Feeling Welcomed in Our Texas Hill Country Memorial Day Rentals
Your first “responsibility” will be choosing which bedroom to make yours during your stay. If you are the parent in the family, your choice will already be made as you head straight to the master suite and toss your suitcase on the bed. Unpacking can be handled later; there are things you want to see first!
For example, the kitchens of our Texas Hill Country Memorial Day rental homes look so beautiful on the website and you may be wondering if it is possible to be that stunning in real life? As you wander into the space that is definitely the heart of the home, you will soon find that yes, it is possible, and the room is going to be your happy space over this long weekend! This is where you will put the steaks out for seasoning, toss together the ingredients for potato salad, and sneak tiny slices of the Texas sheet cake which is going to be the first thing you create after a trip to the store! The dining areas aren’t just for eating, these rooms are made for conversations, game playing, and sipping at the sangria that seems to go even better with the steaks than you originally thought it might.
Heading towards the living room next, you look around with approval, taking in the plush and comfortable furnishings, the oversized windows offering views of the Texas Hill Country you can’t help but fall in love with, and that giant smart TV that hangs on the wall (over the fireplace if your rental has one). Every inch of the space you have chosen to make yours for the holiday is designed to make you feel comfortable, welcomed, and more than a little spoiled, especially our homes with a pool or hot tub! The kids can practice their cannonballs as dad mans the barbecue grill that no self-respecting Texas home would be without, and mom can lose herself in the music playing on whole house system and revel in the warmth of the sun beating down. Your home town may still be dealing with last minute spring storms, but here in Texas Hill Country, the long and lazy days of summer have already begun!
Now that you have explored the public rooms, sparing a quick glance in laundry rooms and spacious bathrooms, it is time to head back to your bedroom, where your suitcase lies neglected. There are two types of travelers, and what you do next will depend on which type you are. Do you unpack everything, hanging your clothes in the oversized closets and tuck your other garments away in dressers that are Texas-sized before slipping into the bathing suit and cover-up you packed specifically for days like today? Or do you simply open the case, dig through until you find your suit, drop your clothes you are wearing where you stand and slip into that brand new bikini? There’s no wrong answer, as BOTH types of travelers will end up in the same place, sitting by the pool sipping sangria on another perfect day in paradise!
The Start of Summer
Memorial Day Weekend has always served as the start of summer, a season that makes everyone feel young again. Offering long days that spread out before you in an endless array of possibilities, spending at least some of your summer days in Texas Hill Country is guaranteed to make the impossible happen as your season in the sun turns out better than you dreamed. Hike along trails that take you deep into its beauty and plan a day of swimming at Hamilton Pool Preserve, a natural area rich in history that has been our swimming hole for centuries. The Memorial Day sales are always great ones, and as you shop till you drop in fun stores like Revel Wilde and the Juniper Tree Market, you will soon decide that this really is the best summer ever! Because you don’t have to get up early in the mornings, staying up late is a luxury you will surely enjoy, especially as you hit the entertainment scene in Austin! Known as the Live Music Capital of the World—it’s even trademarked, y’all, so you know it has to be true—there’s always something musical happening in Austin! Experience your favorite performers at the Grove Amphitheater, singing along to your favorite songs and dancing to the music under the stars. Celebrate everything you love when you visit during music festival times; the Hot Luck Fest, Austin Live Music Revival, and the Kerrville Folk Music Festival are just a few examples of festivals that take place over Memorial Day Weekend. And when you want to blend hot music with cold beverages and delicious food, Stubb’s BBQ offers an outdoor music venue and a delicious taste of our favorite summer meals!
Speaking of Food
You could cook every meal in our fully equipped I Love Dripping Springs vacation sanctuaries or you could treat yourself to a taste of the town, sprinkling in a few home-cooked meals in between! Visit Phoebe’s Diner at 533 W Oltorf Street for breakfast burritos in Austin, Pig Pen Barbecue at 301 US-290 for tasty lunches in Dripping Springs, or Odd Duck at 1201 S Lamar Boulevard for a fancy dinner back in Austin. The selection of restaurants Texas Hill Country offers never fails to amaze. The Texas Chili Parlor, located 1409 Lavaca Street in Austin, is destined to become your newest culinary obsession; it can be a little spicy though, so we recommend you wash each bite down with an ice-cold refreshing beer!
Exploring Texas Hill Country
There may not be any specific Memorial Day celebrations going on during your visit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun while exploring the region! Take a tour of the area aboard a gentle steed when you take lessons from Maverick Horseback Riding, located in Austin. Reserve a trail ride by texting 512-230-8413 and spend a few hours riding along streams, across meadows, and under the canopy of trees found in the wooded areas! After a day spent on horseback, a giant and juicy steak will be the only thing that satisfies your hunger, and Perry’s Steakhouse and Grill will soon become your new happy place! Located at 114 W 7th Street in Austin, this upscale steakhouse will be a nice contrast to your Memorial Day in Texas Hill Country spent roughing it on horseback!
