Why is Austin the Ultimate Bachelorette Party Destination?
Austin is bursting with trendy restaurants and bars, outdoor activities, a bustling nightlife- and it’s’ the live music capital! Austin truly offers something for everyone. Plus, it is a short drive away from the Texas Hill Country, featuring a growing Texas wine industry, Texas beer industry, as well as Texas spirits!
See our East Austin Guide for the trendiest restaurants and bars, plus local breweries.
What is the Best Time to Visit Austin?
Being in Texas- the climate is relatively warm all year round, and especially hot in the late summer months. Peak season is September through November and March through May.
In July and August, we have days over 100 degrees and you will want to seek refuge in the water- and Austin has lots of it! Check out our Private River Trips.
The remainder of the year is often very pleasant, with a very mild winter. In Austin, the weather can change by the minute, so we recommend layers!
Expect rises in pricing and lots of crowds during the following weekends:
- March- South by Southwest Music Festival
- August- Bat Fest
- October- Austin City Limits
- October- Formula 1
- Fall Season- University of Texas Football
Austin Bachelorette Party Itinerary:
Austin truly has something to offer for whatever your party is looking to get into- food and drink, health, live music, and entertainment. Texas Tipsy Tours has put together different curated Austin bachelorette party ideas.
For wine lovers: The Texas wine industry is a relatively young industry, but it is growing quickly! You will find several wine bars and a couple of wineries inside Austin city limits, but most of the wineries are located in the Dripping Springs area (about 45 minutes from Austin) and Fredericksburg (about one a half hours from Austin).
Texas specializes in many Spanish and French varieties including Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, Sangiovese, Albarino, and Viognier. Texas has over 50 wineries in the Texas hill country!
| Tip: Book a tour with Texas Tipsy Tours to not only have a professional driver in a luxury Mercedes Sprinter but also an expert guide to help customize your itinerary complete with the best wineries to visit.
