Too warm out for your favorite winter activities? Try these instead

Welcome to Austin, where it’s 80+ degrees on Dec. 28. If today’s possibly record-setting heat is cramping your winter style, fear not: Here are five warm-weather alternatives to keep you busy until temperatures cool down enough to pull the sweaters back out.

Too warm to lace up some skates and glide across the ice? Try a dip in Barton Springs Pool or head out to Lady Bird Lake instead.

Instead of showing off your cute new boots, think summer style and treat yourself to a pedicure.

Wish you could be sipping hot cocoa? How about some ice cream or a frosty margarita?

If you just can’t help but wear your favorite sweater, head indoors to a cool movie theater and check out one of these films generating Oscar buzz.

Longing for a cozy meal by the fire? Leave your jacket at home and grab a meal outside instead (maybe wait until the sun goes down).
