    Depends on you, what you like, and when you can go places.

    A lot of the popular family destinations are dependent on school schedules, so if you go when schools are in session, stuff is more available and not so busy.

    I hate to give examples, like Orlando, or SW FL, or Branson, or Williamsburg, or wherever, because I don't know what you like.

    But just to pick one, in the Branson area, school gets out mid-May, so the first week of May would be "off-season", but with the same weather and attractions. One might think that November and December would be off-season, but it is not. But, lake resorts in the Branson area have a short peak, Mid-May through September, and are generally available the rest of the time.

    You would think summer on the beach in SW FL would be peak season, but December-April is.

    I definitely agree that slightly off season is often a great time to travel. I love the Canadian rockies the week after labour day, school is back, but the weather is still great.

    I am stuck with the school schedule for 4 more years, but I would think Cape Cod or the Carolinas coastline in early September would be nice.
    I've tried NYC in January and February. Not so nice.

    When, and when?

    A lot of the newer attractions are year-round. Some shows close mid-Dec and re-open March or April.

    We have traveled a lot of places off season- New England is nice in May and June and September- even late October. Also- have gone to Florida and Arizona in the summer heat and they were great vacations. Yellowstone in Sept was awesome.
