From its sporting events and world-class museums to an ever-growing roster of restaurants and luxury hotels, Dallas is one of those destinations that can confidently — and accurately — claim it has something for everyone. That also means, like most large cities, it has a variety of reasons to visit all year round. Still, there are better times to explore Dallas than others, and we asked a couple of locals to give us the lowdown.   

“I don’t believe there is any time [to] avoid Dallas, but most of the time weather is the biggest deterrent,” JonPaul Barnes, chef concierge at The Joule , tells Travel + Leisure . Yes, summer gets hot, with temperatures regularly reaching the mid-90s, and the winter months are considered chilly — at least if you ask a Texan. Weather aside, Barnes says there’s still magic to be found during these seasons: “As a Dallas resident… the summer and the holidays are my favorite times of the year in Dallas.”

If you’d prefer to bypass the sweltering heat or a nip in the air, book your trip during the fall. “October is truly the sweet spot to visit, as the weather is perfect, all of the sports teams are playing, and the State Fair of Texas is rocking Fair Park and putting the entire city in a great mood,” says Jonathan Thompson , the Dallas-based host of Adventure Cities on Discovery.

  • High Season: Dallas doesn’t have a specific high season, but it’s common for waves of tourism to occur from March through October.
  • Shoulder Season: Early spring and late fall can be considered shoulder seasons in Dallas, although this can shift based on weather and large events.
  • Low Season : December to February.

JonPaul Barnes is the chef concierge at The Joule, voted one of the top hotels in Dallas-Fort Worth by T+L readers in 2023. 

Jonathan Thompson is a Dallas resident, travel journalist, and the host of Adventure Cities on Discovery.

If a trip to the Lone Star State is in your future, read on to discover the best times to visit Dallas for fewer crowds, lower prices, and more.

To avoid the crowds, you’ll want to check the city’s calendar of events. Generally, the fall tends to attract a large number of travelers, due to the “incredible weather, events like the Texas State Fair, and, most importantly, Cowboys football resuming,” says Barnes. Thompson echoes his sentiment, noting that you’re more likely to run into highway traffic, busy restaurants, and longer lines “on big game days, usually when the Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars, or Dallas Cowboys are at home.” 

That said, consider the winter for a trip with smaller crowds. “Dallas is probably the least crowded during the winter months, which are December, January, and February,” says Barnes. “We've had quite a few bad ice storms the last few years, so guests do not want to get caught in those.”

Unsurprisingly, Dallas experiences its best weather in the spring and fall. “March to May and September to October are the best months when the weather is beautiful,” says Thompson. Barnes highlights October, in particular, sharing how travelers can “enjoy not sweating from Texas' sweltering summer temperatures while still being able to wear shorts.” This mild, enjoyable weather arrives in parallel with outdoor events like Dallas Blooms and Autumn at the Arboretum .

To find better offers on Dallas hotels, your best bet is to travel in the wintertime — and check the calendar before booking. “Prices fluctuate as they are based on occupancy levels,” says Barnes, so you may want to avoid booking your trip over a popular weekend. Nightly rates do, however, “tend to be lower toward the end of the year due to lower occupancy.”

It’s also important to note that Dallas’ incredible access to cities around the world provides a bit of flexibility when it comes to saving money on travel. “We're lucky to have two big airports here  and to be a hub for both American Airlines and Southwest Airlines,” says Thompson, “so there are always great deals to be had when you're planning a visit to Dallas.”

You won’t grow bored in Dallas, especially if you’re a fan of sports, art, and food. “There are a lot of events in the DFW metro, from professional sports teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, and Dallas Stars to major music artists and festivals like the Texas State Fair,” says Barnes. The best time to visit for these types of events varies depending on what you’re interested in. 

The NFL, NBA, and NHL schedules vary, but games typically start in the fall and go into early spring (the NHL and NBA regular seasons run until April). Once winter comes to an end, the Dallas International Film Festival and Dallas Arts Month encourage both locals and visitors alike to take the town, and Dallas Pride and Taste of Dallas mark the calendar in June. As mentioned above, the State Fair of Texas , held from late September to mid-October, is one of the biggest events of the year.

