When to Go

Texas feels even bigger in the summer, when visitors and outdoor festivals swell to a fever pitch. During the fall, the weather is still warm enough for all sorts of outdoor activities, and cool enough to enjoy every single one of them. Spring blooms with excitement and spring break. While summer temperatures can head into the 90s F, the rest of the year sees more reasonable daytime temperatures, ranging from the mid-60s to the mid-80s.
