Years ago when people talked about Austin they would quickly mention the music. That’s just the beginning of what they’re saying these days. Austin is also home to a wonderful ballet, world-class museums, one-of-a-kind shopping, and beautiful outdoor spaces. You can just as easily spend your morning paddling the lake as you can strolling through a celebrated history museum.

In Austin you’ll find a state-of-the-art infrastructure, innovative meeting spaces, and world-class hotels nestled in the center and the heart of the city. Within a few walkable blocks, you’ll also find the famous Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail, legendary live music venues, and some of the best margaritas in the country.

Austin offers amenities that groups need for work and play, including two new 1,000+ room hotels on the horizon, growing nonstop flight options, and some of the most unique meeting spaces in the country. When the work is done, your meeting attendees will enjoy Austin’s 250+ live music venues and distinct downtown entertainment districts just steps from one of the most technologically advanced convention centers in the nation.

The secret is out. Everyone who visits Austin leaves with something great to say. They can’t stop talking about our legendary live music, burgeoning restaurant, unique culture, vibrant and welcoming community, as well as a list of other things that you just have to experience for yourself to truly understand what makes Austin so…Austin.


With more than 300 sunny days each year, Austin locals and visitors alike spend plenty of time outdoors. And it’s no wonder! The winters are temperate. The summers are, well, a little toasty. And the spring and fall offer up the perfect balance of bright blue sky and mild temperatures.

Take advantage of the pleasant weather. Catch an outdoor live music show, run around the trails, head to the lake, or just sit back on a patio and enjoy a cool drink. In other words, do what the locals do.
