Actually, most of those dates in February, March, and September are considered off-season. And even those in late August is considered early off-season. The only exceptions would be for the slight uptick due to college semester break and any holidays.

We were discussing the differences between on-season and off-season a few years ago in another forum and I put this table together to show the price variances, which clearly show when the different on-season periods are. Keep in mind the prices were from several years ago and do not include taxes, so the amounts shown are no longer valid but it does show how the rates fluctuate based on the time of year;
