Austin Holidays

Funky town with eccentric roots

A small town with big character, Austin pride itself on weird charm and a hippie soul.

Often referred to as the ‘live music capital of the world’, Austin lets you create your own soundtrack. Explore the Red River District, home to iconic music venues and funky bars, and chill out in Zilker Park where you’ll find meditation trails and numerous gardens. For even more relaxation, head to Barton Springs Pool, believed to have spiritual powers, before playing a round of golf at one of the many clubs.

For more Texan adventure, twin your Austin stay with a trip to nearby Dallas. Or head to Houston where you’ll find vibrant honky-tonks and cowboy culture.
