When is the best time to visit Dallas?
June to August
June to August is peak summer season in Dallas. The days are long and humidity levels are high. If you're buying flights to Dallas over these two months, you can escape the heat by scheduling in visits to the city's many museums. You'll also want to book your tickets to Dallas in advance. Despite the heat, summertime is one of the most popular times to visit the city.
September to November
If you'd rather have cooler temperatures for your trip, look out for deals on airfare to Dallas over autumn. From September to November, the weather starts to cool down and the crowds thin out. Travelling over low season means you might have an easier time finding discounts on return flights to Dallas, and outdoor activities can be done in the less stifling temperatures.
December to February
During the winter season, temperatures in Dallas drop to an average of 18°C during the day. However, when packing for your flights to Dallas, it’s wise to pack as though you’re preparing to experience two different seasons. It might be brisk enough for a jacket one day, and then so hot the next that you want to wear shorts. There are also several events happening in winter that you might be tempted to plan your flights around, including the Lights All Night Festival.
March to May
March to May is springtime in Dallas. It's a shoulder season and a good time to buy return flights to Dallas if you want mild weather and small crowds at top attractions.
