Fall Journey to Austin

Travelers near and far flock to the warmer weather of places like Texas throughout the year, especially in the cooler month of fall when other locales are significantly cooling down in anticipation of winter. Once you’ve settled on Texas for your fall respite, point your compass to Austin. There are plenty to see and things to do in the fall in Austin that will keep you as busy as you like during your stay, whether you spend your time indoors or out.

Day 1:

Entertainment Hot Spots

While some people may enjoy the chaos of a “fun center,” theme park, or other all-in-one entertainment locale, there are an array of choices in the Austin area for your entertainment needs. Enjoy museums, theaters for live performances or the latest Hollywood blockbusters, comedy clubs, and more. When the sun goes down, there are a number of bars, taverns, and clubs offering entertainment to unwind with after a long day of Austin fun and excitement.

Breweries & Distilleries

Enjoy some adults-only time this fall on your Austin retreat. The city is home to several breweries and distilleries. Grab something to eat and wash it down with brews from companies like Austin Beerworks, Austin Craft Brewing Company, Treaty Oak Distilling, Still Austin Whiskey Co., and many more. You may even be able to buy some to bring back to your rental to enjoy with your next home-cooked meal.


Austin hosts a number of spas and salons offering a myriad of relaxing services. Head home relaxed, rejuvenated, and refreshed when you select from services including manicures, pedicures, body wraps or scrubs, massages, and more. The spa isn’t just a ladies’ day. Many spas and salons offer men’s services like manicures, pedicures, scalp treatments, and more that cater to “his” unique needs. Select spas even have salons where you can get a new haircut or color, or have your makeup done by a pro – while also getting an informative lesson to keep up the routine once you’re home.

Day 2:

Austin Zoo

Get wild this fall! Spend some time outdoors, wandering the zoo and getting to know its residents. You’ll meet lions, tigers, cougars, and other cats. Marvel at mammals like North American black bears, wolf hybrids, or the interesting and unique coatimundi – a member of the raccoon family that lives 7-15 years and can weigh up to 17 pounds! Visit primates like the ring-tailed lemur and a variety of monkeys. The zoo showcases native Texas wildlife too, from the Texas leaf-cutting ant to the eastern fox squirrel. Wrap up a visit with domesticated animals like longhorns, miniature donkeys, pot-bellied pigs, and llamas.

Sightseeing Tours

See the sights of Austin this fall but let someone else do the driving. While you can create and execute your own tour of the city, there are a variety of companies that offer guided tours. You’ll see or stop at some of Austin’s best landmarks, parks, stadiums, and attractions. Choose a tour that hits locations like the many murals around town, including the “Greetings from Austin” mural, or one that takes you to the many places on historic 6th Explore the spookier side of the city on a haunted history walking tour.

Day 3:


For some it may be the first stop on the first day. Austin is the capital city of Texas, and the capitol building houses all the government functions needed for maintaining everything that keeps the state running. The capitol building you’ll visit on your fall retreat to Austin this year was completed and dedicated in May of 1888. If you’ve been to the U.S. capitol in Washington, DC, you might feel like the Texas capitol building is bigger. You’d be right! In fact, the Texas capitol building is 14.64 feet taller than the U.S. capitol, as measured from the ground to the top of the Statue of Freedom atop the U.S. capitol and from ground to the tip of the Goddess of Liberty on the Texas capitol.

Texas Military Forces Museum

The 45,000-square foot facility lets you wander and explore the history of the Texas militia and volunteer forces dating all the way back to 1823. Explore several permanent exhibits that include samples of uniforms, weapons, equipment, personal items, film, music, and much more that reflect life in the Texas military. Check the schedule to see if the museum is hosting any of its many living history programs, battle reenactments, or other special events while you’re here.
