San Antonio in the Winter

For those looking to avoid the Texan heat, the best time to visit San Antonio would be in the Winter/Spring months - November to April. At this time the weather is comfortable and the hotel rates tend to be lower. San Antonio’s Winter tends to be short and very mild with temperatures ranging from a high of 63 degrees and a low of 41.

January tends to be the coldest month of the year with December being similar with a low of 42. This is a great time to avoid crowds as summer tends to attract hordes of Texan families with their kids on summer break.

Tripshepherd Guide Tip: Something not to miss while visiting in Winter is the holiday festivities that happen along the Riverwalk, so we suggest taking a River Cruise along the water under the beautiful Christmas lights!

San Antonio in the Spring

Along with Winter, Spring is an ideal time to visit San Antonio due to its mild temperatures and lots of exciting events like culinary demos and pop-ups!

The temperatures offer pleasant highs and cool lows averaging with a high of between 71 and 76 degrees Fahrenheit and a low between 48 and 54 degrees Fahrenheit.

The weather in Spring offers travelers the perfect temperature to explore the otherwise sultry city as you are able to enjoy strolls along the San Antonio River and the Alamo among many other outdoor attractions without worrying about the scorching heat.

San Antonio in Summer

For those looking to experience the Texan heat on their vacation, visiting in the Summer is the best time, with temperatures as high as 90 degrees Fahrenheit. For those brave enough to withstand the heat you can experience one (or a few) of the many exciting events like Fiesta San Antonio and Saturday Night Rodeos.

And when you are looking to cool off there are many indoor attractions to check out, like The Tower of the Americas where you can marvel at the breathtaking view of the city and view stunning pieces of art at the McNay Art Museum

Another great way to explore the city in the Summer is with Tripshepherd on one of our tours like our Best of San Antonio Tour where you will see the very best of the city both by walking through these attractions but also by driving by in the style and comfort of one of our air-conditioned Mercedes Metris vans.

Complimentary downtown hotel drop off & pick up are also included along with all admission fees and skip the ticket line entry—no waiting in line in the blistering heat! 

Tripshepherd Guide Tip: Make sure you bring lots of sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses!

San Antonio in Fall

In the Fall visitors can immerse themselves in the history and culture of the city in beautiful temperatures that offer both excitement and relaxation. With temperatures as high as 80 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as 62.4 degrees, making it is ideal to walk around one of the beautiful parks to admire the stunning fall atmosphere.

While here you can enjoy world-class exhibits within cultural institutions and also experience some fun-filled Halloween events!
