Best Times to Visit Dallas – Fort Worth

The best time to visit Dallas – Fort Worth is between September and November, when the temperatures aren't overwhelmingly hot, the tourist traffic has died down and the Texas State Fair is in full swing. Although the months between March and May are equally comfortable temperature-wise (and blooming flowers further sweeten the season), the Cowboys football season can drive hotel prices up, especially in the Metroplex areas. Despite temperatures in the 90s and high humidity levels, summer marks Dallas – Fort Worth's high season, so expect hotel costs to climb. You will find deals between December and February, but don't expect exceptionally warm weather. The DFW area experiences all four seasons, with wintertime highs resting in the 50s and low 60s.

June - August

"Stifling," "moist," "oppressive," and "long" are common adjectives for a summer in Dallas and Fort Worth. During these months, temperatures are known to hover in the mid-90s, and high humidity levels keep the climate teetering on the edge of unbearable. Still, summer is the most popular time to visit DFW area, so you can expect room rates to climb alongside the temps. If you do visit during the summer, you can escape the heat by visiting one of the area's museums.

Key Events:

September - November

Autumn marks a sweet spot for DFW tourism: The summer crowds wane and the temperatures drop into the much-more-manageable 70s and 80s. Come November, thermometers will most likely read in the 60s. And with hotels cooling down after the high season, discounts are easier to come by.

Key Events:

December - February

Not many people imagine snow on a Texas landscape; however, the Metroplex usually receives a few days of snowfall each winter. Average daytime highs usually rest in the 50s and 60s, but below-freezing temps aren't unheard of. If you don't mind bundling up, you can save big on a wintertime DFW vacation.

Key Events:

March - May

Like the fall, spring in Dallas – Fort Worth ushers in average highs in the 70s and 80s, along with a lot of rain. But the threat of drizzle doesn't stop football fans from descending on the Metroplex to watch the Dallas Cowboys play. If the team has had a good season, expect hotel prices to be higher and game tickets to be in high demand. If you're not in town to see a game, plan your visit around one of the season's many festivals.
