Summer is speeding by. Whether you’re kicking back at home and enjoying residential amenities or hitting the road, it’s important to squeeze as much fun as you can out of the remaining days. Here’s a list of family-friendly activities in Austin you can check out in July.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Come in from the heat and enjoy a cool family flick at Kids Camp. Bonus: All ticket proceeds go to local nonprofit organizations.
Local Farmers Markets. Stroll the many vendors selling fresh produce and unique products at a farmers market near you. See something new? Don’t hesitate to give it a try.
Austin Public Library. The Latin American writer Jorge Luis Borges said, “I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.” While Amazon is king, there’s still something very special about going to your local library. Must-see: The beautiful Austin Central Library downtown.
