Discover Austin

It's easy to understand why people love Austin. Even though the city's population hovers close to one-million people, Austin maintains a home-town appeal. The neighborhood artisans and local businesses help Keep Austin Strange, but the city's slogan represents more than the name suggests. Each year, the friendly faces and caring community are what rank Austin as one of the country's best cities for a vacation or staycation.

The best time of year to visit Austin and rent an RV is between March through May, and September through October when the humidity is low. During the spring, people converge in Austin for bluebonnet season and South by Southwest (SXSW) while the fall is prime season for festivals and college football.

Austin is known as the live music capital of the world. It's possible to hear the sounds of a steel or bass guitar echoing through the city on any given day, and whether you come to Austin to rock out — or camp out — you will find a healthy mix of culture and recreation no matter what part of the city you visit.

Things to Do in Austin

Things to Do in Austin

Is your family adventurous? Explore the wilder side of Austin at Lake Travis Waterloo and Zipline Adventures. When you are ready to spark your curiosity, visit the Austin Nature & Science Center, a free museum located in the heart of Austin. Although the city has public parking, most of the lots don't accommodate oversized vehicles, so it's best to leave your RV at the campground.

Austin is one of the fittest cities in the country. Miles of hiking and biking trails weave through the city, passing by some of Austin's most notable landmarks. The Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail and the Barton Creek Greenbelt make it easy to explore Austin on a bike or foot. On warmer days, don't forget to pack your bathing suit! Several of the trails connect to spring-filled swimming holes like Barton Springs and Campbell's Hole. To paddle, visit one of Austin's stand up paddleboard, kayak, and pedal boat rental shops.

Did you know that Austin is home to North America's largest urban bat population? At sunset, between March and early fall, people line the streets and waterways near the Congress Avenue Bridge, hoping to see approximately 1.5 million bats emerge from their cave. The best free viewing area is located along the bridge and near the southeast corner of Congress Bridge and Lady Bird Lake. If you arrive early, you can snag a prime bat-watching spot. To avoid the crowds, why not watch the bats from the water instead of the bridge? Several companies rent kayaks or sell riverboat tickets as part of a bat-viewing tour.

Austin's biggest draw is the flourishing music scene. When you are not in town for a concert or musical experience like SXSW, visit other prominent music attractions like Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater or the Texas Music Museum. For a free activity, take part in a music-themed scavenger hunt to try and locate the bronze Willie Nelson statue or other music-themed public art installations.

Are you a foodie? Austin's food scene is almost as popular as its music. Austin has everything from craft beer to breakfast tacos. To make the most out of your RV rental, why not take a bit of Austin back to your campground each night? Nothing spruces up hot dogs cooked over a fire like a nice cold craft beer!

Now, it's time to focus on the kind of camping experience you hope to have. Do you want to park your rig within city limits and visit some of Austin's most popular attractions, or would you prefer to find a campground where you can set up camp and enjoy some downtime?

McKinney Falls State Park, known for its hiking trails and waterfalls, will provide you with a peaceful retreat to set up your campervan, travel trailer, or motorhome. Each site has water, electricity, and a picnic table. The park is minutes away from the airport and close to several of Austin's top-rated restaurants and craft breweries. McKinney Falls State Park is one of Austin's best campgrounds for outdoor recreation and proximity to city activities.

Families looking for a luxury RV resort in Austin that welcomes guests of all ages should consider staying at La Hacienda RV Resort. The large, tree-lined sites fit most motorhomes and RVs.

Are you planning a day trip to Belton Lake or Magnolia Market at the Silos? Instead of staying in the heart of Austin, why not find an RV park located north of the city? Valley View RV Park is located between Austin and Waco, directly off the interstate. The park has large, pull-through sites, full hookups, and most of all, a convenient location.
