Cooler Temperatures and Cooler Events: Your Guide to Doing Winter Right22 Nov Team ATX Life Admin
Austin has so much to offer, and no matter what the temperatures decide to do, you’re sure to have an amazing time at our local events, taking in the local attractions, and experiencing the culture for yourself. The short period of time that Austin experiences colder temperatures gives you a great opportunity to:
Sip something seasonal - No matter how wild or tame your drinking palate is, there’s always a seasonal beverage that calls to you! Explore the local coffee shops for a blend of coffee and tea that only comes around a few months of the year, or head to any bars, breweries, distilleries, and pubs we have around town for something that will make you feel festive and keep you warm.
Join in on the marathon mania - The annual Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K are being held on February 16, 2020. You’ll get to run past iconic Austin sites like the UT Tower and Lady Bird Lake.
Eat all the comfort foods - From steaming bowls of ramen to plates piled high with steak fries, sample a variety of the best foods that will keep you and your belly warm throughout the season. Ramen Tatsu-Ya, Hillside Farmacy, and Emmer & Rye are some great places to check out.
Check out Free Week - Red River Cultural District’s Free Week kicks off the first week in January features 180+ local bands playing free shows at a variety of venues around Austin.
Go ice skating - Whole Foods Market in Downtown Austin doesn’t just have holiday shopping opportunities but allows you to go ice skating on the Plaza.
Game the day away - Whether you love to show off your arcade game skills or are hoping to challenge friends to a ping-pong showdown, there are venues around Austin just for you.