Worst Times to Visit 

Is there a bad time to visit Dallas? It depends on who you ask. “Three of the best reasons to visit Dallas are shopping, sports, and the incredible restaurant scene we have here, and none of those are weather dependent,” explains Thompson, “so I'd say all 12 months are great times to lean into the Big D.” If you do come in the summer, though, be ready for the heat. There’s a good chance you’ll be spending most of your time in air-conditioned spaces, but you’ll still want to have sunscreen, breathable fabrics, and sunglasses on hand as you navigate between restaurants and tourist attractions.

The Best Time to Visit Dallas

best time to visit dallas texas

Dallas enjoys a fairly mild climate year-round although the high summer heats and rainy winters make spring and fall the best times to visit. In July and August, temperatures stay in the 90s and 100s degrees fahrenheit, and everything, from the gleaming skyscrapers to the sidewalks, radiates heat. January and February aren’t the best months to visit, either. Though winter in Dallas is relatively pleasant compared to other parts of the country, winter storms tend to bring freezing rain, and snow isn’t uncommon.

From March to May, temperatures are lovely—the highs range from the upper 80s to mid-60s degrees Fahrenheit—and you’ll get to see all the wildflowers (including the bluebonnets!) in bloom. And in the fall, from September to November, the air is crisp, the summer crowds have begun to die down, and temperatures are typically in the 70s and 80s degrees Fahrenheit.

The Weather in Dallas

Generally, the weather in Dallas is agreeable, save for a few months out of the year (July, August, January, and February). Temperature, precipitation, and humidity levels do vary from season to season—unlike other parts of Texas, Dallas has four distinct seasons. Fall and spring are pleasant, summers are hot and humid, and winters are mild (though an occasional winter storm is to be expected). November, January, and February are the months with the lowest chances of significant precipitation, while May is the wettest month.

Dallas in the spring is idyllic. It’s a radical shift from the bleak, gray winter months; temperatures are mild, and visitors can take advantage of the lush vegetation and gorgeous blooms in the parks. Temperatures usually stay in the 70s and 80s, although the weather can be wet and volatile, with thunderstorms and precipitation peaking in May.  

Events to Check Out:

  • Dallas Blooms , the biggest floral festival in the Southwest, is held throughout the spring at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.
  • Deep Ellum Arts Festival is held every April. Six blocks of Main Street in the Deep Ellum district are transformed into a huge, lively festival featuring hundreds of local musicians and fine artists. 

If you’re visiting Dallas in the summertime, be sure to bring sunglasses, a sun hat, and your strongest sunblock. Summers are long, hot, humid, and oppressive, especially in July and August. Especially in August, you can expect several days of 100-degree heat (or more) and little to no rain. This is also the time of year when kids are out of school, so it’s also when tourists tend to flock to the DFW area. Expect attractions to be busy and hotel prices to be more expensive than they normally are, so be sure to book accommodations and activities in advance.  

Events to check out:

  • Taste of Dallas is a weekend for foodies in June featuring hundreds of chefs, restaurants, and sponsors.
  • Taste Texas barbecue and see rodeo at the nine-day North Texas Fair & Rodeo in nearby Denton during August.
  • See performances from local and traveling Jazz musicians at the three-day Riverfront Jazz Festival in late August.  

Fall is a magical time in Dallas; the intense heat of the summer is gone, temperatures are comfortable, and storms are less likely than in springtime. Between late September and early December, expect temperatures in the 70s and 80s degrees Fahrenheit. Although tourist activity has usually died down by now, note that football season can drive up hotel prices on select weekends. 

  • State Fair of Texas is a huge part of Texan culture; it’s held every year at Fair Park in Dallas. Festivities begin the last Friday of September and run for a full 24 days.
  • The Dallas Arboretum hosts “ Autumn at the Arboretum , ” an annual fest featuring wildly creative displays using more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash.   

