When should you visit Universal City, TX?

In order to know the best time to visit Universal City, it helps to understand what the weather is like throughout the year. Summer in Universal City is hot and humid.

If you're going to visit during these months, plan your outdoor activities in the morning or early evening when the temperatures are a little cooler. You can also check out some of the fun indoor attractions in the area.

You won't experience much relief from the sweltering temperatures until late fall. In September, average highs are still in the low 90s, and October has highs in the low 80s. November starts to feel more comfortable with highs in the low 70s. If your main goal when traveling to Universal City is to check out the outdoor attractions, this might be the ideal month for your visit. Additionally, since the summer visitors are gone, you'll also start to enjoy lower hotel rates.

In addition to lower hotel rates from December to February, average highs during these months are in the low to mid-60s, which offers some comfortable weather for exploring the area.

However, by April, highs have climbed into the low 80s, and by May, temperatures are in the upper 80s.
