If you’re looking for the perfect time of year to host your next event in the US, you’re in luck. There’s no off-season. From desert wildlife safaris to urban food truck tours, unique experiences in any month are plentiful across America.

Our president John Williams explains, “We have 50 diverse states that welcome all languages, cultures and desired experiences. There are thousands of ways to have fun.”

He adds, “Because the meetings and incentives industry continues its rapid growth, so does demand for more creative ideas year round,” Here’s a roundup of seasonal selections to start planning.

Spring Flings

Cherry blossom season is synonymous with springtime in Washington, DC, where history comes alive. Starting in March, Charleston’s Southern charm is in full bloom, creating a postcard backdrop to explore its iconic architecture, rich history and gracious hospitality. Post Mardi Gras and pre-summer is a delightful time to hit New Orleans, with its timeless blend of world-famous cuisine, lively festivals, and mild weather. The great outdoors are the lure of sunny Tucson and Scottsdale, Arizona, where cool mountains and warm deserts offer plenty of group diversions.

Summer Standouts

Take advantage of the long days of summer from coast to coast. From the dude ranches of Wyoming and Yosemite, Montana, to the social scene of the Hamptons and Long Island’s North Fork, the options heat up from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Don’t overlook Colorado’s spectacular mountain towns. In Steamboat Springs, CO, the Wild West is alive with its annual Hot Air Balloon Rodeo. While white water rafting, kayaking and hiking offer group thrills in beautiful Aspen, CO. For city standouts, Chicago and Milwaukee, host fun events all summer long.

Autumn Adventures

With dozens of food, music and arts festivals every fall, Austin, Texas is a natural draw. Get out on the water in scenic Seattle, to explore the nearby islands by day and feast on the Waterfront’s freshest seafood at night. Fall foliage is a great time to discover New York’s historic Hudson Valley, a hidden gem of rolling hills, wineries, breweries, and orchards. From the Freedom Trail to the Samuel Adams Brewery, Boston’s rich heritage is even more vibrant in fall colors.

Winter Escapes

You can still do it all in winter. Take advantage of seasonal price dips in New York City, while still enjoying all of The Big Apple’s dazzling food and entertainment. To escape the chill, Hawaii’s Big Island and nearby Maui offer the ultimate tropical paradise. Temperate San Francisco is a crowd-pleaser year-round, but in winter months add whale watching to your list. And San Diego always pleases with it near perfect weather and outdoor living.
