In the hot- and red-blooded expanse of the Lone Star State, Austin is an oasis of cool, with more to do than you could fit in a ten-gallon hat. From shows and trails to sights and eats, the Texas capital bubbles with excitement and eccentricity, and Hilton Garden Inn Austin NW/Arboretum is your home base from which to drink it all in.

"In a town as creatively charged as Austin, the venues are virtually limitless, from hillsides in parks to the pavement of the Congress Avenue Bridge and from dark, smoky clubs to Victorian Gothic cathedrals," says Fodor's review of Austin.

Pull up in recently refurbished digs near "shopaholic Northwest Austin"— known locally as the Arboretum and globally as one of the best places to get designer duds. Upscale and boutique buys come highly advised at the Domain, an outdoor mall with high-end retailers.

Watch the city's steel-and-glass peaks zoom into view on your 15-minute southbound cab ride to the heart of Austin. Pedicab pilots vie for your fare on Sixth Street, ferrying you from bar to bar and blasting a variety of tunes true to the town's musical diversity. From Elephant Room jazz to Mohawk rock and big-time headliners at brand-new Emo's East, if you've got ears, you're in the right place.

If Austin's bat swarm—the largest urban Mexican free-tail colony in North America—is wintering in Monterrey, there's always the horde of grackles that mass outside Waterloo Records, where you'll find a pressing of your favorite album.

Should Austin's mild winter weather warrant shorts, you'll find hiking and biking the Greenbelt, which wraps the Colorado River, divine. Pickup ball and herds of dogs abound in Zilker Park, whereas Bartholomew and Peace Park provide the perfect place to watch your disc sail across the bluest cloudless Texan sky.
