A guide to summer dining, spas, cool urban escapes as well as outdoor fun, day trips and more

Whether you’re new in town or a native Austinite tracking all that’s new in your beloved hometown, taking full advantage of summer in this city is a thrilling challenge thanks to everything it has to offer. Our Summer 2021 Issue, out now, is all about adventures in Austin and beyond.

Urban explorers seeking outdoor patios, rooftop bars, decadent spa experiences, art and creative spaces will find it all right here in town. Active, outdoorsy types, too, can take their pick of local hikes and enjoy the only way to truly keep cool in Austin: hitting the lake. If you prefer to escape for the weekend, plan a quick trip to one of the nearby destinations where excellent food, drinks, shops and other adventures await.

There’s so much to love and enjoy about Austin — especially in the summertime. The only question is: where do you want to begin?
