Bike adventures are a favorite activity for us on vacations. We recently got a bike rack so that we can take our cruiser bikes on driving vacations to places like Austin and Galveston. In addition, I have been able to visit some of the best urban bike paths, such as the awesome trails in Minneapolis. While bike share programs or bike shop rentals are fun as well, it is definitely a fantastic perk for hotels to offer bikes. It is something that will solidify our decision for a hotel or vacation rental stay. So, we loved our recent visit to Seattle when we stayed at the Maxwell Hotel where bikes are complimentary on a first-come-first-served basis. Read more here.
This article from CNN.com definitely jumped out at me as it is an amenity that we seek out now. And I was happy to see Heywood Hotel in Austin on the list as it has been on my should-stay list for some time. We love East Austin!
