My husband, 22 year old son, and I are going to Austin this Augsut for two nights, three days. I'm looking for some great suggestions about where we should stay and things to do. I've looked at Radisson near the Congress Ave. bridge, the Embassy Suites on the other side of the bridge, the Hampton Inn downtown, the W, and even San Jose. What location is best for walking to everything? We want to explore 6th Street and the SoCo areas. My husband wants to bike the trail around Lady Bird Lake. I like to shop, and we all love music and great food and drinks. I'm 59, and my husband is 61, but we're both in good shape and enjoy travel. We're going to rent a car and then drive from Austin to San Antonio. Yes, I know it's going to be hot in August, but that's the only time we can plan this trip. Thanks for ANY ideas!
