    A lot of the newer attractions are year-round. Some shows close mid-Dec and re-open March or April.
    I'm thinking it was the 1st or 2nd week in January, about 3 years ago

    Estes Park/RMNP would be nice in September. The elk all over the place is something special. Beautiful place.

    You couldn't pick a worse time. Everyone's somewhere else, celebrating that another year is over. Some go to New Year's for a final big fling.

    Interesting. I often think that's a good time to go places, miss the Christmas/New Years rush, but still get better weather than home (for those of us who live in cold climates). Maybe that's more true for warm destinations, where there is still enough demand to keep things running those weeks. I suppose if its so not busy stuff is closed that's not great

    Our first RCI week was a $99 getaway to Hot Springs in January, 1990. We had the place to ourselves. We had work to do, so took a trailer full of it, and sat in a condo there and did it.

    Somehow it felt better than doing it at home.

    Well, except for the snow/ice storm we drove back to Kansas City in.

    The Caribbean (and Mexico) in late November (after Thanksgiving) and early December (before Christmas) are considered as off season as you can get. It's usually cold enough at home that you feel like you are escaping to someplace else and it is after the hurricane season. Airfare and other resort and sightseeing deals abound. While some daytrip operators may not schedule tours during this time others do and you might be the only once on your snorkeling trip and get extra time and attention.

    We head to Hawaii in the beginning of December for 2 - 3 weeks and come home for Christmas. I'm not sure if this is off season. Mid September is good for Manhattan and many beaches. Some off season areas are way too hot during their off season but if you like heat then the sun belt areas would be good in summer.

    I highly recommend NYC in Jan/Feb. Crowds are low, as are hotel prices. Tickets to shows and reservations for fine dining are much easier to get. Weather can vary from the 50s on down to snow but the subway saves any real trouble getting around and you don't need to spend a lot of time outdoors.
