No matter how hot it is, college football means fall has officially arrived. Fans all over are celebrating Saturday game day and getting into following their teams.
Whether your team is at home or away, college game day gets better with a stay at a local vacation rental. How? Here are four good ways that booking a unique home-away-from-home experience can improve game day.
1. Create a Fan Oasis
Games are better when shared with friends. For traveling fans, away trips can feel lonely. So bring buddies! Vacation home rentals sleep more people than standard, cookie-cutter hotel rooms. Plus, they have that wonderful “at home” feel for stretching out.
Top Trip Rentals suggests: Our 410 E. 6th Street location, also known as the Graeber House, has a 65-inch TV and sleeps as many as 12 people. This unique venue is nestled right in the middle of Austin’s famous nightlife and live music scene. And there’s even an indoor pool, so you can refresh after a day spent outdoors at Darryl K Royal Memorial Stadium.
Fans do football right. We pre-game it with tailgate parties. We show up for the game. Afterward, there’s always another game to watch or post-party to attend. The right vacation rental home can create a truly memorable game day experience. To make the most of college game day in Austin, you’ll want to be near the LBJ School and Texas State Capitol complex for official tailgate fun.
Top Trip Rentals suggests: Our Littlefield Lofts are located in the heart of downtown Austin. As you walk to DKR Memorial Stadium, you’ll pass Scholtz’s Beer Garten on San Jacinto and travel through tailgate alley.
When you head home, 6th Street’s famous bars are there to keep the game-day buzz alive. And perhaps you can get a glimpse that burnt-orange UT Tower glowing after a Longhorn win.
Why ruin a great Saturday by messing with traffic? Make every game-day minute count by removing unnecessary travel time from the weekend agenda. Or, at the very least, make that car time more fun. Choosing a vacation rental home after some savvy thought about game day routes skips the hassle and leads to happier football fans.
Top Trip Rentals suggests: Sadly, #ATXtraffic is a thing–even without 100,000 rabid football fans taking to the street. On home game days, I35 and MoPac (Austin’s main thoroughfares) can become parking lots.
You don’t have to actually go to the game to have a spectacular football Saturday. Why not do your home viewing up right with a weekend getaway? Booking a vacation rental home with fabulous amenities can make fans, friends, and family happy on college game day.
Top Trip Rentals suggests: Though football signals fall, Austin-area temperatures often say “summer.”
Don’t fight those warm fall Saturdays. How about watching the big game out at the lake? Why not spend the day outside, on the patio, grilling some good food, while watching college game day TV coverage?
Our Sunset Shores vacation rental homes, situated on the shores of beautiful constant-level Lake LBJ, accommodate groups who want to relax–and when the ‘Horns score, you can hear the entire lake roar!
So whether you’re visiting Austin to support an away team or a bleeding-orange Hook’em Horns Texas hometown fan, treating yourself to that game-day getaway may be the key to a perfect football Saturday.
