It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Galveston

Peak Season: March to September

It doesn’t much matter that this is Texas and it’s the hottest time of the year (temperatures average in the mid-80s) – there’s a beach! Crowds flock to the town as soon as kids get out of school for the summer.

Off Season: October to February

With the exception of Mardi Gras in late-January and early-February, the winter (with average temperatures in the 60s) is the slowest period in Galveston. The best deals on Caribbean cruises can be had in early January and in October and November.

Sweet Spot: None

In a state of extremes, it’s no surprise that Galveston lacks a true shoulder season – it is either incredibly busy or incredibly calm.
