Best Time To Visit Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Best Time To Go To Philadelphia

If you are planning to visit Philadelphia, just keep in mind that the city can be extremely cold in winters making it an inappropriate time to visit. Quite understandably, the best time to visit Philadelphia is between March to August when the city is warm enough to roam around and visit all of its attractions. Summer is also the best time to visit the city’s zoos and various other open spaces which might otherwise get enshrouded in gloominess during winters.

  • June-August: This is the peak season to visit Philadelphia as the temperatures range between the lower 70s and mid-80s for you to roam around and enjoy the vignettes of the city. Make sure you book the tickets in advance as the hotel prices unusually surge up during this time. Apart from being touristy, June-August is also the most expensive time to visit Philadelphia.
  • September-February: While September is still warm to visit Philadelphia, November-January can prove to be really harsh and a low season to visit this city. However, you will get hotels at really inexpensive prices to make your stay a worthy one, provided you can bear the chill well. September and October will unfurl the beauty of Autumn leaves and foliage if you decide to visit the city during this time.
  • March-May: This is the best time to visit Philadelphia as it is the spring season and the temperatures range from the mid-30s and lower 50s in March and the mid-50s and lower 70s in May. Accommodation prices unusually rise up and the city gets enlivened during the month of July with Philadelphia Freedom Festival.
