Dion Pllana, Global Travel Trends Analyst recommends travelling off-season, saying the US has lots to offer all throughout the year.

In order to avoid crowded places and not miss the opportunity to see the best attractions due to overtourism, off-season travel is the answer. Times Square is beautiful throughout the year and the temperature differences in Honolulu during winter and summer months are minor. There are thousands of attractions in 50 states to explore, from New Year’s Eve to the next Christmas party.
