Which major American cities do you feel have more activity during a specific time of year? While all cities will remain busy throughout the year, most cities are noticeably less populated or "happening" during certain seasons and have their peak activity during others.


For example, Miami is considered "in season" during its winter months, as the humidity levels are down and people flee the brutal winters up North. Washington D.C.'s peak activity occurs during the spring, with the annual Cherry Blossom festival drawing over a million and a half visitors. What other cities have noticeable peak seasons and valleys? Which of those are outside the norm?

New Orleans - Any season but summer.

Sure, it's busy in the summer. But those tourists are masochists. Many activities in NOLA fall in Winter and Spring... January-->May.

Falll is particularly enjoyable in Philly when the returning students fill the streets and the leaves start to change colors.

Chicago is a summer city. I agree with Miami for winter and DC for spring. Somewhere back east for fall, or the Midwest, since the nice cool temperatures and leaves changing.... Although Denver is a great fall city too.

Yes, Miami's/Florida's season is winter.
most of the northeast's season is summer/Fall
Pacific Northwest definitely Summer.
Denver Colorado and related skiing areas- winter

southern Cal tho? I actually don't know what their season would be? Maybe Fall?

There's not all that many snowbirds in Miami compared to all the other parts of South Florida, honestly. Its too rowdy for old white folks lol. They're rather go to Naples or Boca. Miami's top seasons for activity are spring and summer. March in particular, with Ultra and spring break. Summer, cuz the beach. I mean come on, who would rather go swimming in 70 degrees over 90? I never go swimming in Miami in the winter, that's for Canadians!

Fall is the season to be in Texas, cuz its football season. The Cowboys are big in Dallas and high school/college football is big in the rest of the state.

Fall for Boston too, as its just so beautiful up there that time of year.

Winter and Summer for Minneapolis. Winter is what people apparently think its like there for half the year, but really, when it actually is winter, there's lots of people that go ice skating, cross country skiing etc.
And in summer, everyone hits the lakes and parks, and all kinds of festivals and concerts.
