Austin is a Vacation Desination!
Find dancing any night of the week. From Two-Step to Salsa, and of course no shortage of Swing, you can find any type of dancing or just relax and watch a live band. Regular swing dance nights are held Monday through Thursday each week, and local clubs offer a variety of live music dancing options that chance each week. We will provide a schedule for the week when we get closer to February.
Explore the famed clubs of South Congress, a cultural hub of Austin. Catch a show at The Continental Club, grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants or food trucks, or just wander around the shops. Then head over to South Lamar to visit the Broken Spoke for a real piece of honky-tonk history.
Shop the eclectic stores on The Drag or the South Congress and Eastside neighborhoods, or head to North Loop for vintage galore. Not into shopping? Get outdoors in our warm winter weather! Austin is home to the historic Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, hike and bike trails both in the city and surrounding hill country, and Lady Bird Lake right in the middle of town. Rent a bike, paddle the lake, or just sit on a patio with a cool drink and good eats, the options are endless!
Make sure you take the time to try Austin’s famous breakfast tacos and barbecue! Yes, tacos for breakfast, queso any time of day, and some of the best barbeque in the south. Austinites have definite options on which barbeque is considered the “best” so you will have to try for yourself - Franklin's, La Barbeque, Valentina’s, or Freedman's (conveniently located around the corner from the Fed) just to name a few!
