When is the best time to travel in the USA?

The simple answer is that the USA is a perfect year-round destination and when you visit totally depends on what type of trip you're after. In case you hadn't noticed, the USA is pretty darn big so the weather can vary quite a bit from state to state. Prices tend to be highest country-wide during the school summer break (June - August) and winter break (December - January), so travel during off peak times.
