During summer, the northern states enjoy warm even hot days and cooler mornings and nights, while southern states and tropical areas experience very hot temperatures.
In the autumn, temperatures begin to cool down around the country. This is a welcome season in northern regions, where leaves change to beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange.
Winter is fairly mild in the southern states, while the northern, northeastern, midwestern, western mountains and Great Plains regions often encounter snow and colder temperatures.
During the spring, temperatures begin to warm up and thunderstorms and rainstorms are common across the country into the summer months.
Best time to go
The US is a year-round destination offering various outdoor pursuits that are limited to specific seasons and geographic regions. Generally speaking, the Spring (March - May) and Autumn (September - October) are the most comfortable in terms of heat, humidity, and rainfall. Transportation is limited in certain snowy regions during Winter (November - February) and Summer (June - August) can be very hot and humid in the South. Avoid travel to Spring Break destinations in March and Summer Vacation hotspots in September as school breaks have a significant impact on tourism.
