As Easter grows closer, you may be planning your next traveling adventure even as this is not typically a holiday during which people travel.

Easter is held on April 17th this year and as the promise of spring grows closer to the rewards of summer, Austin begins to enjoy some of its best weather of the year. Warm enough to leave the coats behind and let the sun shine down on winter pale faces, but dry enough that the humidity doesn’t overwhelm and if you are planning to enjoy an Easter celebration in our favorite place on earth, it only makes sense to spend it in our favorite properties on earth, our Austin vacation rentals. This guide to your upcoming Easter in Austin, TX, adventures and the comforts offered by our home will give you a sneak peek into the best vacation you will ever take!

Another Easter staple is, of course, the hunt for colorful Easter eggs and there are more than a few public events happening in Austin this year! The Steiner Ranch Spring Fling is offering all sorts of Easter activities, including photo opps and face painting (in addition to the egg hunt) on Easter Sunday itself from 11 AM until 2 PM at Austin Kids Retreat and On April 16th, the day before Easter, an Easter Egg Hunt is sure to be enjoyed at Simpson Park.
