Get Outside in Austin

When I first moved to Austin, one of the things that surprised me most was the landscape and geography. Austin is an outdoors town and not only because of all the sunshine but because of all the water, nature, hiking, biking and beyond.

Examples: Parks, neighborhood walks, hiking, biking, art and golf
