Getting out on the water is one of the most popular activities in Austin. If you’re looking for a great daytime activity, you can rent different types of boats to go down the river or out on the lake.
We definitely recommend a party boat when going to Lake Austin or Lake Travis, and Party Cove is where it’s at. If you have a large group, you can rent a full barge! Or if you’re looking for something a little different, you can float the San Marcos or New Braunfels River on a tube. Stock your coolers and bring some water, as this is a marathon, not a sprint. Throw in some jello shots and you’ve got yourself a killer day.
If you’re looking for something a bit more low-key, you can rent a paddleboard or canoe and paddle around Lady Bird Lake, right next to downtown. Regardless of where you end up, when you’re floating with all of your friends, you know it’s going to be a good time!
Eat Some BBQ
Austin is home to some of the best BBQ in the country. If you’re in town for a bachelorette party, there are plenty of places to get your fill of brisket, ribs and all the fixins. Definitely check out la Barbecue, Valentina’s, Franklin Barbecue, Micklethwait, Salt Lick BBQ, or Terry Black’s.
Plan a House Party
When you think Texas, you think cowboys. But let’s be honest, there aren’t too many cowboys walking around downtown Austin. Luckily, there’s one company that brings them to you! Meet the Cocktail CowBoys – expert party hosts and country butlers. Think sexy cowboy, but without the creepiness and X-rated activities. These CowBoys will make and serve drinks, help with party games, keep the party area clean, bring the vibes as Spotify DJs, and take and pose in pictures. It’s a perfect addition to a night in, a game night, pregame, brunch, or pool party. But even if you don’t hire the CowBoys, be sure to plan some downtime at home.
Relax At Barton Springs Pool
If you’re looking for a place to soak up some sun, Barton Springs Pool is where it’s at. Located in Zilker Park, this natural pool was formed by the springs that run under the city of Austin. One of the most popular summertime activities for locals, Barton Springs Pool offers a refreshing respite from the Texas heat.
Experience the Nightlife
For nightlife, Sixth Street is a great place to start. There are plenty of bars and restaurants with fun atmospheres that you’ll want to explore and enjoy. Whether you’re on West 6th, Dirty 6th, or East 6th, you’ll find a bar that fits your group’s vibe. If you’re looking for something slightly more low-key, head over to Rainey Street. This area is full of houses converted into small bars that have a good atmosphere, day or night. For more info on nightlife, check out our blog on must-do activities in Austin.
Hit up the Restaurants
Austin’s restaurant is vibrant and diverse. From southern Tex-Mex to high class bistros, you’ll find a wide variety of delicious cuisine in the city. If you’re looking for a hip, trendy spot with some delicious Mexican food, Fonda San Miguel is your best bet. It has an awesome atmosphere any day of the week. There are tons of other food options for brunch, dinner, and everything in between. Just make sure to call and ask if they can accommodate groups.
Visit South Congress
South Congress is a great place for a daytime or nighttime stroll with your girl gang. There are a handful of cute brunch spots and plenty of hip shops with great Texas-themed clothes and decor. If you’re there at night, stop in The Continental Club, one of Austin’s most historic music venues.
