As Easter grows closer, you may be planning your next traveling adventure even as this is not typically a holiday during which people travel. But as we are all still trying to make up for lost time, getting away seems to be our latest obsession. 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 adventures and the comforts offered by our home will give you a sneak peek into the best vacation you will ever take!
Fill the Baskets
If you are traveling with your kiddos you know the cardinal rule is “do not forget the baskets!” Edis Chocolates, 3808 Spicewood Springs Road Suite 102, makes this job very easy offering a selection of handmade chocolates, pastries, and cookies that will entice the “Easter Bunny” to purchase a few extras for themselves!
Find the Eggs This Austin Easter
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. Featuring photo opps with the BBOC (big bunny on campus) and lasting from 9AM until noon, this exciting event promises to offer fun for the whole family.
As the world slowly begins to open its doors once again, the Easter Brunch is coming back in force in Austin giving Austin visitors full stomachs and happy souls! The Old 290 Brewery & Restaurant, for example, located in nearby Johnson City allows for a different sort of Hops as adult guests enjoy local beers with their Easter Brunch which will impress even the pickiest of foodies!

As 2021 moves along at a brisk pace, we find ourselves not just wanting to travel, but needing to explore! The last 12 months have been interesting to say the least, and although we haven’t reached the end of the uncertainty, we can definitely see a light at the end of the tunnel and the glimmer reveals that traveling is once again easier than it has been. And although we just passed the last of the three-day holiday weekends for a while, you may be thinking that Easter is the perfect time to getaway to Austin for a laid-back vacation and a stay in one of our luxurious and comfortable Austin Vacation Rentals holiday hideaways. This guide will give you some ideas on how to make your holiday away one that you will never forget!
Something Wonderful This Easter in Austin
After many months of seeing the same four walls, it will definitely be nice to see something wonderful and new, and our escapes easily provide both for Easter in Austin! But if you worry that your holiday traditions may have to be put aside for this year, we are happy to explain all the reasons you can put your fears aside. Choose your comfy and serene bedroom, toss your suitcases on the bed, and make your way to our fully equipped kitchens to see how easy it will be to create an Easter feast in the space. Filled with high-end appliances, these rooms look pretty but they also make it easy to get the hard work done as you glaze hams, whip mashed potatoes, and boil dozens of eggs for the children to decorate and the resident Easter bunny to hide. Dining rooms dominated by tables large enough to hold the family and the feast serve multiple purposes, as occupants can play games, decorate eggs, or sip coffee in the early mornings watching the skies cycle through Easter colors as the sun fully rises.
Living areas are cozy and warm, containing state of the art televisions, comfy furnishings, and in more than a few cases game tables that can include foosball or pool. Set up the Easter baskets on the ledge over the fireplace, on one of the empty shelves in a bookcase, or on the coffee table that is perched in front of the sofa and watch your kids joyously tear apart your careful prep work to discover the treats inside! And when the sun sets again and the velvety purple sky lights up from the twinkle of millions of stars, sleep will come easy and dreams will be hoppy in rooms designed for peace and comfort.

Find the Service First
Easter is an important religious holiday for many, and if your traditional Easter Sunday includes an early morning service, Austin has many local establishments that host a special Easter Service. We are home to a wide variety of religious preferences, so you will easily be able to find your perfect fit.
Not Your Traditional Egg Hunt
While we do offer plenty of Easter egg hunts for children, Austin features one unique egg hunt you won’t find just anywhere – an adult Easter egg hunt! Hosted by a local Austin bar, the Jackalope South Shore Annual Easter Egg Hunt boasts an exciting adults-only event with great drink specials and a scavenger style egg hunt that is sure to keep you busy for hours!
Easter Egg Hunting Festival
If you are coming to Austin with kids, though, nothing beats the Easter Egg Festival that takes place at Capitol Lawn every Easter Sunday. This free event is said to be the biggest Easter egg hunt in town and includes so many more fun activities that the day will feel more like a festival! The kids will have a blast getting their faces painted, competing in egg roll races and more. They even divide the egg hunts by ages so it’s fair and fun for everyone.
Must Have: Easter Brunch
Brunch is a popular one in Austin, so once you’ve done some research, book a reservation in advance to make sure you get your table! One popular bunch destination is the Eastside Cafe, features made from scratch entrees like huevos Mexicanos, smoked salmon eggs Benedict, and a picture-worthy apple almond waffle. Other favorite spots for locals include Driskill’s traditional Easter brunch and Threadgill’s, where you can go big and order the unlimited menu and enjoy omelets, pancakes, biscuits and more to your heart’s content.
