Visiting Austin & Hill Country

Full of activity all year round, Austin is at its most lively during the summer. It’s the perfect time of year to delve into the city’s vibrant arts and cultural scene, explore countless iconic attractions, and taste some of the flavors setting Austin cuisine apart from the pack. Best of all, this season’s sunshine and warm weather have the people of ATX and surrounding communities like Blanco, Georgetown, and La Grange preparing to host more special events, festivals, and activities than any other time of year.

Just why do they say everything is bigger in Texas? Answer questions like that while finding a sense of Lone Star State history and heritage at Austin attractions like the Texas State Capitol, the Lyndon B. Johnson Library & Museum, the Austin Nature & Science Center and the Austin Museum of Art.

Taste some of the best brisket, pulled pork, and ribs around Texas by stopping into Franklin Barbecue. If you're heading down for lunch, make sure to get there early – the line has been known to stretch around the building.

Summertime in Texas can get a little muggy, so why not cool off with a swim? There are more than a few ways to splash around in Austin. Check out Hamilton Pool, Barton Springs Pool, and Deep Eddy Pool. Or, if you’re unafraid to shed your clothing, check out Hippie Hollow Park. Lady Bird Lake is also right downtown, and this season’s weather is as right for a lazy float as it is for sailing, kayaking, and canoeing.

Jump into LakeFest 2015, August 7th through 9th. LakeFest, in its 24th year, is held at Lake Lyndon B. Johnson, just northwest of the Austin area near Marble Falls. Lake LBJ becomes a quarter-mile course for drag boat racing, and the festivities also feature food, games, and a live entertainment.

Embrace what’s left of summer by spending a day at the ballpark enjoying America’s Pastime. Austin may not have an MLB team of its own, but baseball fans can watch the future big leaguers of the Round Rock Express swing for the fences at Dell Diamond in Round Rock. Check the schedule during your Hill Country visit – the MiLB season goes through the first week of September.

On October 2nd through 4th, and then again on the 9th through 11th, music lovers from all over the world descend upon Austin’s Zilker Park for the 2015 Austin City Limits Music Festival.

Then, October 29th through November 5th, it’s the movie buffs’ turn. The 2015 Austin Film Festival is an annual conference held in Austin. The 2015 AFF showcases new, feature-length films like Growing Up Baumbach: A Tribute to Noah Baumbach’s 20 Years in Film, plus special events, seminars, and more.
