Discover Austin

After booking your short-term rental in Austin, here's everything you need to know for your trip.

Almost one million people are estimated to live in Austin, the capital of Texas. It lies in the southeast quadrant of the state, along the banks of the Colorado River.

Spanish pioneers first started settling the area along the river in the 1830s, and in 1839, it was known as Waterloo, and became the capital of the new independent Republic of Texas. It was later changed to Austin to honor the republic’s first secretary of state, Stephen F. Austin. In the years following the Civil War, the population grew rapidly, and soon, the Houston and Texas Central Railway, and later the Missouri, Kansas and Texas rail line, would make Austin a regional center for trade.

The Texas Oil Boom in the early 1900s brought even more economic opportunity to the city, and today it’s a major metropolitan center known for its eccentricity and national live music scene. Short-term rentals are available in many of the different neighborhoods that are all worth exploring.
