When to Visit Erie, PA

One of the best times to visit Erie is April and May. By the time April rolls around, most of the snow from winter has melted, and the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold. In April, highs hover in the upper 50s, and by May the highs reach the upper 60s. However, the weather can change quickly from one day to another during these months, so make sure you check the forecast before you leave home, and pack accordingly. Also, keep in mind that peak tourist season starts after Memorial Day, so at that point hotel prices start to go up and crowds of tourists become larger.

June through August is the most popular time to visit Erie, so it's also when hotels raise their rates. If you're trying to get a good hotel deal during these months, you need to book your reservation well in advance of your trip. Temperatures are comfortably warm, with highs typically around the upper 70s and low 80s. However, summer can bring rainstorms to the area, so make sure you pack an umbrella.

Fall is another spectacular time to visit Erie. September and November bring gorgeous orange and red leaves to the trees, and high temperatures are a crisp mid-60s and 70s. If you're interested in enjoying the many outdoor activities around Erie, this is an excellent time to go. However, weather in late September can quickly turn cool, turning rain to snow. If you're planning on visiting during this time, make sure you dress in layers.

If you don't mind snow and frigid winds coming off Lake Erie, you can get some really great hotel deals by visiting from December to March. While you can't enjoy many of the outdoor attractions around Erie during this time, you also won't have to deal with crowds. High temperatures in the daytime usually don't get out of the 30s, and lows at night can dip into the 20s. However, there are many festivals and indoor activities that will keep you busy and entertained during these months.
