5 Apartments in Austin to Beat the Heat

Planning to look into some good apartments  in Austin, Texas for a trip to the live music capital of the world? Austin receives plenty of tourists, especially during the two mega music festivals that take place in the city: the Austin City Limits and South by Southwest. If you are one of those tourists or if you are traveling for any other reason, then you will naturally want to have a safe place to stay. 

The Texas weather can get pretty heated. In technical terms, Austin is known for having a humid subtropical climate, which means long hot summers and mild winters. People visiting the city between July and August will have to endure temperatures around 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) several days in a row.

The best way to avoid the heat is to find a place that does it all for you. With that said, here are some of the best locations in Austin, Texas for whiling away the hot weather. These places have been selected according to the summer amenities they offer, customer service, and strategic location.
