Five of My Favorite Things to Do in Austin
As soon as summer hits, I love to do what I call an Austin Summer Triumvirate, which consists of hopping between Deep Eddy Pool for a refreshing dip in the spring-fed water, Deep Eddy Cabaret for pitchers of crisp Mexican lager, and Pool Burger for stacked burgers and strong tiki cocktails!
The new Waterloo Greenway is a beautiful green space right near the Capitol, and they're always hosting great community events, like yoga with live music on the lawn, a big Dia de los Muertos celebration, and a spectrum of performances at Moody Amphitheater.
One of my favorite unexpected things to surprise visitors with is artist James Turrell's Skyspace oculus on the University of Texas campus. The installation uses nature and light in a most peaceful, beautiful way!
One big benefit of living in Austin is that we are surrounded by swimming holes to help us cool off when the temperature rises. But some of the closest ones to town (on the Barton Creek Greenbelt) typically dry up by July when the rain subsides, so it's best to visit those in May and June!
Here in Austin, we are lucky to have some really high-quality donation-based yoga studios. I'm a regular at both Practice Yoga and Black Swan Yoga, which also features HIIT workout classes.
