Joyful and Serene Thanksgiving in Austin

Although joyful tends to be a word we use to describe that “other” holiday, there is no better way to describe the celebration you will have with your family in our happy homes. 2020 has been a year we will all be happy to put behind us, but as you create your annual turkey feast in the cheerful and fully equipped kitchen of your rental, you won’t be able to stop the smile from blooming on your face! Perhaps this is the year your son will take a turn at making the sweet potato dish he loves so much or your teenage daughter will ask to carve the turkey as you gather round the farmer’s table to eat, laugh, and talk about the good things that have happened this year! After the meal is done, whether you are playing board games in the living area as the parade plays on the state of the art smart television, soaking in a hot tub under the night sky, or simply planning your “strategy” for Black Friday shopping, the comfortable and stylish surroundings will enhance the vacation you almost forgot to plan!

Family Cooks Deserve a Break!

Of course, you may not want to slave over a hot stove for hours only to have the meal you worked so hard on be devoured in mere minutes. This is your vacation too, and you deserve a break; you deserve to have someone else prepare the meal while you sit back and do your own devouring!

Austin is a cultural wonderland, and you couldn’t pick a better place to spend any holiday. This year cast off the chains of normal holiday tradition and take a trip to see us here in Austin! Whether you love art, music, nature, or hanging out in the late-night scene, you’ll have it all at your fingertips. Here are some ideas for how to spend your Thanksgiving in Austin this year:

Outdoor Autumnal Activities

Visit Lake Travis—you’ll want to come back to the lake again and again while you’re here. Go swimming, get crazy with the floating obstacle course at Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures, ride the zipline at Lake Travis Zipline Adventures, and catch waterside sunset views that you’ll cherish for a lifetime. You can even take a pub crawl out on the water with a chartered boat.

Go biking on one of our favorite trails! Try the Walnut Creek Trail, where you’ll get some rough terrain providing you an exciting challenge on your Austin vacation. For something more relaxing and kid-friendly, bike the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail, where you’ll get a lovely view of Lady Bird Lake on your peaceful ride through green foliage and quaint neighborhoods under the shining skyline of Austin.

Unique Adventures for the Whole Family

Explore the Manor Ghost Town on the eastern outskirts of Austin. The fall season is a great time to explore spooky abandoned places like this, and you’ll all get a kick out of it. Check out their calendar to see upcoming events such as movies and concerts.

Head into the mystical and otherworldly Inner Space Cavern, a natural underground cavern where you’ll see stalactites and stalagmites galore, and fossils dating all the way back to the Ice Age. Caves like this tend to keep stable inner temperatures, so this is one adventure you can take year-round.

Your Thanksgiving Dinner

All over Austin, restaurants are preparing for Thanksgiving in Austin brunch and dinner.  For quintessentially Texan food, have your Thanksgiving brunch at Jack Allen’s Kitchen. When the evening rolls around, get comfy at the Holy Roller rock ’n’ roll diner on Rio Grande, where you can find delicious 9” pies that feed up to 8 people.