Dallas winters are mild compared to the Northeast—daytime highs can reach the mid-60s Fahrenheit in December. But it’s still cold, and freezing rain is a fairly common occurrence. The Dallas-Fort Worth area usually has a few days of snowfall per year, as well. If you don’t mind bundling up, though, this is the cheapest time to visit Dallas.   

  • Catch the 12 Days of Christmas outdoor exhibit at The Arboretum from early November through the end of December.
  • Head to Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Over Texas to add some thrill to your holiday plans from mid-November through December 30.
  • Attend the Holiday Show and Tree Lighting at Klyde Warren Park.
  • Check out the Annual Candlelight at the Dallas Heritage Village in December. 

The best time to visit Dallas is either in the spring or fall, when the weather is much more mild and less rainy. From September to November, you can even see the famous Texas bluebells in bloom.

Dallas winters are known for their freezing rain, but on average May is the rainiest month, typically getting 4 inches of rain on average.

August is the hottest month in Dallas with an average high temperature of 96 degrees Fahrenheit (36 degrees Celsius) and an average low temperature of 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius).

Here's everything you need to know about the best time to travel to Dallas © Ultima_Gaina / Getty Images

With four seasons, a long multi-cultural history, and a sprawling metroplex, there's a lot to see and do in Dallas year round. But when you go can depend on how much you want to spend, what festivals you're hoping to experience, and the degree of tolerance you have for the high heat and humidity that settle on the city during the summer months.

Wondering when is the best time to visit Dallas? Here's the skinny on the high (temperatures), the low (seasons), and the month-by-months.

High season is the best time for air conditioned escapes (June to August)

Dallas, Texas, USA. The Wild Detectives, West Eighth Street, Dallas, Texas, Stati Uniti

Dallas may be hot in the summertime, but that's still when people have PTO to burn and the kids are out of school. Expect higher hotel prices during the summer, and extra competition for the beer garden seats in front of the fans and sprayers. Take advantage of Dallas' love affair with air conditioning by ducking into shops, restaurants, bars, museums, and live music venues.

Shoulder season is the best time for getting outside (March to May, September to November)

Dale Chihuly at the Dallas Arboretum, Dallas, USA,

With cooler, dryer temperatures, spring and fall are prime time in Dallas for enjoying the city's parks, food trucks, pedestrian trails, and patios. Visit in these seasons and you'll have a chance to, say, jog your way to the Katy Trail Icehouse without soaking in sweat or take in the skyline from Trinity Groves without the heat shimmering on the horizon.

Low season is the best time for beating the crowds (November to March)

With hotel prices at their lowest and the crowds thinned out in popular spots like Dealey Plaza, you'll really have some elbow room in The Big D. You won't have to fight the heat and humidity, either, but you may want to pack some cozy layers – it can still get chilly in Dallas, and even get genuinely cold if 2021's devastating snow and ice storm is any indication.

Fair Park Art Deco

Head to a film festival for the whole family in January

Dallas eases into the New Year with dry weather and a parade honoring Martin Luther King Jr. that culminates in festivities at the African American Museum on the grounds of Fair Park. Also on deck is the KidFilm Festival, the oldest and (and the biggest, this is Texas after all) all-ages film festival in the country.

Key Events:  MLK Parade, KidFilm Festival

Celebrate Mardi Gras in February

Dallas is balanced geographically between the Gulf states and the southwest, so it's maybe not surprising that The Big D takes a cue from its eastern neighbors and has its own Mardi Gras celebration every February featuring live country music at the Historic State Fairgrounds. 

Key Events:  Dallas Blooms, West End Mardi Gras

Irish traditional dancing

March celebrates the Irish American community

Since 1983, March has been all about honoring the Irish American community in North Texas, which itself dates back to the 1700s. The Irish Festival involves Celtic music, traditional dancing, and even some horse shows – this is Texas after all.

Key Events:  North Texas Irish Festival, St. Patrick's Day Parade

April is for art festivals 

The prime spring weather – still relatively cool and dry – is perfect for festivals and happenings. Cue Dallas Arts Month, a full slate of gallery showings, art talks, and even true crime theater experiences. Next up is Deep Ellum Arts Fest. What started as a small neighborhood block party has turned into a major event with 100 original bands and singer-songwriters rocking out from 5 stages, a juried arts show, street performances, and food trucks galore.

