    Music, cowboys and bats—Austin has all the powers

    Music, cowboys, and fruit bats are just 3 of the highlights of a trip to the Texas State Capitol. Austin is widely regarded as one of the coolest cities in America. Famous as the home of live music show, Austin City Limits, it has a rich nightlife, largely centered around the live music bars of 6th Street. It's also known for its colony of fruit bats which reside under the bridge. Get your Texan adventure off to the right start with a centrally located Austin vacation rental in the heart of the city.

    Bat out of hell—music and bats pretty much sums up Austin

    If you like music, you'll love Austin. Internationally renowned as the live music capital of the world, you can expect to spend vast amounts of your time here listening to live music in bars. But life in Austin doesn't have to only mean beers and a banging bass. You can also go for a paddle on the Lady Bird Lake, or take in a museum or two. As the sun sets, venture down to South Congress Bridge and watch as the city's urban colony of Mexican fruit bats swoop out for their nightly tour. It's an exhilarating experience.

    There's no (city) limits to Austin's attractions

    Book an Austin vacation rental in the heart of Downtown and you'll have the best of the city right on your doorstep. Learn about Texas history at the Bullock Texas State History Museum, which tells the story of Texas through interactive exhibits, shows, and IMAX movies. If the streets get too hot, follow the locals to the cool, spring-fed waters of Barton Springs, a huge natural outdoor swimming pool. Try to time your visit with one of Austin's many music festivals, like Austin City Limits at Zilker Park in September, a highlight of the city's social calendar.

    Austin's hot in the city? Yeah, baby!

    Austin is a year-round destination. But of course, this is Texas, so it can get hot, hot, hot. In the summer, the average temperature is 90 degrees, and with high humidity and the chance of showers, it's probably the time to avoid. The best times to visit the Texas capital is fall and spring, when blue skies and sunshine are a-plenty, and the temperature is a comfortable 75 degrees. This is also when the main festivals are held and Austin vacation rentals can get snapped up in advance.

    Don't go chasing waterfalls—Austin's hiking country

    Perched on the edge of Texas Hill Country, Austin lies between Dallas and San Antonio. There are plenty of ways to escape the city heat for a walk. Head up to Mount Bonnell for the best views of Austin and the Colorado River. If you want to get back to nature, drive 11 miles south to McKinney Falls State Park. Centered around the park's eponymous waterfalls, there are several scenic hiking trails. It's a magnet for the region's wildlife fans, as white-tailed deer, armadillo, and mockingbirds are all found here.
