Best time to visit Boston, MA, USA?

  • The best time to visit Boston is in August when temperatures are still warm but room rates are less expensive. During this period, a one-bedroom rental costs around $185/night. That's $10 cheaper than what you would have paid in June. Average temperatures hover in the high 70s, just a bit warmer than the average 70°F you would get during peak season.
  • Tourism peaks in Boston during the late spring/summer, which comes with higher hotel and rental rates. The Marathon week (April 13th - 18th), the Labor Day week (September 1st - 6th) as well as the Regatta week (October 18th - 24th) are also popular dates that you should avoid if you're on a budget.
  • When visiting Boston from November through March be prepared to encounter some snow.
