Although the first day of fall was last week, Austin’s cooler weather just kicked in. We couldn’t be happier to explore the area wearing our long sleeves again.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate the chilly Central Texas temperatures:

  1. Enjoy fall beers! Treat yourself to more than just the typical Oktoberfest lagers and pumpkin ales.

      2. Check out a fall festival around Texas.  From antiques fairs in Round Top to pumpkin patches in Chappell Hill, there’s a festival for everyone’s taste in Central Texas and beyond.

3. Hang out at a cool coffee shop. South Congress Avenue offers plenty of good shopping, but take a break at one of its coffee shops while taking a sip of something warm.

4. Go camping. It’s time to get off-the-trodden trail and explore lesser-known campgrounds.  

5. Dine outdoors.  Enjoy all the outdoor dining options around the city without melting.
