“I love taking a quick road trip out in the Texas Hill Country to Jester King Brewery. Always an entertaining day with great tastings of their brews like the Black Metal Imperial Stout and Wytchmaker Rye IPA.”

“I love how and where this graffiti park exists in the Castle Hill area of Austin. The entire idea of this park is inspiring on so many levels.”

Barton Springs

Take a free dip at the Barton Springs Pool before 8 am and after 8pm

“As a local, Barton Springs feels like a mini-staycation. After a brisk walk or bike around Town Lake, the iconic swimming hole is my favorite spot to cool off.”

Central Texas BMX
