This Airstream houseboat sits on Lake Travis and is just 30 minutes from downtown Austin. As the state capital of Texas and located next to the Texas Hill Country region, Austin provides a fantastic combination of bespoke amenities and outdoor recreation any time of year. Barton Creek Habitat Preserve is a scenic landscape on Barton Creek that protects the natural habitat of two endangered songbirds. It provides an amazing opportunity for glampers to get back in touch with nature.

Further afield, the San Marcos River offers the best of both worlds. From scenic river floats and tubing to energetic hikes and treks around the river, glampers can enjoy adventure and relaxation. Those in search of an adrenaline rush can quench their thirst by skydiving and admiring the beauty of the Hill Country region from up high. Closer to home, Lake Travis offers a wealth of activities to enjoy right at the Marina. Glampers can rent a boat, zip across the lake with a ziplining adventure, grab a drink at the Oasis and watch the magnificent sunset, or pub crawl along Marina’s waterfront.

In addition to outdoor activities, Austin is home to scores of restaurants, cafes, and beer gardens, as well as an electric live-music scene. Furthermore, glampers can visit world-class museums, discover an eclectic art and culture scene, and enjoy one-of-a-kind shopping in the heart of the city.
