Tip# 1: Choose The Best Season:

If you wanna enjoy all the perks of Austin, visit in the spring season. The humidity & temperature may get fall in the winter season, but there is no extreme or unbearable cold here. To escape the scorching heat of the sun don’t visit in the summers.

Tip# 3: Don’t Visit at Festival’s Time.

Don’t visit Austin at the time of festivals or any celebrations. Unless you’re especially planning a trip to celebrate the festival in Austin. The reason is that at the time of festivals the price rates of the hotels reach their peak and also there are fewer chances of availability of bookings because Austin is not a very large or a spacious city so it makes a little mess and increases prices of everything.


Tip# 4: Don’t Forget To Do The Free Fun Activities:

Don’t forget to save your money for other major fun, you can visit many fun places or you can experience so many fun activities for free in Austin, for example, you can visit lady bird lake, where you can enjoy the greenery of the parks and it’s a perfect place to experience hiking, bike riding and running.

You can also visit mount Bonnel Park which is approx. 800ft over Austin, so here you can enjoy the beautiful view of the city. You can also visit for bat tours at Congress Avenue where almost 1.5 million bats stay. It’s only 3 min away from the hotel Zaza Austin.
