degree temperatures, live music, great breweries, and a growing food scene for the adults to enjoy. Why not?

April – Peru’s Sacred Valley

April’s rain showers come and go, but think about this – lower prices mean smaller crowds, and the rain will ensure that the farmer’s markets are bursting with the early harvest. If you’ve dreamed about seeing the sun rise over Machu Picchu, April is the perfect time to make it come true.

May – New York, New York

People might say there’s never a bad time to visit NYC (they’re lying – the entire city smells like a toilet in August), but May truly is the perfect choice. The parks will be in bloom, and you might be able to squeeze in a slightly less crowded trip between spring vacationers and the ones who don’t know better about summer.

June – New England (Road Trip!)

With July being New England’s prime tourist season, you’ll be able to dodge the crowd and save a few bucks by visiting early. The moderate, pleasant temperatures and gorgeous scenery are sure to charm you.

This is a great choice for a summer beach vacation. Bonus points if you can make your trip match up with their Carnival celebration!
