Weatherwise the best time to visit Death Valley is Spring (February to April) and Fall (Ocotber to November). This is when the temperatures are not as crazy as in summer with highs from 75°F (23°C) to 93°F (34°C). In spring you can enjoy wildflowers due to the rain during winter. In fall you will have clear skies and distant views with fewer tourists. Winter brings along chilly nights (39°F-46°F/4°C-8°C) but spectacular views of the valley with snowy peaks. If you want the full on desert experience come between May and September when temperatures reach 100°F (40°C) and more and exprience the shimmering heat. Not as many visitors dare to visit Death Valley then.
