With a vibrant arts culture and plenty of festivals and events all year around, Austin, Texas is a great place for an RV trip. You’ll find Austin RV parks in the city as well as on the banks of the Colorado River, where you can swim, hike and relax around the campfire in the evenings.
Choose from a downtown Austin RV park or a tranquil riverside RV resort on your stay. No matter where you choose, you’ll be treated to great Southern hospitality. And with amenities such as high-speed Wi-Fi and laundry services included in many Austin RV parks you won’t need to give up your home comforts along the way.
Head to Zilker Metropolitan Park where visitors can explore the park’s four hundred acres of sports fields and woodlands. Here you’ll find activities such as stand up paddle boarding, rowing and canoeing on offer for most of the year. Alternatively, head to Barton Springs where visitors can fish and swim in the 1,000-foot natural limestone pool.
If you are headed towards Colorado river, don’t forget to visit the area’s three great lakes: Lake Powell, Lake Mead and Lake Havasu. Each offers a great opportunity to hike, bike, boat and more – and with 300 days of sunshine here, why wouldn’t you want to spend your Arizona RV stay outdoors?
Austin, as Texas’ bustling capital city, offers plenty of shopping opportunities, from boutique to upscale stores. When you choose a city RV resort, you’ll be close to the area’s main strips and malls, such as Barton Creek Square and Lakeline Mall. Smaller Austin boutiques offer independent shopping, and there are also plenty of malls and food courts to browse, too.
If you love golf, take an RV trip to Austin while the Firecracker Open is on. This annual festival takes places at the height of summer and welcomes some of the biggest names on the circuit. If you plan to visit a little earlier, the Austin Food and Wine Festival is in town to keep your mouth happy. Here you’ll find some of the best chefs and bakers from around the world, with many local joints showcasing their goods, too.
