Known for its landscape of rolling hills and sparkling waterways, Austin is a state capital that prides itself on being far from ordinary. And our pet friendly hotels in Austin are the perfect home base from which to explore the city.
For those whose Saturday routine starts with a trip to their local tailgate market, head to Barton Creek Farmers' Market between 9am and 1pm to enjoy live music as you peruse the produce stands with Fido. Barton Creek was voted one of the top five farmers' markets in the country by Eating Well Magazine, so don’t miss out on sampling the farm-fresh goodies and locally prepared foods.
If a day on the water is on tap, take Fido to Zilker Park Boat Rentals on Barton Springs Road for a relaxing paddle on Lady Bird Lake—conveniently located near our Austin pet friendly hotels. Paddles and life jackets are provided for humans, but your four-legged friend will have to fend for himself if he decides to take a plunge.
For dinner, grab the leash and head to South Congress Avenue for a gourmet burger or a pulled-pork taco at Opal Divine’s. Enjoy the restaurant's casual atmosphere and dog-friendly outdoor patio while taking in the panorama of South Austin. Once the sun goes down, head back to your Austin pet friendly hotel for a good night’s rest.
