I am looking at an early October visit. Is weather pretty good typically?

Also, is fall bike week a big deal if staying near boardwalk?

1. Re: October

Early October is a GREAT time to visit. The air temperatures should be around 70's to lower 80's, the outdoor pools should be heated if to cool. The ocean may be a little chilly but could be manageable still to get in.

You will see and hear bike's but other than that, not really to big of a deal.

All of October is a great time to visit. We went the last week in October and had perfect sunny weather.

We have traveled to MB in March, May and October for many years. Only encountered one bad year in October (Matthew). Saying that, and we didn’t evacuate, it is probably the best time of year to visit! Enjoy your trip and the beach!

We normally are there every first week in October.

Normally 70s and 80s

It can be chilly in the 50s and 60s, but in 2019 we hit 100, but it's always pretty.

We go every year the first week of Oct. It's our fave time to go. The weather is usually really nice...warm and sunny but not unbearably hot. Cooler evenings. Have had to dodge a few hurricanes though.
