Holidays in Austin

Big city, big heart, big adventures

In Austin, you’ll find huge personality, with so many sides to discover. The live music, the art, the outdoorsy adventures, the food and craft beer, the sport, the rise of the tech industry – it's a city buzzing with expectation.

Tuck into some proper barbecue, tour vineyards and try some Texan wine (yes, really), two-step to live music in a genuine Western bar, explore beaches, canyons and mountains, even learn how to be a cowboy on a real ranch. Everything’s bigger in Texas, and that includes the adventures waiting for you.

Welcome to the "Live Music Capital of the World"

Austin is Texas' chilled-out, eccentric capital dubbed 'The Live Music Capital of the World" drawing hotshot music execs and film stars, as much as aspiring artists. If you love the outdoors, Austin is made for you. Blessed with beautiful green open spaces, natural swimming pools and pictoresque hiking trails, this is a city that offers the best of both worlds.

Getting around

Given the distances, travelling by car is all but necessary in Texas, with public transport proving impractical in a state of this size. With such big distances, petrol prices have historically always been lower than the national average.
