My husband and I will be visiting Austin in April next year. When we vacation we usually rent a vacation home. I've done a little looking around and it seems that most vacation rentals in Austin are further than walking distance to the restaraunts and clubs.
We want to feel free to drink while dining or listening to music but we absolutely don't drink and drive.
Can any of locals on this forum provide some suggestions for a good solution?
A little background:
The reason we rent vacation homes is because we like to have breakfast at home and it's so nice having more than just a bedroom for our stays. An outdoor area is also a bonus. We could stay in a hotel/motel if it's a suite with a living room and has some type of kitchentte. Now, I'm not talking about a suite at a fancy hotel - that would be out of our price range.
We haven't decided about renting a car but most likely if we stay on the outskirts of town we will.
We wouldn't want to spend much more than $200 per night.
We're not opposed to taking taxi's if they are easy enough to find - in some towns they aren't.
Quite a list huh? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
