Traveling off peak season in Austin


Austin, as we all know, lives and breathes on college life and music. It is, after all, home to the biggest Texas universities and tons of live music clubs that harbor undiscovered talent. That's why coming to Austin requires a little bit of planning around festivals (especially in the summer).

BEST TIME TO GO

You can't go wrong on a spring or fall visit to Austin. The temperatures are cool enough on 70s so you can do plenty of outdoors activities. Summer is very muggy at 90s, but take heart -- you can go straight to the Barton Springs pool for a dip. Christmas is fun in Austin winters which are generally mild at low 60s, with rare frost, if any.

EVENTS

In April, Austin celebrates the Austin Fine Arts Festival. In September, the mother of all, the Austin City Limits Music Festival is in full swing. In October, get ready for the Austin Film Festival.

OFF PEAK SEASON

While many tourists visit in the summer, hotel rates in winter plummet so you can save a lot of money during off peak season. Also, since this is college town, shop and eat at places where the students go, because it's likely where you can save the most dough.
