Hello Austin and HELLO SPRING!

Now that it is officially spring, it is time to get rid of your winter blues and set your sights on all things sunny and warm weather! We’ve gathered some of our favorite springtime activities in Austin that are the perfect mixture of family-friendly, outside fun, and relaxing!

Zilker Metropolitan Park is considered to be one of Austin’s most-loved parks and it’s easy to see why. This park features a variety of recreational activities that are perfect for the spring weather.

With plenty of room to spread out Zilker is one of the best places to soak up the spring sun. Bring your pup and enjoy an afternoon at the park. The park features 5 volleyball courts – great for family and friends.

I don’t know about you, but one thing I love about the weekends is shopping at one of the farmers’ markets around town. I mean who doesn’t love the produce from local farmers, prepared foods, artisan goods, and music.

Regardless of where you are located in Austin, there is surely a weekend market near you. Come by yourself or with a friend as you sip, stroll and shop all things local food! 

Treaty Oak’s 28-acre ranch in Dripping Springs Texas is the perfect afternoon spot to soak up the sun and enjoy delicious cocktails and even better BBQ. Treaty Oak Distilling offers a little something for everyone. Guests can book a tour and tasting that lasts an average of 45 minutes, enjoy weekend brunch, stop by for a single cocktail, or spend the afternoon listening to live music with family and friends.
