What should I pack?

“Always bring water Hopefully you don't buy plastic water bottles still, but definitely bring water wherever you go. i'd invest in a yeti - b/c they're cool and they stay cold for forever!”

Max

What's the best way to get around?

“Uber/lyft and local favorite ride austin are all easy to catch from our house. Taxi service is less reliable. all very economical since we live so close to austin's main attractions. public transport consists of buses. go to capmetro website if interested in bus routes.”

Robyn

“Getting around -ride sharing would be the best way to get around if you don't have a car. -rent a car? download the park atx app so you can add time to the meter while you're out and about -the nearest metro (local bus) stop is 1.5miles from our hourse”

“Get to know the major street names in south austin. Manchaca, lamar, south congress, ben white (aka hwy 71) and mopac (aka loop 1 north) ---- if you get familiar with where these roads are on the map, you'll have an easy time finding your way around. also, it may be helpful to know "manchaca" is pronounced like "mancheck"”

“If you want to bbq on the porch, go to the food locker for farm fresh beef, pork & bacon.. They close at 6pm sharp..”

Marshall
MarshallLives in Austin

“If you see a tip jar, anywhere, it means the hourly wage is tragically low. please be generous. It's not just service staff. from sandwich-makers to counter clerks ($5/hour), tip jars alert you to the underpaid population of our town. don't forget the musicians!”

Your guide to Austin

Introduction

The Texas capital is a mecca of everything the state does best: inventive cuisine served from its food trucks; live entertainment celebrated at festivals touting music, tech, and extreme sports, and of course the all-essential SXSW; and plenty of outdoor experiences that call for biking, hiking cycling, swimming, bouldering, and kayaking year-round. Downtown Austin is the center of it all, with a thriving arts and shopping scene by day and lively nightlife after the sun sets, especially on Sixth Street and in the Warehouse District. Take a step back in time in South Austin, where beloved restaurants and classic architecture surround the biggest city park. The fast-growing neighborhood of East Austin, an eclectic enclave of food and boutiques, is another great spot to explore.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Austin?

Austin boasts 300 sunny days a year, but there’s no denying that the city sizzles in the summer, with July being the hottest month. Average high temperatures are in the 90s Fahrenheit from June through September, with lows only getting into the 70s. Winter is a far more temperate season, with highs in the upper 50s to low 70s and lows dipping into the upper 30s. Spring and fall are the most pleasant seasons for a vacation, with highs usually in the 70s and 80s and lows in the 50s to 60s. The clearest skies arrive between July and November, with the highest average days of rain in May.


What are the top things to do in Austin?

Texas Capitol

The Texas state house is as grand in stature as the state is in size, earning a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and being declared a National Historic Landmark in 1986. Made of sunset red Texas granite, the three-story capitol building is the largest in the nation — yes, it’s more than 14 feet higher than the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. But the true beauty is in the details, such as the ornate oversized brass door hinges and chandeliers with light bulbs that spell out “T-E-X-A-S.” Take a free half-hour tour or pick up a map to take a self-guided tour.

Congress Avenue Bridge Bats

No bat signal needed! One of the most stunning sights in town is this fascinating natural phenomenon as between 750,000 and 1.5 million bats — the largest urban colony on the continent — fly out from under the Ann Richards Congress Avenue Bridge every night at dusk.

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Founded by Lady Bird Johnson and actress Helen Hayes in 1982, the 284-acre University of Texas at Austin Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is committed to preserving the state’s native plants, with more than 900 species on site. There’s also an arboretum with more than 70 kinds of Texas’ native trees.
