Austin has been on your bucket list for some time, and now you're finally on your way. But before you pack your bags and hop in a ride to the airport, you have some big decisions to make. There is a lot that goes into planning your ideal vacation—from selecting the right clothes to choosing things to do in Austin, and more. We don't want you to spend too much time on every little decision, so we invite you to consider the lodging on our list of gay-friendly hotels in Austin. You probably still have other things to get ready, but now you know you've got your accommodations covered.
Deep in the heart of Texas (or in its capital, at least), you can find a welcoming LGBTQ community that has been thriving since the 1970s. While you'll surely want to watch the bats at Congress Avenue Bridge, catch some live music at the Continental Club, and maybe even brave the lines at Franklin's for some legendary barbecue, your trip wouldn't be complete without checking out the LGBTQ scene. Booking a room at one of our Austin LGBT hotels will give you easy access to the Fourth Street Strip, which includes popular gay bars such as Oilcan Harry's, Sellers, and Rain.
Right about now, you probably can't wait for your escape to Austin to start. And why not? You're about to visit one of the area's most popular vacation spots, where you'll discover amazing new places, cuisines, and things to do. Even so, you still need a certain amount of comfort. Picking the right accommodations can make a world of difference, so let us make that decision a little easier. Our gay-friendly hotels in Austin are comfortable places where you can be yourself, even when you're on the road. Best of all, your AARP membership provides you with exclusive rates on hotels, rental cars, and more, so secure your spot now.
