About Austin

Known for its vibrant music, fantastic food, and offbeat culture, Austin is a top destination to visit for fun-loving travelers. Stay off the beaten path at one of the many welcoming Austin vacation homes, and plan a food- and music-filled getaway.

Climate

The Texas capital has a humid subtropical climate, which translates to long, hot summers and brief, mild winters. During the summer months, temperatures often approach 100 degrees, but in the winter months, you can enjoy temperatures in the 60s. The city usually receives the most rain in the late spring and early summer, while July tends to be the driest month.

Transit

As soon as you land at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, you’ll want to pick up a rental car to make sure you don’t miss a single inch of this action-packed city. For those visiting the area without a car, Austin does have a relatively comprehensive rail system and bus network, which both offer convenient options for getting around town during the week. When you’re not pressed for time, enjoy the bike-friendliness of the city as a way to see different parts of Austin. If you plan to stay at one of the more secluded Austin vacation rentals or explore the far reaches of the city, though, you’ll need a car.

Things to Do

Austin has several unique neighborhoods, each one offering something different for visitors to enjoy.

Downtown is the place to be for live music venues, restaurants, and local shopping. Visit the Austin Children’s Museum here and then pop over to see a children’s show at Paramount Theatre, the oldest surviving theater in Austin.

West Austin is home of the Old West Historical District. Made up of three smaller neighborhoods, Old Enfield, Bryker Woods, and Pemberton Heights, this area features many beautiful historic homes. 

East Austin is an artistic neighborhood known for its unique shopping and dining options. In November, the annual self-guided East Austin Studio tour is a great way to learn about local artists.

Outdoor enthusiasts will love Zilker Park, a 351-acre park offering many activities such as the Barton Springs Pool, a natural spring that averages 68 degrees and beckons to swimmers year-round, and the Zilker Zephyr Miniature Train ride for kids. Rent a canoe or kayak for a trip around Town Lake.

Events
