  • Day 1

    Relax, Youre In Austin

    Chances are youll want a few hours to relax when you arrive if this is also your arrival date. A recommended place to lounge is The Hotel Saint Cecilia, especially on Fridays. Suite 1 in the main house is a favorite for guests, if you can find a night when its vacant. Also, if youre hungry after you check into your hotel, you could try some of the best cuisine the state has to offer. Then, you could attend a show at the Zach Theatre if a production you want to see happens to be running when you first arrive.

    Maybe after youve eaten a healthy breakfast ordered in or at a local fine restaurant, you might want to get a little bit active. If you love the outdoors and you want to learn about Austin, Texas history and culture, you can hit the Lady Bird Hike-and-Bike Trail.

    A Relaxing/Recharge Day

    If you stayed up too late on 6th Street on Day 2, you might possibly opt for a low-key morning. After breakfast at a local neighborhood venue (i.e. Joes Bakery also famous for its Mexican breakfasts), maybe youll want to see some more famous buildings or go to some museums.
