Euphoria Music Festival

One of the top things to do in Austin in April is the Euphoria Music Festival at Carson Creek Ranch. This festival is from April 6th-9th and features popular acts like Pretty Lights, Zeds Dead, and Wiz Khalifa. The ranch hosting the event is one of the oldest ranches still operating in Texas, and it spans over twenty beautiful acres. This event is also located close to our southwest Austin apartments, so you always have a place to sleep after a busy night of dancing.

Hamilton Pool

Another thing to do is to visit the Hamilton Pool Preserve. With its hiking trails and glimmering water, this is the place to be when you want to enjoy the outdoors. Perfect for everyone, this is a great place to kick off spring and enjoy the sunshine. Call in advance to book your spot! Grab some friends and a towel, and head to Hamilton Pool for a relaxing day enjoying Austin's natural beauty.

Sports Games

Are you a live sports fan? There are many games going on in Austin this April! The Austin Spurs have a game at Cedar Park Center versus the Sioux Falls Skyforce, and there are also many Texas Stars games scheduled. There's even a fan appreciation night for the Texas Stars versus San Antonio Rampage game. Built in 2009, the center includes six concession stands and three bar areas for the comfort of guests.

Monster Jam
