The spring season is the perfect time of year to visit Austin, Texas. The weather is phenomenal and the tourist season has yet to begin. With that in mind, you should consider spending your Easter weekend in Austin. Here is how to plan for your next Austin Easter:
The Fun Isn’t Just for the Kids during Austin Texas Holidays
If you ever look on at an Easter egg hunt and wished there was an adult version, you are in luck. Jackalope South Shore, a local Austin bar, hosts its annual adult Easter egg hunt in the Southeast neighborhood of town. This adults-only event features incredible drink specials and a scavenger hunt that will keep you entertained for hours. Make sure to leave the kids at home, but not your sense of fun!
Easter Egg Festival
Of course, there are plenty of Easter egg hunts found around the city that are perfect for children of younger ages. The biggest hunt is the Easter Egg Festival that takes place at Capitol Lawn every Easter Sunday. The event is free to attend and includes various activities such as face painting, egg roll races, preschool Easter egg hunts, and more. The egg hunts are divided by ages so it’s fair for everyone to play.
Find the Perfect Easter Brunch
If there is one thing that adults love about Easter, it is the plentiful Easter brunches going on. The Driskill hosts a traditional Easter brunch with favorites such as tender porchetta and sugary sweets. Go for the unlimited menu found at Threadgill’s where you can dine in on omelets, biscuits, pancakes, and more. Add some wine to your Easter brunch at Cru Food & Wine Bar where specially-priced adult beverages can be paired with your meal. Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill is another Austin favorite for brunch. Their brunch menu features a wide array of southern comfort foods such as fried green tomatoes and crawfish & grits. Since Easter brunch is a popular activity in Austin, you will want to reserve your table in advance!
Finding Your Easter Service
Keep your Austin Easter Sunday traditional by participating in an Easter Service. Many local worshipping halls feature an Easter Service. Popular establishments include the Central Presbyterian Church, Unity Church of Hills, and the University United Methodist Church. . Holy Word Lutheran Church offers a special sunrise service on Easter, beginning at 7am. Held on the grounds of Pioneer Farms, this casual outdoor service is a special way to begin the holiday with the day’s first rays of light. Austin is home to a variety of religious affiliations, so you will be able to find your chosen place of worship with ease.
Easter Weekend in Austin
Other than Easter activities, there are many ways to enjoy the city of Austin with a getaway over the Easter holiday. Eastertime in Austin is pleasant, with daytime temperatures usually in the upper 70s and evenings cooling off to the upper 50s. These mild temperatures and clear skies make it a great time to enjoy some of Austin’s best outdoor venues without the intense heat of summer. Plan a family picnic in Zilker Park and take a dip in Barton Springs Pool, naturally heated from an underground spring. Walk off Easter Brunch along the Barton Creek Greenbelt or rent bikes to ride along the scenic waterways on the Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail. McKinney Falls State Park offers a scenic respite despite its surprisingly close proximity to the city. Here you’ll find beautiful limestone rock formations, waterfalls, and serene hiking trails.
If you’d prefer an Easter getaway filled with bustling city sites, be sure to explore Austin’s South Congress district, also known as SoCo. This favorite area is packed with unique shops, restaurants, bars, and live music venues. There’s always something interesting to see and do in SoCo!
