- Times to Travel: It's difficult to suggest the best time to travel to the United States, as the country is a popular destination year-round; major attractions and national parks are most crowded in the summer months; fall is a desirable season in most areas of the country, especially in the New England, the Midwest and Mountain states; Arizona, California, Florida and Texas are ideal (escape the winter) destinations, and if winter sports are to your liking, the Rocky Mountain states feature some of the best skiing on the planet. In short, the USA has a perfect destination for anyone, at anytime of the year.
