Outdoor Summer Bucket List For Austin, TX

Picture of Mira Milla
Updated: 9 February 2017
It’s official. Texas is in full-fledged summer mode. If you’re a Texan, you know that when summer comes rolling, so does the heat. Although Texas is known for being hot for the majority of the year, its summers are on a different level. Lucky for Austin, there are a lot of places to go and still enjoy the outdoors without being too overwhelmed by the heat. We curated a few Instagram photos of spots in or around Austin for you to check out before summer is over.
