When is the best time to go to Miami?

The climate in the city of Miami describes that of a sun-lover's dream holiday and for good reason: it's sunny almost all year. Since there is no actual winter in Miami, the period between December and February faces a general influx in tourists, who are fleeing the bitter cold of the northern United States and Canada. However, the peak tourist season is from March to July and visitors flock here to attend the Mardi Gras Carnival. Then comes the Easter season, which is at its peak in terms of affluence, specifically during Holy Week and Easter weekend. Know that contrary to appearances, the hottest months, July, August and September, representing the summer, are actually less crowded. This period corresponds to the hurricane season which is to avoid as much as possible as there is also a strong possibility for the occurrence of rainy days. The preferred period, if one desires to enjoy the beaches and sun, away from the crowds because vacationers are few, is the off-season which ranges from October to November.
