Summer’s Here, But Never Fear! Activities in Austin

Summer’s Here, But Never Fear! We know how you can enjoy the outdoors and beat the Austin Area heat this summer.

 

Summer is officially here, and with that comes long days of high Texan temperatures and an overworked (and possibly underpaid) AC unit. Here at Covenant Heating and Air, we suggest that you conserve some energy and crank your AC Unit to 82 degrees and head out of the house to these great Austin attractions.

Located about an hour south of Austin, the Schlitterbahn Water Park and Resort is a great place to cool off this summer. The park has over seventy acres of water rides, river adventures, and green spaces that can keep you and your friends or family occupied for days. Or if you're looking for something more local try Hawaiian Falls in Pflugerville!

If you are more interested in natural attractions, the Austin area is known for its natural pools and springs. One of the most famous of these is Barton Springs Pool. Fed by underground springs, the temperature of the pool is between 60-70 degrees even on the hottest summer days. It is the perfect place to cool off when the temperature starts heating up.

The lakes in and around Austin are another great draw. Several local businesses offer daily kayak and paddleboard rentals. They will even help you decide if paddle boarding on Lady Bird Lake, Lake Austin, or Lake Travis is right for you.

In the evenings, when the weather cools down slightly, there are great outdoor live events like Unplugged at the Grove. Underneath pecan trees at the Shady Grove there is a free featured artist every Thursday night. This is Austin’s longest running free concert series, so you know that the lineup is guaranteed to be good.

Austin is a city of foodies. All across town there are restaurants with great outdoor patios where you can sit and enjoy the evening. Places like Contigo Austin and Justine’s boast beautiful outdoor dining areas that are perfect for enjoying dinner and drinks al fresco.

While the Austin area offers a myriad of ways to ignore and enjoy the blistering heat this summer, we know that the most important part of the summer is you and your family’s comfort.
