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:
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.
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.
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.
