Denver/Colorado: Might as well come in the winter for the skiing. Also Parade of Lights the first weekend in December, the Stock Show in January.

Anyone coming to the DNC in August?

Iowa as a whole is best to visit in the fall (late August-late October). Crops are being harvested, so the farmers' markets and roadside stands are at their best. The State Fair and county fairs are wrapping up, school is back in session so there's great college and high-school football games every weekend, beautiful scenery and mild weather, the lakes are still warm, hunting and fishing is good, etc.

You do know that show won't be popular forever, right? I mean Minneapolis doesn't bank on Mary Tyler Moore anymore, even if they did put up a statue...

October is easily the best time to visit New Hampshire. Most of the state is at peak foliage colours on Columbus Day weekend.

Summer's great too, and there's more going on then, but if you prefer a little peace and quiet, then May and September are great months. The weather's just right, and there aren't many tourists around. Plus May has all the beautiful spring trees and flowers.

Of course, Christmas time is lovely as well. The only times I wouldn't recommend coming to the state would be early November - mid-December, or mid-March - late April.

Anytime during the summer for Chicago. All the parks have lots of beautiful flowers and trees, plus the grass is really green. It is the best time to walk around downtown, too. There are also lots and lots of festivals, including the Taste of Chicago, which is coming up on June 27th.

Orange County/Anaheim- Visit Disneyland the week after Labor Day. Most schools start this week and DLand will be empty of locals and summer crowds. It is bar none, the best week for Disney. The weather is also still warm enough that you can swim at the beaches in Newport, Huntington, or Laguna. Head up to Universal Studios in LA, Knotts Berry Farm, and Six Flags for less crowds at those theme parks also.

Summer is the best time of year in San Diego. The weather is the best and most consistent, at least near the coast, and is more the typical SD people think of. Summer is really the only time its warm enough to swim in the water in SD.

Also some of SD's best events take place during this time like the San Diego County Fair (largest in CA after the state fair in Sac), the horse races at the Del Mar Racetrack is a classic summer event here (only a 6 week racing season). Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day are all huge holidays here. SeaWorld does a fireworks show every night during the summer. Summer is Zonie season, lots of tourists escaping the desert heat. Street Scene Music Festival. Comic Con. Plus a bunch of other festivals and fairs I don't really go to.

It's all that Scranton has to look forward to until we officially become annexed as a suburb of New York City. Why not let us enjoy our moment in the limelight while it lasts? Lord knows most people on this forum are probably geographically illiterate and probably couldn't point out Pittsburgh, let alone Scranton on a map.
