Darn Good Places -Daytime Activities

Best Ways to spend a day in Austin

Does Daytime need an explanation? When planning your day, I break it down into 4 categories, Morning, Day, Night and Party (late night). You are on vacation, enjoy yourself. There is plenty to do in Austin while the sun is still shining.

Examples: hotel swimming pools, lunch, parks, food trucks
