Cool Things to Do in Austin, TX

  |     |   Local Events, Summer, Things to Do

As the summer continues to heat-up, we’re looking for new ways for all of us to cool off in and around at our apartments in Austin. Below you will find a few ways to have fun and contribute to your community as well.

FLOATING CINEMA

Remember drive-in movies?  Been to one lately?  Here is fun thing to do in Austin with your family in tow.  Mark your calendar for September 23, 2020 as this innovative company launches the all new Floating Cinema.

According to their website, you need to pre-reserve your boat that holds up to 8 people.  The company has set aside up to two dozen so act quickly.  They expect to have a variety of family-friendly movies and when you sign-up they will let you know ahead of time as to what to expect.  Good-old fashion popcorn and beverages will be available for sale before you head out to the water.

Here’s a real fun video of what a floating cinema looks like and it was filmed in Houston; take a look now!  And be sure to get your tickets soon than later!

 AUSTIN DRIVE IN MOVIES

Moments ago, we got you excited about outdoor movies.  We could not let this news post go by without offering you details about where to see more movies in Austin within a socially distant setting.  Check out the line-up of movies at the Starlite Drive-In!

Right in the heart of Austin, and a short drive from Juniper Springs apartments, you and your date can pull up to this mini outdoor theater to take in popular indie films or some of your favorites from times gone by.

PADDLE UP TO PALLET POP

OK, so we are lovin’ this new thing to do in Austin.  It is touted as ‘the world’s first floating popsicle stand,’ and you can float your boat or kayak on Lady Bird Lake any weekend this summer to check it out! In addition to this just being a cool idea, it has a super cool background. 

The owner got laid off due to Covid-19, so he dabbled around in his yard and built a floatable pallet.  Once out on the Lake, he thought of the idea to bring popsicles to the peeps.  And today, it is a brand-new business fulfilling the income he once had before this brilliant idea was launched just weeks ago.

SUMMER VOLUNTEERATHON 

If you are half-way through the summer and have yet to give back some time to your community, this is a great “feel good” way to do so.  Now in its 2nd year, Generation SERVE continues to offer ways for you and your friends to volunteer in and around Austin through the end of August.
