When to Visit Athens, OH

With four distinct seasons, choosing the best time to visit Athens depends on what you want to see and do while you're visiting. June through August are the most popular months for visitors to come to the area. These summer months have average high temperatures in the upper 70s and lows 80s Fahrenheit. With the pleasant weather, plenty of festivals and events occur during these months. However, keep in mind that hotels can also raise prices during this prime to take advantage of the greater numbers of crowds.

As summer comes to an end, crowds start to thin out and hotel prices begin to drop. September still has average highs in the upper 70s, but by November, these highs are in the low 50s. If you don't mind bringing a coat to deal with slightly cooler weather, late fall is a great time to visit. You can find some attractive deals on hotel prices, and you get to enjoy the fall foliage.

Winter in Athens brings cold temperatures and snow. In fact, from December to February, temperatures hover in the 30s and 40s, and the area receives an average of 19 inches of snowfall for the season. However, if you can handle these conditions, this time of year can allow you to get great hotel deals. While you won't be able to enjoy some of the outdoor attractions, many indoor attractions remain open during the winter.

If you don't like the cold but you still want affordable hotel prices, consider visiting Athens in spring. While average highs in March are still in the low 50s, by May, temperatures have reached the low 70s. Spring is a great season to plan a visit because you get to enjoy the flowers that are starting to bloom. Additionally, spring is when many festivals start returning to the area.
