Summer Fun: Conquering the Coastal Bend

If you're a fan and/or follower of Texas bicycle road rides, there's a good chance Conquer the Coast, the 10-/25-/65-mile ride that happens annually along the Texas Coast is on your radar. The ride happens September 20, only two days before the official last day of summer, and not a bad time to plan a trip to the coast. Read More | Comment »

Summer Fun: A [Revised] Guide to Floating the River

Considering that 50% of my time over the next five months will arguably be spent fully or partially submerged in a spring, lake, river, or pool, I have a lot to share about any number of Austin’s outdoor activities involving water. Read More | Comment »

Summer Fun: Obviously, It's Not Summer Without Them…

Each year, we make decisions about the focus of Summer Fun, where to draw the line, etc. We can't include everyone. But that doesn't make the classics any less worthy of our, or more importantly, your attention. Here are 10 perennial hotspots every newly minted and cynical ol' Austinite should know about. But, shhhhh, don't tell anyone… Read More | Comment »

Summer Fun: Some Like It Hot Cold & Dreary

Sixties films were wild about sandy frolics starring Gidget, Elvis, Frankie and Annette. None of that beach bunny nonsense for us: When summer hits, we like to snap the shades shut, burrow under blankets, and tuck in with a foul-weather downer of a movie. Read More | Comment »

Summer Fun: A Cheeseburger at the Blue Hole

Barton Springs: Love the lawn, fear the water. Wimberley’s Blue Hole, there I’m a duck. We made it out three times last summer, the final one with our beloved Aunt Nancy, who died during SXSW in March. Four people killed in a hit and run, a dear friend and SX crew chief lost her father suddenly that weekend, and my wife’s aunt – Nancy Varnum – never woke up. Read More | Comment »

Summer Fun: Find Yourself in a Swimsuit

Every year, it's as inevitable in springtime as income taxes – the blooming realization that you'll need, as my grandmother put it, "a swimming suit."

Summer Fun: Jean Grae on the San Marcos River

None of my friends like floating the San Marcos River. Objectively, I get it. It’s a short float, a half hour to 45 minutes, with little to no turbulence, and a whole lot of prickly river weeds guaranteed to wrap around the ankles of unsuspecting swimmers. Read More | Comment »

Summer Fun: Texas Surf, Turf, and Tequila
