Austin, Texas

Did you know that Austin, Texas, is also known as Bat City? This weeks featured rental property in Austin is in honor of the bat I found hanging in our window at 3 am last weekend. Halloween, my favorite holiday, is right around the corner too so here we go!

From March to November folks congregate on the Anne W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge at sunset to watch thousands of bats emerge. The bats first colonized here in the early 80’s. They were feared by the public at first but the city has learned to embrace the colony and all the insect populations they help control. Click here to learn more about this spectacle.

This home is on East Cesar Chavez Street in Austin, Texas. It’s blocks from 6th street and close to the the Rainey Street Historic District. The exposed beams, ventilation, and flooring in this Austin home give it a modern appeal and remind me of a brewery we visit often here in Ohio.

  • Internet, parking, washer and dryer

One of the reasons I fell in love with my husband was his passion for traveling. As a stay at home mother and stepmother, I look forward to vacations just as much as the working man. Traveling can be exhausting so I've dedicated this blog to share my own experiences and make your next trip as relaxing as possible.
