Plus, seasonal festivals and concerts start to pop up throughout the city. Keep in mind that summer is peak tourist season in Paris, so expect crowds and higher rates for accommodations.

    If you don't mind not being able to access certain parts of the park (such as the Going-to-the-Sun Road), you could save loads if you visit in June. During this time, lodging rates are much lower than the rest of the summer months, and you won't run the risk of getting overheated while hiking the Iceberg Lake Trail or the Highline Trail since high temps hover in the low 70s.
