Winter holidays are also high season and can be crowded too.

During June and September, less crowded and better yet not overly cheaper rates.

Low season falls during late fall and spans all winter (November through March) -excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas ⁄ New Year holidays. Harsh freezing weather is not good for Route 66 Road Trips though.

Mid season with nicer weather and fewer crowds and also mid value rates falls during two distinct periods: April through May and September through October (clear weather in Fall).
