If you’ve lived in Austin for only a while, you know when you think of Spring Break, the possibilities are limitless. Austin always has something going on during the entire year, whether it be music, film, or just fun things to do and see. But during the month of March, especially during Spring Break, the city is a whirlwind of activity, and this year is no exception.
The first thing that comes to anyone’s mind when considering Austin in March is South By Southwest (SXSW) , the globally acclaimed event. This year the fun runs from March 13-22. From speakers to exhibitions to fantastic films to, of course, the music. There is something for everyone.
At SXSW you can click on tabs for hotel availability, travel plans for domestic as well as international, and how to get around (shuttles, public transportation, etc).
So enjoy SXSW (you will hear many Austinites simply say “south by”) and have fun choosing your favorite artists, films, and learning about all the new technologies coming into our world.
Another big event that rolls into Austin every March is Rodeo Austin. This is something that the whole family can enjoy. “Where Weird Meets Western” is set for March 14th until the 28th. The Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo is located at 9100 Decker Lake Rd. Besides the many rodeo events such as bareback riding, steer wrestling, mutton bustin’, barrel racing, the clowns, and much more, there is the stock show, where the prize animals are on display, and also the fair and carnival. Of course, the live music is always exceptional at the rodeo. So check the date of your favorite artist’s appearance and purchase your tickets online.
Spring Break Austin: More Things To Do
Of course, Austin has so much more to do. And, much of it is not just in March – but year round! Check out this article entitled, “20 Best Things to Do in Austin, Texas” by Marina Yoveva.

If you’re looking for something really unique to do over Spring Break, you might want to try the Lake Travis Zipline Adventures. Located at 14529 Pocohontas Trail in Leander, this is the longest zipline in Texas. Kids must be at least 10 years old to participate, and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are required.
