Somehow, it is December already. Paddle boarding on Town Lake is giving way to warming up with hot cocoa, and Zilker Park is already lit for this year’s Trail of Lights. While 2020 has been far from normal, closing out the year with some familiar festivities might be just what we need to start off 2021 on the right foot. To get your celebration started, we’ve compiled some of the area’s best offerings for a 2020 Christmas in Austin. Continue Reading →

Austin is awesome – that secret has long been out. Between the many live music venues, artsy streets of downtown, the vibrant South Austin district, and the eclectic food scene, there is no shortage of excitement here. But just outside the city, and even threaded throughout it, mother nature has some incredible offerings of her own. Austin’s outdoor spaces perfectly compliment the city life, and allow visitors and locals alike countless ways to escape into refreshing waterways and dense greenery.

Many of us are still adjusting to the lifestyle of working from home and putting our social lives on pause. Our living rooms have turned into our gyms and our kitchen tables have become work stations. Let’s be honest, the most fun some of us are having is going to the grocery store twice a month. It can be really difficult to find a good work-life balance when our homes and our workspaces are morphed into one. It’s important that we take time out of our days to unwind and have some fun. So, we’ve come up with a few recommendations for some entertainment that we think you’ll love.

Since our last blog post regarding the COVID-19 virus, from March 13, 2020, we have seen the #socialdistancing phenomenon emerge, a recommendation to limit gatherings to 50 people and then to 10 people, and now we just have to stay inside. We’ve seen the closure of “non-essential” businesses across the country and already, we are seeing business closures and grocery store droughts happening across Austin. The City of Austin recently prohibited gatherings of over 10 people inside and outside (with the exception of governmental, educational, and medical spaces) and sit-ins at restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. Businesses are limited to providing to-go services only. Because Austin is a major hub for the food and drink industry, especially during the SXSW season, local businesses are suffering more than ever. As Austinites, we want to help as much as possible.
