    Unhappy Peak Season rates after President's Day?

    I'm trying to figure out why the weeks after President's Day are considered to be in Peak season. I understand the days just before Easter and Easter being a higher rate, but why the time in between? The trip I'm trying to put together for February is getting complicated, the first part of the month is not good. Then President's Day hits and the prices go up for a while. I don't know, I think I'm just getting stressed.

    I think schools in some parts of the country have their spring break at this time.

    I dont know when Presidents day is (I'm Canadian) but I know that my university's Reading Week (what we call spring break) is always in February. So ya I would guess that its due to various spring breaks.

    The week of President's Day has traditionally been a vacation week for public schools in Massachusetts at least, along with a week in April (usually after most other spring breaks).

    I think Mardi Gras is usually around this time and Louisiana schools get out for Mardi Gras.

    Re: Peak Season rates after President's Day?

    I read on another site that the crowds tend to be lighter prior to President's week, so why would the beginning of February not be good., as stated in your question?

    Also, here in NH the winter break (February) is usually the week after Massachusetts, so I would think different States may have different weeks.

    Re: Peak Season rates after President's Day?

    The only slow week is the week immediately following the week of Presidents Day. It just may be the slowest week of the year. After that, Spring Break starts to kick in depending upon the school system. I know it's surprising, but there are so many different school schedules. Some schools even take two different Spring breaks.

    Let's say Easter is the first week of April. That means the week before and the week after are going to be really heavy. But if a school system works it differently, then their break could be two weeks off in either direction. So that means beginning the second week of March, breaks start to kick in.
