There's plenty to see all year round. Have a look on stellarium to see what's in the best position for you.

What camera and lenses have you got? Do you have a CLS light pollution filter? Roughly, how many stars can you see with the naked eye in your location?

I have horrible light pollution where I live, I can't see much below magnitude 3 and still I manage to get lots of shots of galaxies, nebulae and star clusters etc. Yes, it can be a pain in trying to find objects without a goto mount, but it can be done with patience and practice. Fortunately for me, I recently purchased an EQ3 pro with Synscan and that has definitely made my life easier.

You will be amazed at how much you can pull out if a light polluted wide field image and see

Give it a go and see what you end up with

Any data is better than no data
