Any major holidays to avoid during those months?
Purim in JLM is probably something worth seeing, it's only 2 days (one day outside JLM, one day in JLM)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Until you don't know the difference between Trump and Clinton.

Gonna take quite a lot of drinking for that to happen. Even then, CM will still be able to tell them apart.

I was thinking more along the lines of Ivanka being Esther & being a descendant would thus make him Mordechai :)

I think it goes into Shabbos this year, should be fun. Last time we had this schedule there was a DDS Motzi Shabbos.

Pesach is March 30-April 7. Other than around that, March-May should have good weather and shoulder season pricing.
From Rosh Chodesh Nissan until Pesach you'll have litterly no tourists anywhere
