For most of us, getting to experience an amazing traveling adventure during the summer vacation period is an opportunity to cherish, whether you will be going on your own, with your family or with your friends. Some people avoid vacations altogether because they are at a high season with hot temps and crowds, or at a low season where the weather is believed to be bad and unfavorable. However, this does not mean that you should stop taking your vacations!
A shoulder season is the period between the low and the high season; a good vacation time where you will find prices and the weather reasonable, guaranteeing you have a very nice trip. Some of the benefits and reasons as to why you should have a vacation during the shoulder season are:
Most people love traveling during the high season and this is because of the amazing weather. But one disadvantage is you end up spending a lot of money which could put a damper on your trip. During the shoulder season, the weather is reasonable and the prices are friendly. You will end up spending less than what you could have spent during the high season AND still gain the value of the cash spent.
Not all of us love going on a vacation to a place that is crowded with other travelers. During the high season, you will get to experience a crowd of people and a long lines trying to access the areas you wish to visit – which can be frustrating and waste much of your precious time! You can avoid all these headaches by taking a vacation during the shoulder season where the crowds are smaller and the lines shorter, giving you a better experience during your trip.
The low season (off-peak) comes at cheaper prices but the weather during this period won’t be quite as friendly for your trip. High season, on the other hand, has good weather but at times can even be a bit too hot and unbearable. By taking a vacation during the shoulder season you will benefit from the reasonable weather which makes both indoor and outdoor activities pleasant.
There you have it! Traveling during the Shoulder Season has a number of good benefits. Will you be traveling this shoulder season?
