The Best Times to Take a Vacation

You have vacation days, and you are not afraid to use them. But when? An article at Forbes has the answer, providing some clever insights you might not have thought of yourself.

Rubbing Shoulders

The cheapest time to travel is in the ‘off-season,’ but they call it the off-season for a reason—it is not a great time to go. Many tourist attractions offer limited hours or are closed completely during these times. Instead, target that sweet spot between high season and off-season called the ‘shoulder’ season, where weather and prices are more moderate and there are still things to do. However, if you have school-aged kids which necessarily limit when you can travel, there are still smart things you can do. For instance, you can pick a more obscure beach to visit, and make accommodations (travel, hotel, restaurant) far in advance to avoid inopportune conditions (long waits and drives) later. Try not to schedule vacation during work periods that you know are especially busy though; you do not want to leave your colleagues even more swamped.
