Texas Hill Country

Jason Varney
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 Texas Hill Country

Peak Season: March to May; September to November

Fall and spring produce the best weather in Hill Country (average temperatures in the 70s) and therefore attract the most visitors. October also marks the onset of regional events like the Texas Wine Month Trail and the Gruene Music and Wine Festival, making it a great time to experience a most festive side of Texas.

Off Season: June to August

Sweltering Texas heat, with temperatures in the 90s, deter many tourists in the summer months, although weekends can still be busy. Visitors who sweat it out, though, will be rewarded with perfectly ripe Hill Country peaches, in season through the beginning of August. 

Sweet Spot: December to February

Though winters are by no means cold, temperatures in the 50s and 60s tend to keep the hordes away. Visit Fredericksburg’s historic shopping district in December for unique Christmas gifts, or head to a romantic B&B come February at discounted rates.
