During the summer months, Austin can get hot, but the city offers plenty of fun to beat the heat. From natural springs to movie theaters and arcades, there are plenty Austin activities to keep cool when the mercury starts rising.
Barton Springs is a 3-acre pool located in downtown Austin’s Zilker Park. The pool is fed from an underground spring with an average temperature of 70 degrees, making it the perfect place to stay cool during the summer. The pool is open seven days a week from 5 a.m. – 10 p.m., with limited hours on Thursdays for cleaning. The area surrounding the pool is grassy, with plenty of trees for shade; however, food and alcohol are not allowed. There is an admission fee to swim during the hours of 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. when a lifeguard is on duty.
If you want a more extreme way to stay cool, check out Quest ATX, Austin’s only cable wakeboard park.

The theaters show both new movies and cult classics and serves award-winning food, craft beer, and cocktails directly to your seats.
No summer is complete without a day at the arcade. With two locations in Austin, Pinballz has the largest collection of classic pinball and arcade games in Texas.
The original location opened in 2010 and was created after the owner’s personal pinball collection got too large. This location also has a restaurant and is BYOB (all adults over 21 years of age are allowed to bring one alcoholic drink in at a time). The newer and larger Lake Creek location has a mini-bowling alley, laser tag, a 7D Dark Ride Theater, and a laser maze. It also has a restaurant which serves beer, wine, and cocktails.
