You came to Texas, and Austin for fun getaway full of year-round Texas warmth and sun. You’re also hoping to pack in as much rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation as possible. Get all you want and more with the many locales and relaxing things to do in Austin.
Day 1: Getting Settled
At Your Rental
Getting settled at your Austin vacation rental provided by Renters Club is one major key to your vacation relaxation. Once you’ve unpacked and have everything where you need and want it, the relaxation can begin! Our rentals are full of comfortable furnishings, cozy beds, and more that will keep you completely relaxed throughout your stay.
It’s always relaxing to know where and when you’ll be enjoying each meal of your vacation. You’ll likely turn to your fully equipped kitchen to prepare some meals, but sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than going out and letting someone else take care of the cooking and serving. Austin has a myriad of restaurants serving up every meal of the day, and cuisines including delicious seafood, authentic Mexican dishes, Italian fare, Asian, steakhouses, bar & grill fare, and more.
See the sights of Austin and let someone else do the driving. There are a variety of companies that offer guided tours of some of Austin’s best landmarks, parks, and attractions. Choose a tour that hits locations like historic 6th Street, the Museum of the Weird, the Texas state capitol building, and others. Depending on the tour, you can spend just a couple hours, or even the whole day getting to know the town you’ve decided to call home for a while.
Day 2: Entertainment Options
Haunted History Walking Tour
Much of Texas, and especially Austin, has a lengthy and storied history that consists of many battles and events. These events have left behind echoes and spirits of days gone by. There are organizations and tour companies around Austin that will take you on walking tours of the downtown historic areas of the city, and other important locales and fill you in on the details of what made Austin what it is today. Some companies even offer a paranormal investigation where you can actively seek out the spirits for an encounter you won’t soon forget. Contact your company of choice and inquire about age or other restrictions.
Austin Entertainment Hot Spots
While some people may go for the chaos of a “fun center,” theme park, or other all-in-one entertainment locale, there are more laid-back ways to stay entertained during your Austin relaxation journey. Austin boasts museums, theaters for live performances and the latest Hollywood blockbusters, comedy clubs, and other venues where the entertainment comes to you, or you can enjoy a more leisurely pace. When the sun goes down, there are a number of bars, taverns, and clubs offering adults-only entertainment to unwind with after a long day.
Day 3: Relaxation for Body and Mind
Many vacationers often load their e-readers or grab a few books to stuff in their carry-on before heading off to the airport or other transportation. It offers something to do throughout the travel days, as well as during down time at your rental. You may have miscalculated your reading needs and end up needing a new book. Austin has a number of bookstores that offer the latest New York Times bestsellers along with new independent authors and classics you want to read again. Stop by BookPeople, with not just books but coffee and pastries to enjoy while you read.
For some Native American, Chicanx, or Latinx selections, head to Resistencia Bookstore. If you’re looking for recommendations in the “most read” category, visit Recycled Reads, a 7,000-square-foot space filled with discarded books from the Austin Public Library and community donations. You’ll get a good, inexpensive read and also find a new cherished title and save it from the landfill.
A day at the spa is a great way to relax completely at the end of your trip. Austin hosts a number of spas and salons offering a myriad of services to relax your body and mind. Go home relaxed, rejuvenated, and refreshed! Choose from services like manicures, pedicures, body wraps or scrubs, a variety of massages, and more. Many spas also offer men’s services like manicures, pedicures, scalp treatments, and more that cater to “his” unique needs, and select spas have salons where you can get a new haircut, or have your makeup professionally done.
For added relaxation, there are gyms, wellness centers, and spas all around Austin that offer extra relaxation, like fitness classes, yoga, Pilates, and other activities to re-center your mind and body before returning home.
