By the time you are reading this, summer will have reared its ugly head, offering days filled with heat, humidity, and unrelenting sunshine, which at the beginning of the season, we all love. By the end of summer, however, we are definitely ready for the cooler temps and the final holiday of the season. The good news is that Labor Day Weekend is just around the corner. The promise of lower temperatures is just a little further down the road, and now is the perfect time to start planning your Labor Day escape to our beautiful and wonderfully hometown. This guide to the fun you can have in Austin and your stay in one of our holiday hideaways will make the summer heat a lot more bearable.

Picnic in the Park This Austin Labor Day

After the last few months, we’re all still practicing social distancing, but that doesn’t mean you can never leave your vacation home away from home! The natural landscape of Austin provides many secluded spots where you can sneak away to enjoy a lovely picnic under the trees. Zilker Park, named Austin’s most-loved park, offers over 350 acres of near pristine wilderness in which you can play. Home to Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs Pool, and Zilker Botanical Gardens as well as a variety of paths and trails, once you step inside the borders of the park, you’ll soon understand why this spot is so special, and your Labor Day picnic will be a highlight of your Texas getaway!

A Bird’s Eye View

The best views are generally the ones from above and if you really want to appreciate the luxuriant beauty of Austin, a hike to the summit of Mt. Bonnell is the perfect way to do so. Located in Covert Park, there are 102 steps that will take you to the top, making it a slightly daunting experience, but you have a few weeks still, so if you start practicing now it shouldn’t be a problem! Once you reach the top, you’ll find yourself at the highest spot in town, staring at views that will take your breath away. Bring your camera and snap away—the pictures you take here during the Austin Labor Day weekend are guaranteed to be worthy of framing!

Austin in September is absolutely breathtaking, and it’s one of the best times of year to come and pay us a visit. You’ll be grinning ear to ear at the temperate weather and the lively local culture. The three-day weekend for Labor Day in Austin is a perfect time to come to have a memorable experience because there’s so much to do here. Here are a few helpful suggestions for your Labor Day in Austin:


Austin is an exciting city filled with more opportunities than you could ever fit into one weekend. You can sure, try though! Start your weekend off with a bang by visiting Circuit of the Americas for the thrill of a lifetime racing your family and friends in COTA Karting. Afterward, hang out around South Congress Avenue, sometimes considered the heart of Austin. Grab lunch at the South Congress Cafe and check out the wide variety of shops there too. Pick up the excitement in the evening again by heading to The Escape Game for a 60-minute adrenaline-fueled adventure in one of their themed escape rooms.


Yesterday was a day of action, so why not take it easy on Sunday with a day of tubing down the San Marcos River with Texas State Tubes? It’s your choice between a public tour or a private tour, and all tubing equipment is included. You’ll have a three-hour float down the river in which to relax and enjoy yourself. Since it’s already a water day, cap it off by taking a nighttime tour with Live Love Paddle to see the famous bats in their hordes out by the Congress Bridge. Now that’s one sight that you’ll never forget!


The best way to combine relaxation with adventure is a good old fashioned zipline. You can find one of those at the gorgeous Lake Travis, with Lake Travis Zipline Adventures. On your last afternoon and evening, one of the best things you could treat yourself to is a trip to the Boardwalk Trail on Ladybird Lake. This is a perfect way to end your visit to Austin because you’ll have a lovely view of both the skyline of the city and the water. This will definitely be your favorite family photo from the whole trip.
