We all have our preferences about what our favorite season in the year is best to travel. Some prefer to escape off in the winter to enjoy some winter sports. Others enjoy a tropical getaway right by the beach in the middle of summer. Regardless of which season is your personal favorite, it is often the best time to travel to Austin in the fall. This time of year sees fewer crowds, cooler temps, and more fun and activities in the area. Take a look at why the fall season is the perfect time to visit Austin this year:
Better Weather and Time Off
Weather is always an important factor when planning for a vacation getaway. Luckily the fall season is the perfect time to visit Austin, as the daily temps usually sit in the 70s and low 80s. This means you and your family get to explore the outdoors endlessly without having to worry about the high temps and humidity of the summer season. Speaking of the summer, you will also find that the fall season also has plenty of opportunities to visit that line up with school breaks. Make a visit for your kids’ fall break or visit on an extended weekend such as Labor Day. The Thanksgiving holiday is at the tail end of fall giving you several days to enjoy a visit!
Austin City Limits
If you are a music lover, the fall season is the perfect time to visit Austin again and again. During the month of October, Austin City Limits Music Festival will hit the stage at Zilker Metropolitan Park. This three-day music festival brings in top name acts from across the world for an incredible experience. Over 100 performances can be seen across nine stages throughout the three-day week. The lineup is always diverse, making sure there is an artist you are excited to see. Recent years have seen Austin City Limits add in a second weekend due to high demand. Tickets typically must be purchased in advance before selling out, but you can still find single-day and official resale tickets available. Don’t miss out on Austin City Limits when you visit Austin in the fall. The 2023 festival will take place over two weekends, so check out Austin from October 6th – 8th & 13th – 15th!
Unique Fall Activities
Making sure to find exciting activities to enjoy is always a necessary part of planning for any vacation getaway. The fall season sees an endless number of activities become available for those traveling to the area. Spend an evening over by Congress Avenue Bridge to check out the local bat community. The Mexican free tailed bats spend their days sleeping underneath the Congress Avenue Bridge and then take flight at dusk. The bats take to the skies every night—a must-see experience. They typically nest in Austin from March through early November, making it a perfect early fall activity. If you are in the mood for a pumpkin patch head over to Sweet Berry Farm. You will find enjoyable fall activities including exploring a pumpkin patch, hayride, corn mazes, scarecrow stuffing, and much more. This is the perfect activity for little ones who want a unique fall experience.
Go Leaf Peeping
It may come as a surprise to those who have not experienced Austin before, but the city does see a change in tree color during the fall. Another great reason that the fall season is best is the changing of the leaves that takes place each year. Many of the local foliage and trees change colors between mid-October to mid-November for a stunning display of color. You will get to see vibrant colors including bright reds, yellows, and oranges show up in the treetops decorating the landscape. Going out to see the changing colors of leaves is also called leaf peeping and is a popular fall activity.
More Time at the Lake
One of the most popular activities in the summer in Austin is spending time at one of the any lakes in the area. This includes Lady Bird Lake and Lake Travis. However, the summer season is known for these lakes to be at their busiest providing visitors little privacy when hanging out by the shore. You will notice that the weather in Austin during the fall is still warm allowing you to continue enjoying time at the lake. There will be less crowds and more space around you to enjoy the beautiful shoreline and water. Grab a kayak or canoe rental to explore the lake or try your hand at fishing. The lakes offer a multitude of ways to enjoy them.

The city of Austin is known for a lot of things. It is home to our nation’s largest colony of bats, it has led the way in making food trucks popular, offering a food truck scene that thrives, and it is the location of one of Renters Club’s most popular vacation escapes! Ok the latter may have been a fact unknown to you until now, but we are about to educate you on this charming 3-bedroom, 2-bath Texas haven we like to call Webster. Located in the premium South Congress area neighborhood and providing all the amenities that make travel fun, luxurious, and comfortable, up to 6 guests can share the space easily without feeling as if they are stepping all over each other. Today, we want to take you on a walkthrough of its floor plan, ensuring that it is the only space you will want to make your own during your Austin, Texas getaway!
Designed for Comfort
Webster could best be described as a cottage, offering a cute family vibe that instantly makes guests feel at home. Wood floors are stained a light shade of gold, creating elegant paths that lead to rooms filled with light and warmth. The dove gray sectional in the living room will invite guests to sink into its soft depths, pick up the remote lying within close proximity, and spend a couple of hours surfing the channels on the state-of-the-art television mounted on the wall opposite. Tongue and groove planks add a natural elegance to the room, as do the large windows that let in the light and offer unobstructed views of the neighborhood in the front of the home and the fenced yard in the back.
An open-concept floor plan reveals all and the spacious and modern kitchen allows the cook of the day to do their thing while watching the television in the living room! Crisp and white, stone counters, tiled walls, and stainless steel appliances give occupants the modern conveniences they love, while a large breakfast bar fronted with four wicker barstools provides the sense of family that makes guests feel at home. Scattered throughout the floorplan, guests will find bookshelves lined with books, games, and movies, and although white is the primary hue, pops of color found in blankets, art, and area rugs keep each room looking warm and welcoming.
The baths of Webster are light and bright, designed with modern fixtures and black accents and offering walk-in showers with clear glass walls. Each of the three bedrooms presents something unique that makes them stand out, including premium queen beds (in every room) an en suite bath and supersized television in the primary bedroom, and a crib that can help the tiniest travelers feel safe and protected. A laundry area with a full-sized washer and dryer finishes up the tour of the interior spaces of Webster, allowing guests to pack light and save room in their luggage for all the fantastic souvenirs they will pick up during their Austin adventures!
More to Enjoy on Your Austin, Texas Getaway
If Webster had nothing left to offer, we think you would still enjoy your Austin, Texas getaway filled with fun and comfort, but we are Renters Club and we don’t believe the old adage of less is more, we only believe you deserve the new adage of more is more. Step through sliding glass doors into a private oasis designed to make you think twice about ever leaving. A glass dining set placed under a wood pergola provides the perfect place to enjoy an al fresco meal on a warm summer evening in Austin, perhaps prepared on the propane grill that sits just off the wood deck. Continue your explorations further along the back of this charming cottage, watching the sunset from the comfort of an outdoor sofa. This large fenced-in backyard is centered by a whimsical cowboy pool, providing cool adventures on a hot summer’s day! What is a cowboy pool, you ask? Made from a large aluminum stock tank, their original purpose is for keeping farm animals hydrated, but we think you will appreciate their cooling properties instead! Surrounded by two cushioned lounge chairs perfect for working on your tan, a mature tree provides shade and serenity while a beanbag game located on the emerald-green grass offers more entertainment options. Cherished family memories will be made in this backyard space, serving as a place to play and relax after long days spent exploring the streets of Austin!
The Wonders of Webster Await
The city of weird offers whimsy and excitement and at the end of every day, coming home to Webster will be the highlight of your trip. Rest, relax, and recharge in its beautiful spaces, ensuring that this vacation will be one you never forget. Contact us and reserve Webster today!
