Consider Austin holiday lettings in the beautiful capital of Texas
The so-called "Music Capital of the World," Austin is renowned for its alternative subculture, perfectly manifested through the "Keep Austin Weird" slogan that appears all over town, on souvenirs and memorabilia. Over the years, the city has continued to attract musicians, writers, politicians, chefs, filmmakers, artists and creatives in general. What's the fuss all about? You're going to have to book an Austin holiday letting to find out!
Getting into Austin
The city is served by the Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), which is a mere 6 miles southeast from downtown Austin. Choose from the handy airport bus MetroAirport, regular taxis, or shuttles to reach the city centre. In addition, chauffeured limousines and luxury sedans will get you to your Austin holiday letting in style, but make sure to book in advance.
The Ideal Climate
The best time to visit Austin is from March to May, and from September to November. This is when a record number of cultural events play out, and the weather is extremely pleasant for the large part. Those planning a holiday between June to September might want to bring along some seriously light summer clothing, loads of sunscreen, flip flops and sunglasses. Austin holiday homes are a perfect way to beat the heat with air conditioning and thoughtful amenities.
The city takes its history very seriously, as can be seen by its well-maintained and frequently-visited museums. The Blanton Museum of Art houses European paintings, as well as modern and contemporary American and Latin American art. The State Capitol building dominates the city's skyline, much to the pride of locals. A visit to the UT Tower at the University of Texas at Austin is recommended for panoramic city views. Locals will be quick to remind you that the stunning pink granite Texas State Capitol building is taller than the one in Washington D.C.
For a more fun and offbeat experience, take the haunted ghost and bat Segway Tour. The classic hop on/hop off double decker tour is perfect to catch Austin's main attractions. After a hard day's sightseeing, unwind with a cool local Texas beer in your Austin holiday home.
Nightlife and Live Music
The Live Music Capital of the World fully lives up to its reputation, as can be seen by the gigs organized across the city all year around. Don't be surprised to see local bands strutting their stuff at the international airport, to the joy of international and local travellers alike.
The Warehouse District and Sixth Street boast a fair number of bars. For local gigs by singer-songwriter musicians, the Cactus Cafe is popular. Next is Antone's, one of the best blues clubs in America, which has served as a launch pad for scores of budding musicians. For a fun night out dancing, the glamorous Club Elysium makes the cut.
Excursions and Activities
There's more to Austin than music and art! Wake up in comfort at one of the many Austin holiday lettings, and then head to Barton Springs in South Austin, Big Stacy Pool, Hamilton Pool, Emma Long Park, or Hippy Hollow, where clothing is optional. Water babies can indulge in kayaking, canoeing and jet skiing at scenic Lake Austin or Lake Travis. Rock-climbing at the cliffs overlooking Barton Creek and biking are fun and adventurous options for the whole family.
How about an evening of bat-watching, anyone? The world's largest urban population of Mexican free-tailed bats camps out at the Congress Avenue Bridge. Join the hundreds of onlookers each day as they behold this stunning spectacle of nature and quiet urban chaos. The non-profit rescue Austin Zoo, a sanctuary to over 100 species, offers an educational, enriching experience.
Regular Annual Avents
Cultural activities take place perennially in Austin, which is good news for the culture enthusiasts. The year kicks off with Black History Month, where various venues commemorate poignant moments in Black history. The Austin Carnival in February brings with it the allure of samba costumes and nightlong parties.
March features the Zilker Park Kite Festival, and the South by Southwest festival which promotes film, music and new media. Soon after is the Star of Texas Fair and Festival and the Austin Fine Arts Festival in April. The Juneteenth festival is the oldest known Afro-American celebration, commemorating the abolishment of slavery. September's annual Austin City Limits Music Festival is a must for lovers of bluegrass, country, folk, indie, Americana, hip-hop and reggae. Those in town for Christmas shoudn't miss the annual Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. With a calendar as chock-a-block as this, it's best to make like a local and enjoy the city from the comfort of an Austin holiday letting .
Austin is city that won't disappoint. Choose an Austin holiday letting as a home base, and come on over!
