Things to do with Dad this Father’s Day in Austin (Part One)

  |     |   Family, Food, Outdoors

With beautiful weather to complement a great day with Dad, the city of Austin sets the perfect backdrop for a memorable Father’s Day.  We polled our family at Juniper Springs apartments here in Austin about their plans for the big day.

Below you will find some ideas that you might want to put on your calendar for Father’s Day or any time with Dad this summer.

Perhaps we will see you out and about as well?  In the meantime, we wish all the dads at Juniper Springs a very memorable Father’s Day.

First, Grab a Gift & Get Ready for a BBQ

Here’s a perfect gift to give Dad for Father’s Day. This Taste of Texas Beer & BBQ gift basket from Hazelton’s Gift Baskets will please the whole gang.

Grill Set – Included in a fully-lined aluminum case is a complete set of BBQ tools, grilling skewers, corn holders, basting brush, and salt & pepper shakers, too!

–    Hardbite Smokin' BBQ Chips
–    East Shore Dipping  
–    Bruges Classic Chocolate Covered Blueberries Pillow  
–    Braswell's Great On Anything BBQ sauce with Vidalia Onion  
–    Campi Verdi di Toscana Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP  
–    Campi Verdi di Toscana Extra Virgin Olive Oil  
–    Grant & Mein's Fine Spice Company Montreal Steak Spice  

Take Your Pop and Your Pup to the Doghouse

Here’s a perfect place for those with or without a four-legged friend to have a cold one on a hot day.  The Dog House Drinkery has a bar with lots of local brews from which to choose, and a nice wine selection as well. TV screens wrap throughout the establishment for your sports-minded friends.  Outdoors, the 10 sf off-leash area is not just a place for your pup to play, it has a ‘dog park monitor’ so you can have the best of all worlds on your next day off.    

Meet Him at the Museum

Thanks to the Austin Museum Partnership, you and your family can enjoy a very special day at your favorite museum in Austin.  No matter which one is your favorite, or perhaps one you have never visited before, there will be free exhibitions and activities for all to enjoy. Enjoy dozens of Austin Area Museums for free in a celebration of art, culture, history, music, nature, science, and play!

Laugh, A Lot!

Just one night at ColdTowne Theater will leave you laughing for days to come.

ColdTowne Theater is Austin’s main stage for alternative comedy, featuring the funniest comedians in Central Texas. Nationally recognized acts perform here as well as the best local performers. ColdTowne Theater also runs a conservatory offering the most fun acting, improv and sketch classes Austin has to offer.

Head to the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail

Located in the heart of our city is one of the community’s favorite hike and bike paths to enjoy year-round.  Our research found that more than 2.6 million visitors visit its 10-mile trail system a year, and with good reason. The lush and well-maintained path meanders along the water’s edge where one will pass by the city’s skyscrapers, ball fields, neighborhoods, and other cultural attractions.  

Pack a Picnic

With our beautiful weather in sight, pack a picnic and head to one of the many parks and lakes in and around the heart of Austin.  Add in a hike to complete the day. We always enjoy taking selfies at the sculpture garden at Zilker Park. Another top spot for a picnic with a view is a trek up Mount Bunnell that showcases super views of Lake Austin and beyond.
