Congress Ave Bridge kayak tour...Must do!

We loved this tour! After a hot, hot day, it was great to be on the water. Our tour guide, Tabitha, was fantastic. We kayaked around the area and she shared interesting facts about the lake and the skyline in Austin. Seeing the bats fly out was incredible...nothing gross or scary about it!!!

Senior kayakers!

We enjoyed the trip, I had seen the bats from the bridge, but much more impressive from beneath the bridge. Stephen was a fun, friendly, knowledgeable guide. It was a lot of fun, nice warm water, and a gentle current. Definitely will go again.

BEST Kayak Experience EVER!

Very informative not just of Lady Bird Lake and the bats, but helpful telling us other things to enjoy in Austin and the surrounding area. They really looked out for us, made sure we had the best view, and took their time. We were never rushed to do anything!

Cody was an incredible, energetic, charismatic, sweetheart of a kayaking guide. He took my mom and I around Lady Bird Lake and made sure we were both comfortable, having fun, and really getting to see the sites. We had such a great time. I highly recommend it.

The Jackalope Located on what locals call Dirty Sixth this bar is going to be part of any memorable, or forgotten, night. This bar features dancing platforms on the bars to show off your best moves. More importantly however, this bar has a recreation of an oversized Jackalope for your basic social media needs and memorable photo opportunities. 2.Rain on 4th This bar is my personal favorite. From the iconic dance floor that is always packed to the ample outdoor space…

2021 Remaining Austin Music Festivals

Austin is full of music festivals and before the year is out the city has several great opportunities left. We have all genres of music for every kind of music fan. If you’re interested here are some good upcoming options: 1. Austin City Limits Music Festival This music festival is an Austin staple and one that you absolutely need to experience. This is the first year back post quarantine and the line up looks amazing! The event is going to be over the course of two weekends in early October. One of my favorite things to do for this event is to actually take a paddleboard or kayak and listen from the water for free. 2. iHeartCountry Music Festival This is a fun event that is relatively affordable in terms of other music festivals. The event this year is at…
