Peak Season vs Low Season

  • Summer, spanning from June through August, offers a clear view of the Boston skyline and its picturesque surroundings. Expect a higher footfall of visitors during this period. If you are comfortable with slightly cooler temperatures, consider scheduling your trip for the fall months of September to November. Arriving early can help you avoid the crowds, and you can savor the crisp autumn air for a more serene experience.
  • For those seeking a winter spirit, December to February is an excellent time to explore Boston, as the city comes alive with the festivities. However, be prepared for frigid temperatures often below 0°. Alternatively, you can opt for a springtime visit, spanning from March to May. During this period, the weather is gentle, and the crowds are more manageable.

Peak Season: May to September

Low Season: December to February
