Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.

  • Drove up to the Austin Aquarium and couldn't believe that the GPS had sent us into a residential neighborhood. I was looking for a large building. Then I saw that it was a former grocery store turned ...  more »

  • Waste of money and time. Took all of 5 minutes to see everything. Had more fun at Salvation Army next door!  more »

  • We had a GREAT time!! The staff were all knowledgeable and happy to give a total experience. Each time we enquired about an animal, someone made sure we had the best possible encounter. The stingrays, (which were fantastic!) giant tortoise, the large iguana (that you can interact with), and the 75 parakeets (that you can go into an enclosure to feed) were all so stimulating! We had a GREAT time!
  • So when we first got there I thought we were in the wrong place. It's built in an old Kmart or something. The aquarium itself was really nice for the price. This place is definitely kid friendly.
  • This is a small local aquarium, and my family loves it! The reason that it's so great is because everything is up close and you get to touch and feel and feed so many of the animals. We recommend it highly!
  • Great place. This place is SUPER awesome, so many birds, fish and so much more to see here. Highly recommend. Anyone that rates this place as one star has mental problems, something wrong with them, maybe misery in their own personal life. IDK. What I do know is that for a privately owned aquarium, this place is great.
  • I felt extremely welcome and loved feeding the tropical fish. Getting to explore most areas and extremely helpful staff made my experience beyond pleasant. But the one staff member who went above and beyond was Timothy P. He helped assuage my fear of birds by having me feed them and pet them and explained their behaviors to me. I would really like to come back--it's not likely I'll forget this last experience.
