Peak and off season: When to get the best deal

When it comes to the weather, Dallas is best enjoyed during the balmy months of spring and autumn.

Even when days are unseasonable cool or rainy, there are many indoor activities to enjoy such as the Sixth Floor Museum, the Dallas Aquarium and Dallas Museum of Art. Peak travel times are around major holidays such as Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and for these dates, travel should be booked in advance if possible.
