  • Downtown Sunset Kayak with 1.5M Bats!
    Welcome to Austin's #1 booked tour! I can say with confidence this is the best group on the water. Let's meet up for an epic night of kayaking. It's 4 incredible trips in one. 1st you paddle the length of downtown during the day, then we catch the sunset over the water. The bats are the main event and we end with downtown paddle at night! Add in a full moon or bright stars occasionally and this trip is one not to miss! If trip is sold out, ask if I can fit you in. Book through me because: I'm a traveler and Airbnb host as well so I know what you want out of the trip. On top of bat facts, i'll give you more freedom to kayak, make sure to take great photos of you on the tour, and make sure you meet other like minded travelers in the group who can share their tips or even join you for a night out afterwards. I've got good travel stories for days and lots of local insight to help you build out the best plan for the rest of your stay. Bad weather = full refund. You won't find a guide who tries harder to make sure you have the best night possible. You'll also be given high quality photos at the end of your trip! Need one more reason to book? My auto reply to your booking confirmation comes with my custom "Must do" in Austin link to help you plan the rest of your tri

  • Float the canyons of the Rio Grande
    Imagine floating thru the epic canyons of the Rio Grande on a full day, fully guided, fully equipped trip. The Rio is mostly flat water for a scenic adventure. The river has class I rapids that is perfect for our first timers. Come learn and/or work on your boating skills. The water levels fluctuate and can influence what boats we take: rafts (we can row you down the river or everyone paddles), canoes, or kayaks. Throughout the winter season, the river is usually not more than thigh deep. Riding in a raft with all your favorite people makes for some fun pictures. We can row you down the river in a raft or if you/some/all want to paddle raft that is a great option too. At lower water levels we like to canoe and kayak. The canoes are 2 seaters with the option to ride smaller kids in the middle. The kayaks are single or tandem sit in or sit on top and are totally lots of fun. Weather also can influence what the choice boat would be. We meet up in the morning and then drive down to the river. Included is all gear and dry bags. Please bring your own food and beverages. A cooler to put your lunch in and ice water is provided. Wear shoes you don't mind getting wet. Other things to note We will meet at 9 a.m. central time (check your clock) at the office of Big Bend Boating & Hiking Company. Pack a camera, snacks, a lunch, water bottle and big smiles for a great day

  • Wine and chocolate pairing

  • Learn to Surf on South Padre Island
    Meet me where the land meets the sea! We'll start our lesson in the sand, where I'll introduce myself and go over basic ocean safety information. We'll then practice some techniques such as popping up and balancing before making our way to the water. Once in the ocean we'll start our lesson in waist-high water, where you can feel comfortable learning to paddle into waves and standing up. We'll do this for about an hour, resting whenever you might need a break. If you have some surfing experience before this lesson, we may also paddle out to deeper water, where we will work on riding down the line and turning the board.

  • Tarot Reading w/ Mak Jagger
    VIRTUAL OPTIONS AVAILABLE Hi, I’m Mak Jagger (she/her; IG @makjaggertarot)! Featured in Forbes, Thrillist, and Travel & Leisure Magazine, I host THE original and most globally well-loved tarot experiences on Airbnb. I have recently opened my own swanky new (and VERY Instagram worthy) tarot lounge upstairs in the Ethereal Gift Collective, a luxury gift shop in the Arboretum neighborhood of ATX. Let bring you into my world of magick! The purpose of tarot is to get to truth—so that you can formulate your own answers. It’s a way to give yourself advice, I’m just the story teller guiding you on the journey. We’ll begin with an intro and discussion on tarot, and continue to an in-depth card reading to gain insight and perspective on where you are and where your would like to go.    This experience is designed to be personal but you may message me to book for small groups. The experience begins promptly at the scheduled time. Bear in mind that traffic in Austin is considerable at all times. Guests who arrive later than 15 minutes into the experience are subject to a non-refundable cancellation or additional fees for rescheduling. Pets and kids are politely declined. Not in Austin? I host a virtual Airbnb Experience that can be attended globally, or you may you may email me at makjaggertarot@gmail.com for info or to book a virtual or live reading or event in ATX.

Your guide to Texas

Welcome to Texas

This vast state — the biggest in the contiguous United States — sweeps from semi-tropical white-sand beaches to forests, rolling prairies, windswept plains, and desert sand dunes. It even has the country’s second-largest gorge: the Panhandle’s Palo Duro Canyon. Texas has 16 areas preserved by the National Park Service, ranging from Padre Island — one of the world’s only hypersaline lagoons — to the Palo Alto Battlefield, where U.S. and Mexican troops fought in 1846. Standouts include the colorful, fossil-rich Guadalupe Mountains and the cactus-studded solitude of Big Bend. The five San Antonio Missions, including the Alamo, do double duty as a World Heritage Site too.

This big-hearted state offers something for everyone, from cattle drives to cutting-edge music and gleaming modern architecture. Food highlights include BBQ, Tex-Mex, and festival wackiness like fried PB&J sandwiches. The connecting tissue? Admiration for the countryside and its folksy, slowed-down ways harking back to Texas’ farming and ranching heritage. Wherever you go, find time to sit for a spell and soak it all in.


How do I get around Texas?

Texas doesn’t mess around in terms of size. It has almost three times the landmass of the United Kingdom. Most airplane passengers land at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) or Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), which rivals Manhattan for acreage. But Texas has hundreds of other public airports too. Expect taxi service and rental cars at most terminals, but rail and bus connections can be hit-or-miss. Unless you’re staying in central Dallas, Austin, Houston, or San Antonio, you’ll want wheels to efficiently get around. Happily, the roads remain well maintained and clearly marked. Car and motorcycle buffs shouldn’t miss the 200 miles of famous Route 66 that pass through the Panhandle’s plains.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Texas?

The climate varies wildly across the state’s 268,596 square miles. But broadly speaking, spring and fall remain the best times for pleasant weather. Fall has the advantage of avoiding the peak festival crowds who flock to the state’s southern half, especially South Padre Island. March comes in like a lion with Austin’s SXSW, which celebrates the convergence of the film, music, and tech industries. April typically draws 3.5 million people to Fiesta San Antonio, an 11-day heritage bash that includes the Battle of Flowers parade. Texas doubles down on Juneteenth across the state. Autumn brings the State Fair to a Dallas park that’s a National Historic Landmark, as well as the Texas Renaissance Festival to Houston. Then the Austin City Limits music festival draws big-name acts for two weeks in October.


What are the top things to do in Texas?

Hamilton Pool Preserve

A natural spring pockets the Hill Country chaparral, creating an emerald grotto fringed by maidenhair ferns, 30 miles west of Austin. But it’s more than just a pretty swimming hole with waterfalls (depending on the season). The preserve protects the fragile canyon and animals like the endangered golden-cheeked warbler that rely on it.

Mineral Wells Fossil Park

An ancient sea deposited fossils of corals, urchins, sea lilies, and even primitive sharks here 300 million years ago — an area now 87 miles west of Dallas. This buried treasure emerged due to erosion in the city’s old landfill, closed in the early 1990s. Today paleontologists, amateur and professional, can dig here using small gardening tools and take home their finds for personal use. Note: the site has basic restrooms and no running water. Bring plenty of liquids and also an umbrella for shade.

Terlingua Ghost Town

This abandoned Victorian mining village sits between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park, 13 miles north of the U.S.-Mexican border. Once a leading producer of quicksilver, Terlingua faded after World War II. Today visitors can explore the ruins and a simple cemetery, known for its Day of the Dead celebrations. The town has a few tourist amenities, and attracts crowds for its chili cook-offs in early November and late February.
