SUSTAINABILITY
TIPS FOR
TIMING
YOUR TRIP
OFF-PEAK TRAVEL, MIDWEEK
STAYS, AND EVEN EARLY-MORNING
OUTINGS CAN HELP YOU AVOID
THE CROWDS-AND SUPPORT
LOCAL ECONOMIES
3 REASONS
TO TRAVEL
MIDWEEK
Why you should
think beyond the
weekend getaway
WINE COUNTRY
For your best chance at VIP treatment
at Napa Valley and Sonoma County's
top tasting rooms, visit from January to
March. These quieter months are what
the locals call " mustard season, " when the
vineyards are blanketed in brilliant yellow
flowers and a new growing cycle begins.
It's the easiest time of year to score lastminute
tasting reservations.
MOUNTAINS
In destinations like Lake Tahoe, Mammoth
Lakes, and Big Bear, businesses are
often overwhelmed with visitors during
summer and winter. But that's not true in
the shoulder months (March to May and
September to November). Schedule an
off-season trip to help to sustain a yearround
economy. Plus: It's easier to find
hotel deals in October than in January.
1. SAVOR
ALONE TIME
If you want to lounge
solo by a hotel pool
on a balmy afternoon
or have scenic hiking
trails all to yourself,
opt for a Tuesday
instead of Saturday.
2. NAB A SOUGHTAFTER
TABLE
Boost your odds
of getting into a
buzzy restaurant
by requesting a
midweek reservation
for 7:30 p.m.-a nearimpossible
feat on a
Saturday.
NATIONAL PARKS
Want to see a soulful landscape that
most visitors never get to witness?
Visit Yosemite and Sequoia and Kings
Canyon on non-holiday dates from
October-March. It's easier to get lodging
reservations, and you won't bump elbows
at popular overlooks. In Joshua Tree or
Death Valley, schedule a December or
January visit. Winter nights offer amazing
stargazing and cool-weather camping.

BEACHES
California's coastline has dependably
mild weather year-round, so why limit
yourself to summer days at the beach?
Los Angeles and San Diego often see
warm days in February. You'll have the
same brilliant sunshine and soft sand as
in July, but with easier access to parking
and sunset-over-waves vistas. Note: If
getting in the water is a priority, you're
better off sticking to summer.
3. SCORE
HOTEL PERKS
Many hotels offer
discounted rates
Sunday through
Thursday nights,
or they'll throw
in free perks like
complimentary
parking or a free
extra night.
