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.
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...
