Best time to visit Philadelphia, PA, USA?

  • The best time to travel to Philadelphia is during the mid summer when temperatures are hot but hotels are a lot cheaper. For a 1-bedroom vacation rental, expect to pay approximately $120 per night during this period. That's 30% cheaper than what you would have paid in May. Temperatures are in the mid 80s, a little warmer than the average 70°F you could experience during peak season.
  • The busiest season for tourism in Philadelphia is in the late spring/early summer so expect higher hotel and rental prices. The Graduation week (May 9th - 16th), the Labor Day week (September 1st - 5th) as well as the Holidays week (December 22nd to January 2nd) are also very popular periods, so expect the highest room rates of the year.
  • It rains most days between May and July, so make sure to bring your umbrella if you visit Philadelphia during this period.
