Austin Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Austin is not like any other city in the state of Texas. Although it is sometimes referred to as the state's Hippie Haven, the city is actually a cultural mecca that attracts some of the world's best music acts. If you love live music, you'll adore Austin!

Driving In And Around Austin

Flights to Austin arrive at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, which is located just under 12 miles from the city's downtown district and its many cheap Austin hotels. Although a stroll through downtown Austin is definitely worth your while, you'll also want to snag a rental car in Austin and aim it north toward Georgetown, which has several distinctive historic structures, many of which are located near the city's downtown square. Be sure to also stop by the Williamson Museum, where you'll learn all about what life was like for Georgetown residents over 100 years ago. After learning about Georgetown's fascinating history, head to the San Gabriel River, where locals and tourists alike love to stroll. Although gorgeous any time of the day, the river looks especially impressive at sunset.

Austin is a bit out there when compared to other cities in Texas, but that's exactly what makes this enclave so appealing. Do your part to keep things weird while traversing with your cheap truck rental in Austin.