Key Events:  Dallas Arts Month, Deep Ellum Arts Fest

May is full of outdoor festivals

As the weather starts to warm up, Texans turn to indoor events like the International Film Festival or savor the last of the spring weather in Richardson at Cottonwood Arts Festival. What started as a little hippie happening in 1969 has since evolved into a serious juried art show that features over 200 works of art as well as hands-on activities for kids and families.

Key Events:  Dallas International Film Festival, Cottonwood Arts Festival

Bring an appetite in June

Things start to heat up with Taste of Dallas, a beloved celebration of the city's restaurant scene. Reunion Tower (that's the big disco lollypop on the skyline) hosts parties in the park at the base of the building, complete with live music, lawn games, and plenty of cold beer. Best of all, Juneteenth on the 19th commemorates the day the last slaves in Texas learned they had been freed by the Emancipation Proclamation two years earlier. The MLK Community Center, The University of Texas at Dallas Multicultural Center, and African American museum are just a few of the institutions who put on celebratory events.

Key Events:  Taste of Dallas, Juneteenth, Reunion Lawn Party

Watch the fireworks in July

Since 1972, Dallas has had its own Shakespeare company. Every summer, they present live productions at the Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre in East Dallas. Also in July, Fair Park puts on a big celebration for the Fourth, with water shows, fireworks, food trucks, and more.

Key Events:  Shakespeare Festival, Fair Park Fourth

September is all about state fairs 

It should be no surprise that Dallas hosts one of the biggest, longest state fairs in the country, one chock full of Lone Star culture, from ranching and livestock events to the museums of Fair Park throwing their doors open to educate fairgoers on Hispanic and Black culture in Texas.

Key Events:  Dallas Pride, Texas State Fair, Dallas Jazz Fest

Attend a football game in October

The Dallas Cowboys aren't the only team in this football-loving town that get a standing ovation. Every October since 1900 the Cotton Bowl inside Fair Park fills up with fans of the Sooners of the University of Oklahoma in Norman and the Longhorns of the University of Texas at Austin. They go toe-to-toe for a gold ten-gallon hat, natch, and the rivalry runs deep. If sports isn't your thing, the Stevie Ray Vaughn concert celebrates one of Dallas' best-beloved sons, the legendary blues musician who grew up in the Oak Cliff neighborhood. He's honored every year with a memorial concert and other festivities.

Key Events:  The Red River Showdown, Stevie Ray Vaughn Remembrance Concert

December is the season to be merry

December is a great month to take to the streets for epic runs and holiday fun, making the low season lively as the year winds down.

Key Events:  Dallas Holiday Parade, BMW Dallas Marathon

Why Go To Dallas

All eyes were on Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as his motorcade drove through Dealey Plaza . While a visit to this famous site, which also serves as the birthplace of Dallas, should be at the top of every traveler's must-see list, that's not all the Big D has to offer visitors. Those in search of family-friendly to-dos should add the Dallas World Aquarium , the Dallas Zoo and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science to their itineraries, while culture hounds explore the Dallas Art Museum , Deep Ellum and the Crow Museum of Asian Art .

If you're looking for a quintessentially Texan experience, Dallas offers that too. Whether you're in town for a Dallas Cowboys home game at AT&T Stadium , the annual State Fair of Texas, or simply hoping to enjoy some tasty barbecue or Tex-Mex, you'll find it all in Dallas.

Dallas Travel Tips

Best months to visit.

The best time to visit Dallas is between September and November, when the temperatures aren't overwhelmingly hot, the tourist traffic has died down and the State Fair of Texas is in full swing. Keep in mind: The Cowboys football season can drive hotel prices up, especially in the Metroplex areas (neighborhoods around Dallas and Fort Worth). Avoid inflated prices by taking a look at the team's home game schedule. The months between March and May are equally comfortable temperature-wise, and blooming flowers further sweeten the season. Despite temperatures in the 90s and high humidity levels, summer marks the high season in Dallas, 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.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

What You Need to Know

Texas on display The  State Fair of Texas draws millions of attendees each year with the promise of the best barbecues, best rodeos and best displays of Texan pride. Plan your trip for late September or October to join in.

