Below are the best locations for a trip from July 16th to July 22nd. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In mid July each of these places are the perfect balance between temperate weather and smaller crowds, which also translates into better deals for tourists.
Because we’ve located areas and times where there is a greater chance for hotels/flights to be under capacity and weather is likely to be temperate and dry, the best time to book these 10 trips is usually within 1-4 weeks before travel.
1. Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon has perfect weather from July 16th to July 22nd. The weather is almost as nice in the weeks before and great in the weeks after. Tourism in the area is somewhat slow during this time. Choosing Lisbon this week is a great choice for anyone looking for nice weather and lower prices.
The graph below shows how temperatures feel given humidity (heat index) and wind chill. Tourist demand is usually the opposite of price: where demand is low prices are too. For Celsius: click the “best time to visit” link below the graphs.

3. Steamboat Springs, CO, US
Due to the average number of tourists, a trip to Steamboat Springs in mid July tends to be neither the least nor the most expensive, but the weather couldn’t be better. This period of ideal weather comes after some similarly enjoyable weather. If booking a longer trip, you’ll want to know that the weather remains nice for the next 30 days. Due to the more remote nature crowds are usually manageable year-round.

4. Norfolk Island, Norfolk Island
As with every place on this list, temperatures in Norfolk Island feel excellent, rain is infrequent, and there are no travel advisories at the moment. Tourists looking for hotels and flights are uncommon during this time, so prices may be lower. Because it’s a little less common of a destination, massive crowds aren’t likely. We could also strongly recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is as good as mid July.
