Visiting Austin & Hill Country

Summer fun is heating up in Austin. This is the season to experience the character of one of the country's "weirdest" cities.

Barton Springs Pool offers a fun and unique way to cool off. A man-made recreational pool located in Zilker Park in Austin, Barton Springs is very popular with residents of all ages, so it's a must for visitors looking to do as the locals do. The pool gets its water from Main Barton Spring, guaranteeing it to be fresh and inviting.

Another way to get a sense of Austin character this is through some of the city's world-famous BBQ, and this summer is the perfect time. After being closed for an extended amount of time for the construction of a new smokehouse, Franklin Barbecue opens back up for business on July 8th to serve some of the best brisket, pulled pork, and ribs in Texas. Besides the renowned food, it's also been voted the best people watching restaurant in Austin. If you're heading down for lunch, make sure to get there early – the line has been known to stretch around the building.

Near downtown Austin on the banks of the Colorado River, the Rainey Street Historic District offers some more unique Austin character. It's a formerly tranquil neighborhood where houses have been transformed into bars and lounges, turning porches into patio areas and backyards into beer gardens. Must see spots include Lustre Pearl, Clive Bar, and Bar 96, each with its own theme to create a uniquely friendly experience.

On June 28th, the 12th Annual Keep Austin Weird Festival + 5K invites you to celebrate what it means to be an Austinite. Residents and visitors flock to the Long Center in Austin in the weirdest costume they can put together to immerse themselves in the eccentricities of Austin culture. The fun comes in the form of vendor and artist booths and food trucks, while live bands provide the soundtrack and festivalgoers run, dance, prance, and skip their way to the finish line in the world’s slowest 5K, which makes more than 12 party stops.

If it’s more traditional fun you’re looking for, the Round Rock Express invite you to enjoy America’s Pastime at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock, through the end of August. The stadium is known as one of the finest stadiums of its size in the nation, drawing people from Llano to Luling to Franklin, to see the action as the future MLB stars of the Express battle the best teams in Minor League Baseball.
