Best Times to Visit San Antonio
The best time to visit San Antonio is from November to April, when the weather is comfortable and the hotel rates are lower. Summer sees the largest influx of tourists from in- and out-of-state. Because of its historical significance to the state and its family-friendly theme parks, San Antonio attracts hordes of Texas families when the kids are on summer break. But the long Texan summer is close to unbearable (for most people) with high humidity and temperatures exceeding 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The masses also make for more crowded attractions and higher prices at hotels. You'll enjoy the city a lot more when you are less damp, saving cash and enjoying the festivals of the winter and spring.

This is San Antonio's busiest and hottest season, with heat-exhausted tourists crowding the city's top attractions and accommodations. Hotel rates will make you sweat even more as they coincide with peaking temperatures (some days may reach above 100 degrees). May, June and October are the wettest months, so pack an umbrella just in case.
