Enjoy Time at the Lake or River
Austin is right in the heart of Hill Country here in Texas. You will find a variety of rivers and lakes that directly connect to the city limits making them easier than ever to get to. Enjoy a relaxing day of tubing down the river when you visit local rivers such as San Marcos River and Comal River. Shuttle services are typically available making it easier than ever to get to. Guadalupe River is a little bit farther but offers a nearby rental shop to rent out kayaks or tubes for your water-based adventure. You can always rent a boat on Lake Travis or Lake Austin too. Lady Bird Lake offers boat cruises with local companies including Capital Cruises and Lone Star Riverboat. Time on the water with beautiful cityscape views never disappoints.
Visit Congress Avenue Bridge During Your Labor Day Vacation in Austin
You cannot visit Austin in the summer and skip out on seeing the infamous bats of Congress Avenue Bridge. These nocturnal critters hole up on the underside of the bridge between the months of April through October. Around dusk the bats will take flight and fill up the evening sky. This is an experience that needs to be seen to be believed.
Enjoy a Round of Golf
There is nothing more relaxing on vacation than enjoying a round or two of golf. Austin has many public golf courses that will cater to all experience levels. Lake Travis is the home of Falconhead Golf Club where you can enjoy lakeside views as you tee off. Butler Park Pitch & Putt offers a more casual experience in the family for those who do not have the time for a full round of 18-hole golf.
