As we flip through the calendar pages, it may come as a surprise to realize that after a long and trying year, winter has finally arrived. The cooler days and longer nights offer a cozy punctuation point to our lives, and if you are seeking a winter escape that isn’t too crazy cold, a visit to Austin may be in your future! When you choose Austin Vacation Rentals for your accommodations, this guide to some of our favorite winter adventures will ensure a getaway filled with fun, laughter, and excitement.

Romance and Family Fun With These Winter Activities in Austin

There aren’t a lot of activities that can check off two boxes on your winter activity bucket list, especially the romantic time and family fun time ones, but ice skating happens to be the one activity that can! Grab your partners hand for a romantic whirl around the rink at the Chapparal Ice Center, and when your little ones want to join in, grab their hands and make it a family affair! Offering two locations—one in Northcross Austin (open from 8 AM until 6 PM) and one in Cedar Park that stays open until 10 PM—this winter activity is a favorite for people of all ages!

Hiking Trails That Will Make You Happy

The natural landscape of Austin is a beautiful one and because our winter weather never really gets too cold, you can enjoy the trails and walking paths all year round! Visit the Barton Creek Greenbelt and explore over 13 miles of trails or enjoy a simple walk around Mueller Lake with an expedition to Mueller Lake Park. Whichever hike you try is sure to be the one you will remember for a long time to come and if you happen to take a photo break, your pictures of these Winter activities in Austin will definitely be frame worthy!

The Hunt for Hot Cocoa

Not all adventures have to be grand undertakings, sometimes the simplest moments will be the ones that touch you the most! The hunt for hot cocoa has become serious business in the winter as we all seek the perfect combination of creamy and delicious! We at Austin Vacation Rentals have put a lot of research into the hunt and although it’s nearly impossible to find a bad cup of hot chocolate in our state, one of our favorite cups can be found at Fluff Meringues & More! Located at 48 Burnett Road #450, their incredible Mexican hot chocolate is a work of art, featuring a spiky meringue topper of vanilla and cocoa and a drizzle of ginger-caramel!
