Why In-the-Know Travelers Love Shoulder Season

Apr 18, 2015
Peak season is too expensive. Low season is too cold (or hot). But shoulder season? Well, shoulder season is juuuuust right.

The weeks and months surrounding peak dates, called “shoulder season,” often represents a great window where the demand isn’t as high, deals are strong and the destination is still very appealing. You often get the added benefit of smaller crowds as well. Lucky for us, this week’s #Top20 is chock-full of hotels that fit the bill.
