As restrictions begin to lift and we find ourselves able to do more and go places, surprisingly we find ourselves looking back on the days at home with warmth and soft regret! We may have worried about having enough toilet paper to make it through the pandemic, but the timeout we all endured allowed us to spend more time with the ones that really mattered. We learned new math from the children we were supposed to be teaching, we had the time to read bedtime stories every night, and for those of us with infants, we didn’t miss out on any of the first milestones! If your travels have you heading in the direction of Austin, Texas and a stay in one of our soothing retreats, this guide to isolated Austin activities you can participate in will allow you the opportunity to experience those wonderful family moments all over again!
Take a Hike on the Butler Hike & Bike Trail
While you won’t exactly have this colorful trail that follows along the banks of Lady Bird Lake all to yourself, it will still feel as if the lake and trail only belongs to you and your family! Just be sure to follow the arrows; this trail is one way now! If it’s still a little too crowded out there for your tastes, you can rent a kayak, paddleboard, or canoe at any of the little “beach” shops along the way. The Austin Paddle Shack, Epic SUP, and Texas Rowing Center are a few examples!
Sunset on Mt. Bonnell
There’s no bad place from which to view a stunning Austin sunset, but if you want to get away from the crowds while you enjoy unobstructed views, a picnic atop Mt. Bonnell may be your best bet! Offering the best seats in the house, your simple feast will be enhanced by the sights and sounds that accompany an ordinary Tuesday evening in Austin.
Visit the Blanton Museum of Art
How can a visit to a museum be an isolated activity, you ask? Simple! This visit is a virtual one that can be experienced without ever having to put on pants, and it won’t cost you a penny.
