Living life right in Austin

The beauty of Austin is that it’s not hard to have an amazing time. From the iconic Franklin BBQ to the live music scene in the South Congress neighborhood, where the SXSW music festival was born, all your senses will be delighted.

The abundance of green space in Austin means it’s easy to get into nature and cool off with a swim, but you can also find even more thrilling adventures outside of the city center.

Austin favorites

Whether you’re more of a lounger or an active outdoorsy type, you’ll find just the right spot to make your trip pop.

Zilker Park

Potentially the most attractive feature of Austin, Zilker Park is home to Lady Bird Lake, excellent hiking and biking, the epic Barton Springs Pool, and iconic festivals like Austin City Limits.

The Continental Club

With six decades of history on this stage, this club is the heart of Austin’s famous music scene, so put on your most respectable dancing shoes and get ready to boogie next to someone famous.

Congress Bridge

You know a city is unpretentious when one of the favorite local activities is gathering at sunset to watch millions — yes, millions — of bats flutter to life and take off from this beautiful Congress Ave bridge.

Hit the road

While there are other big cities in Texas and the United States you can easily get to from Austin, there are plenty of smaller getaways for a quieter time away from the Music Capital.

Jeep Wrangler rental alternative in Austin

Longhorn Cavern

It’s not every day you get to explore underground caves carved out by a river. Make the one-hour drive northwest for a mild walking tour or wild spelunking adventure.

Dripping Springs

Just a 45-minute drive from Austin, Dripping Springs’ name really says it all. Go for a swim in the totally unreal sparkling waters at the natural Hamilton Pool, and peep a historic building or two downtown.

Wimberley

This little town is packed full of Texan specials, including two incredible swimming holes — Blue Hole and Jacob’s Well — and the Bella Vista Olive farm.
