Work off all the vegan ice cream you just ate at Sweet Ritual with a day pass to Austin Bouldering Project! A very popular hang just around the corner from Friends & Allies Brewery and Dimension Gallery's awesome sculpture gardens! 

Forbidden Fruit
An Austin Sketch Fest sponsor and Austin's best adult store! Take an afternoon to walk around the whole North Loop district with Workhorse Bar (dive), Tigress Pub (cocktails), Monkeywrench books (anarchist), vintage shops and more. 

Swimming

Barton Springs
this is the famous one- beautiful, cold AF water in the middle of the city 

Deep Eddy
A spring fed swimming pool slightly warmer than Barton Springs, still v cold water 

The Greenbelt  
a chain of trails and parks around the city with tons of swimming holes
(We recommend Sculpture Falls or Twin Falls which do require medium hikes to get to the water but worth it.)
