Getting to Austin

For those of you who have decided to fly in, Kathy Purdy of Cold Climate Gardening, has written up her tips on finding the cheapest fare here in her guest post How to Find Cheap Air Fares.

From the Airport

From the Austin-Bergstrom airport (ABIA) cab and shuttle service to and from your hotel is available via Super Shuttle and other providers. For sightseeing convenience (there’s a lot to do in Austin!), you will probably want to rent a car. If you are staying with a local blogger, she or he will try to arrange a personal pick-up and drop-off at the airport.

If you are driving to Austin on Saturday, we encourage you to meet us at the Wildflower Center (click here for map) that morning and then caravan with us for the rest of the day. Plan to arrive at the Wildflower Center by 8:45 a.m. to give yourself ample time to park and walk the short trail into the Main Courtyard, where we will gather at 9 a.m. for our tour.
