When is the best time to travel to the Grand Canyon?
Our climate charts will give you an idea of the weather conditions of the southwest USA. The majority of the landscape in this region is dry, dusty and rocky, with plenty of sunshine.
Inside the Grand Canyon, temperatures soar during the daytime, so if you want to walk or trek in the Grand Canyon, and some of the other national parks in the southwest, then it is best to visit during spring and autumn when temperatures will be slightly cooler, and avoid the mid-summer. Spring and Autumn also tend to be dry.
The Californian coast is an exception to the normally hot and sunny climes found in the rest of California during the summer months. Temperatures in San Francisco are effected by the cooler air and heavy fog that rolls in off the Pacific Ocean often making it feel distinctly damp and chilly. Skies tend to be clearer here in the spring and autumn than during the peak summer months.
