Walk to ACL Fest From Your Austin Apartment!

We all know ACL is one of the best of the fests and people come from all over the world to see these amazing lineups come to life.  What if you only had to travel out your front door to have access to this music/food/adventure paradise?  Check out these places right next to Zilker Park that could make Drake’s set your backyard soundtrack.  Or hey, loud music and crowds not your thing?  Think of the revenue potential for renting out your place for those two weekends!  Can you say hello Airbnb affording you a luxurious vacay?  Walking distance to the venue is a prime selling point for those money making weekends.

Our list is ranked from most expensive to cheapest, so either dream it up, call Daddy Warbucks, grab a roommate or scroll to the bottom (we won’t judge).

1. Across the river from Zilker but also right at the cusp of downtown, this place is the top of the line luxury. It has a cinema room, billiard room, dog/jogging trail, and great roommate floor plans.  Garden tubs, wood floors, skylounge and rooftop pool, concierge, and a recycling center makes luxury an at-home reality.
