When to Go

Peak Season: February to April, September to November

Spring and autumn are the best times to visit. Temperatures hover in the 70s and 80s and events like South by Southwest, Austin City Limits Music Festival, and the University of Texas home football games are in full swing. Hotel prices are at their peak as well.

Off Season: July to August, December to January

Sweltering summers see temperatures pushing past 100 degrees. Luckily there are plenty of green spaces and swimming holes to cool off in.

Value Season: May to June

Get the best bang for your buck in late spring and early summer—the weather is pleasant, UT students are heading home, and hotel prices are gentle.
