Stay in the Festive Sprit in Austin!

Average temperature low and high: 41°-61°
Fresh off from the holidays, the nightlife is still going strong in Austin, a city known for museums, live music, and the great outdoors. During January, expect low 60s temperatures, the 3M Half Marathon, the Family Film Festival, and plenty of top-notch BBQ spots (Franklin BBQ is an absolute must). And if you're a music fan, check out Free Week and electric concerts by Blue Monday, Touch of Trey, and Colter Wall. There's more happening in Austin next month, so come back here soon.

Playboi Carti

Playboi Carti, hip-hop's Picasso of peculiarity, has been painting the rap game in shades of wild since his 2017 mixtape debut. Hailing from Atlanta, this maestro of mumble turned heads (and twisted tongues) with "Magnolia," making us all bounce while trying to imitate that one-of-a-kind baby voice—like a gangster Elmo on the mic. With "Die Lit" in 2018, he didn't just enter the cult of cool—he became its whimsical overlord. Then, "Whole Lotta Red" dropped in 2020, sprinkled with punk pixie dust, splitting critics down the middle like a banana. And fashion? Carti's the Kanye West of wardrobe whimsy, strutting into the scene dressed to impress, or to confuse... sometimes both.

Passing some of Austin's most popular locations and landmarks on a 13.1-mile course, that mostly goes downhill, this race is considered to have one of the fastest courses in the country.

Take A Hike

Take A Hike
Austin's mild winter means January is an excellent time to hike some of the beautiful trails surrounding the city.  Beginners will want to start on an easier path like Mayfield Nature Preserve, but avid hikers can take advantage of the River Place Nature Trail, a particularly difficult hike that will test your limits.

Enjoy Winter-Themed Cocktails Across The City

Enjoy Winter-Themed Cocktails Across The City
Warm up in the cooler evenings with a delicious winter-flavored cocktail.  Various bars have options, such as the ginger-flavored Blanche at Dumont's Down Low or Somersault's peppermint-tinged Snowball Fight.  Despite the lack of snow, enjoy the winter vibes in your glass.