Beat the heat along the Margarita Mile Did you know the frozen margarita machine was invented in Dallas? Sample some of the city's best along the Margarita Mile, a seasonal, self-guided tour featuring a variety of margaritas at restaurants all over Dallas. Start your journey with this guide from Visit Dallas.

Shop till you drop Dallas is considered a shopper's paradise. Head to Highland Park Village , NorthPark Center or the Galleria Dallas if you're on the hunt for luxury goods. If you'd rather peruse small local shops, head to neighborhoods like the Design District or Deep Ellum .

How to Save Money in Dallas

Purchase a CityPASS Save some money on admission fees by investing in a Dallas CityPASS. For one price, you'll gain entrance to some of the city's top attractions , including the Perot Museum of Nature and Science and the George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum , among others.

Make the most of the city's free activities Several of the top things to do in Dallas do not charge an entrance fee, including the Dallas Arts Museum , the Crow Museum of Asian Art , Pioneer Plaza and Klyde Warren Park , among others.

Take advantage of deals and discounts Visit Dallas compiles a list of deals and discounts on its website for everything from happy hour specials to admission tickets.

What to Eat

One thing is for sure: You definitely won't go hungry in Dallas. With big business comes big appetites, and this city knows how to satisfy them.

The DFW Metroplex is known for red meat and Tex-Mex. For a prime cut, head to  Al Biernat's  on the northeast edge of Dallas' Oak Lawn district. You'll spend a pretty penny to eat here, but avid foodies swear the steak is worth the price. Town Hearth , another popular steakhouse, also receives rave reviews. For authentic Mexican flavors, heed the advice of locals and head to Beto & Son , El Fenix or El Come Taco . For even more Tex-Mex, sign up for one of the best food tours in Dallas .

If you want to expand your palette beyond steak and tacos, Dallas has you covered there, too. Thanks to the metro area's large immigrant population (the city estimates that about 25% of its residents are immigrants), Dallas offers a varied roster of dining styles reflective of its multicultural residents. You can find most everything your stomach desires, from Mediterranean cuisine (try Baboush ) to Jamaican favorites (locals recommend The Island Spot ). Armoury D.E. , which is known for its Hungarian menu and live music, and Boulevardier , a French spot in the Bishop Arts District that's serves a popular brunch, are also recommended by locals.

To sink your teeth into some authentic barbecue, try Pecan Lodge , Off the Bone Barbeque or Lockhart Smokehouse .

Although Dallas is a safe places for tourists, you should exercise caution as you would in any other large metro area. Don't walk alone at night and avoid dimly lit areas. Although gun control laws are less strict in Texas than they are in other parts of the country, tourists are generally not the targets of gun-related violence.

Those who are not used to Texas' climate should take precautions against heat stroke, the symptoms of which generally include headache, dizziness, fatigue and sometimes nausea. Drink plenty of water and apply sunscreen regularly. A hat is another good idea.

Getting Around Dallas

The best way to get around Dallas is by car. Though many of the city's top things to do , such as The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza , the Dallas Museum of Art and Reunion Tower , are located within the downtown area and easily accessible via public transit, a few attractions, such as the Dallas Arboretum , are best reached by car. Just be prepared for heavy traffic during rush hour and limited parking no matter the hour.

There are two airports in Dallas: Dallas Love Field (DAL), which is located about 6 miles northwest of downtown Dallas, and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), which is about 20 miles northwest of downtown. Dallas Love Field only services three airlines: Alaska, Delta and Southwest, so you may find more flight options by flying into Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, which welcomes flights from United, American, JetBlue and others. Taxi fares from Dallas Love Field cost between $18 and $21, while fares from DFW cost between $37 and $45. Both airports are also serviced by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).
