If you follow along on my Instagram, then I am sure you saw that I road tripped down to Austin a few weeks ago for ACL with some of super close (and fellow blogger) friends Amanda, Dede, and Emily! I will be honest, I don’t know if we enjoyed the actual festival more, or our Homeaway house! It was absolutely PERFECT for our crew– nestled in the trees we felt so secluded and peaceful, yet we were less than a mile from Zilker Park where all the ACL action was.
When traveling with groups I usually prefer a house vs. a hotel because everyone can always be together hanging out. Some of my favorite memories during my trips with friends are just all hanging out in the living room or kitchen, or having coffee in the mornings. I am sure you remember our Palm Springs trip we took in May, where we had over 10 girls together in our house, and that was one of the most memorable trips I’ve ever taken!
This was actually my first year at ACL and it was such a blast! I will be honest, I am not a huge festival/crowds person so I was curious to see what I would think about ACL since there are over 75,000 people there. However, we had access to Homeaway backstage tent which was so nice to be able to hang out at between the shows we went to go see– and also to have a backstage view during some of the concerts!
During our stay I actually had a ton of people ask about the exact property we stayed at– you can check it out and book it for yourself here.
**Thank you so much to Homeaway for partnering with us on this post! As always, all opinions are my own.**
