Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
Due to its size and variable geographical location, Texas does not have a uniform weather pattern, but rather two. The first is subtropical in the east and southeast. The second is semi-arid and covers the north and west with high heat in summer and negative mercury in winter. With an average temperature of 27°C, March is the hottest month in Texas.
The city of Austin is known for offering very affordable prices. Texas in particular is not necessarily an expensive destination, if we omit the somewhat high cost of hotel nights. On the other hand, the price of food is more attractive, even if for good restaurants it is comparable to that offered in major European cities. To this must be added the price of renting a car or motorhome, which is much more attractive than in Europe.
French citizens travelling to the United States must have a valid passport. No special visa is required. On the other hand, it is imperative to fill in the ESTA form, only available on the website https://fr.usembassy.gov/fr/; then you must pay a fee of US$ 14 and wait for a favourable response, without which, since January 2009, it is impossible to enter the United States. The maximum length of stay may be 90 days.
No special precautions to take. The vaccines required in Texas and the United States are the same as those required in Europe or Canada. On site, beware of heat: glasses, hat, water to avoid sunstroke and dehydration, but also sweaters for some colder parts of Texas in winter. There is no malaria risk in the area. Finally, water is safe to drink in some parts of Texas, but it is often better to bring water bottles or fill your own bottles in water dispensers.
