When you get the travel bug but don’t have the room in your budget, consider a staycation. What are some things you have access to right in your own area you wouldn’t normally do? Spend the money you saved on the flight and hotel at a nice restaurant, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, or a night of performing arts. If you live the Austin area there are plenty of fun, unique, and even free things to do that won’t blow your budget – here are a few of our favorites!
Can’t get away for the whole weekend? Pitch a tent in the backyard, make S’mores, and grab some flashlights and a good book. If you’ve got kids they will love the experience regardless of the location.
Here are a few more ideas to make your backyard camping trip a blast!
Visit the library
Thumbing through interesting books for an hour or two can be a great escape from the house, and it doesn’t cost a dime to just browse.
The Dripping Springs Library, Bee Cave Library, and Austin Libraries often have free story times and events just for kids. Book stores like Book People & Barnes and Noble also have story times throughout the year.
Making a meal for a large group can be costly, but if each group brings one or two essential ingredients it’s much more reasonable, and now everyone can pitch in on the cooking.
Instead of spending $40 at the movie theater consider a new board game, which you can enjoy for hours, and then when you’ve had enough you can trade games with a neighbor.
No matter what you decide to do this weekend, Austin, Dripping Springs, and the Texas Hill Country have a lot to offer! If you’re thinking about moving to the area, listing your home, or know someone who is, contact us! One of our property specialists would love to work with you!
