Prepare to end your search for the perfect holiday destination. Austin, Texas has it all, from shopping bonanzas and delicious food to live musical performances and holiday displays. Austin is the whole package, and it’s the perfect candidate for an Austin holiday getaway that the entire family will remember for a lifetime.
Austin sits in the magic medium of climates, where the winters get cold, but not too cold. It usually dips to the 40s at night during the winter months, while the days remain palatable through fall and winter, moving from breezy and mild in October to brisk in November to verging on chilly in December. If you love winter as a concept but not enough to brave blizzards, head to Austin for the holidays.
Austin is the place to be, whether you’re looking for day-long outdoor adventures to embark on, or cozy indoor corners to curl up for coffee with a loved one. Try the Blanton Museum of Art, or Ellsworth Kelly: Austin, where the colored glass windows are perfect for a holiday photo op. Run the Austin Marathon or pay a visit to one of Austin’s famous wineries, like Duchman’s Family Winery. Explore the Barton Creek Greenbelt and all its natural wonders: a lush forest, 12+ miles of trails, and two waterfalls. It’s also the perfect vantage point to view the crisp Austin skyline.
