When To Visit Philly

Philadelphia is great in almost any season, but you may want to plan your trip accordingly to avoid getting stuck in inclement weather. While the winter season, from November to February offers autumnal beauty that turns into festive decorations and wintery scenes, your trip could be impacted by the Northeast's more harsh winter. April to May offers the best opportunity for sightseeing when the sun is out again but the humidity and high temperatures are still at bay, though you may have to contend with more touristy crowds. In September the city comes alive with a large Fringe Festival bringing out performers, theater, art, food, and other entertainment.
