Things to do near Austin vacation homes

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.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Austin vacation homes

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.
