Things To Do In Austin Archives - 365 Things to Do in Austin, TX

The beauty of living in Austin is that you don’t have to go far to feel worlds away. One of our favorite escapes is  Hyatt Regency Lost Pines & Spa, a gorgeous 405-acre property on the banks of the Lower Colorado River between Austin and Bastrop. It’s just a 20-minute drive to paradise!

And now the resort is embracing the “staycation” trend and offering a ton of—and we mean like endless—activities to entice families to bail on city life for a few days give ourselves a much-deserved break. They’ve just announced its lineup that offers everything from outdoor survival skill classes, moonlight stand-up paddle board tours of Lake Bastrop, and special rates for horseback rides!  

Younger guests can also take part in the “Pony Trail Ride Adventure,” an abbreviated trail ride experience where children learn about horses while being led side-by-side by an experienced handler. Trail rides are $85 per person, and the “Pony Trail Ride Adventure” costs $45.

Led by a naturalist with the LCRA, the one-hour survival class will teach children the basics of outdoor survival skills including fire building, water filtration, shelter building, edible plants and insects, cordage and knot tying, as well as wilderness first aid. The organization will also feature “Extreme Teen Challenges” where teenage guests and their parents can take part in some of the LCRA’s most daring activities including zip lining at Zip Lost Pines, rock climbing, and gladiator challenges.

A new moonlight stand up paddle board tour of the nearby Lake Bastrop is an amazing experience. As the resort is directly connect to the Colorado River, guests can take the “Kayak the Colorado” excursion in which they are led by a guide who discusses the local scenery, wildlife, and foliage of the area, or enjoy the “Sunset Raft Trip” tour which takes place at dusk when local animals are most likely to be seen in their natural habitat.

Additionally, the resort will provide a jam-packed itinerary of family-friendly spring break activities including tractor-drawn hay rides, family movie nights, magic shows, an inflatable bounce house, glow-in-the-dark putt-putt and glow dance parties, nightly s’mores by the firepit, and scavenger hunts, as well as arts and crafts sessions with everything from slime making to tie-dying shirts. It’s camp for everyone! Families can also take part in friendly competition with lawn bowling tournaments, volleyball and soccer games, as well as several giant yard games including Jenga, Connect 4, chess, and more.

Kids and their parents will also get a chance to meet the resort’s mascots, including two Texas longhorns, an American mustang, miniature horses, and alpacas.   

As always, guests can relax at the on-site Crooked River Water Park. The water park features an activity pool with a sandy beach for building sand castles, a 1,000-foot lazy river, and two-story water slide. It also includes a splash pad for children and an adults-only section with a relaxing pool and whirlpool.

The resort also provides Camp Hyatt, a kid-friendly program that introduces young travelers to the Lone Star State. While children are enjoying a fun-filled time with arts and crafts, games, and sports, parents can enjoy a round-of golf at Wolfdancer Golf Club or escape to total relaxation with customized treatments at the on-site Spa Django.

Hopscotch — a new, uniquely curated immersive art experience created by local entrepreneurs Nicole Jensen and Hunter Inman — is debuting in Austin in February as an interactive pop-up located at 6100 Airport Blvd. From February 14 through March 31, Hopscotch: Light and Sound will feature 13 distinctive installations and showcase works from a variety of local Austin artists, as well as a selection of national and international artists. 

“I’ve always been very driven by the idea that a uniquely curated event can connect and inspire the people that attend it.”   said co-founder Nicole Jensen.  “We’re thrilled to announce Hopscotch and invite the public to experience this exhibit.  To have a platform that allows us to showcase the works of talented immersive artists is something we’re really proud of and excited about.”

Each room in the 10,000 square foot space contains a different exhibit with colorful design elements from LED lights to live videos and music. Hopscotch is constructed by various artists,  the majority of which are Austin-based. Every art activation within the project requires participation from guests, and Hopscotch: Light and Sound invites guests to explore the surreal surroundings in a playful manner. 

Hopscotch’s 13 individual installations include: Paint by RGB Wall, curated by Jared Ficklin and Joey Ficklin (Argo Design) from Austin, TX; Infinity Boxes, curated by Matt Elson from Los Angeles, California; Mujō, curated by Kevin Reilly (Vurvo Collective) from Austin, TX; Gemini 6B, curated by Mickey Delp from Austin, TX; Thunder Lightning curated by Nate Culpepper and Stacy Wheeler (The Balloon Collective) from Austin TX; Cloud Therapy curated by ANGRY CLOUD + DESCND from Brooklyn, NY/Austin, TX; Spirits curated by Barna Kantor, Jerome Martinez, Lisa B. Woods (Dadageek) from Austin, TX; Olya curated by Omnia Rosia Design from Kyiv, Ukraine; Hifi God curated by Jerome Morrison from Austin, TX; a Virtual Reality Experience; and Matrix, Experience Over Things and Deep Eddy Ball Pit, all three curated by Hopscotch from Austin, TX. 

Interactive experiences range from controlling the clouds and weather via balloons to painting with light through an infrared brush by hand. Olya, presented by the only international artist, invites viewers into an immersive space of complicated multidimensional structures and light. Infinity Boxes by Matt Elson uses color, lights, and mirrors to construct beautiful boxes that draw viewers in; it’s an optical illusion project that asks visitors to take a closer look at human perception and social interaction, much like the public’s relationship to social media.  

“We’re excited to bring together this talented group of artists and to help them bring their concepts to life,” said Hunter Inman, co-founder of Hopscotch. “This type of experiential art is a perfect fit for the vibrant Austin community that is always looking for a unique and interactive experience.” 

Inman discovered his passion for building and creating after receiving his MBA from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland and switching his career in finance to focus on technology, start-ups and other entrepreneurial efforts. Since 2012, he’s been in Austin where he helped found software design and consulting firms before co-founding Hopscotch with Nicole Jensen. Jensen studied art and business at CMU  and has extensive experience in the corporate event planning, sales and hospitality worlds. She launched Austin Tour Company in 2015, creating a brand and business that highlights Austin in a way locals want to experience and are proud of. The duo joined forces to create Hopscotch in 2018.

Hours of operation for Hopscotch are 4 to 11 p.m. on Fridays, 1 to 11 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 – 8pm on Sundays. Additional hours and dates will be added. Tickets are $23 for ages 13 and up, $15 for children ages 4-12, and children 3 and under are free.  Hopscotch is 18+ after 7:00pm.  . Hopscotch is located at 6100 Airport Blvd, Austin, TX 78752. For this exhibit, Hopscotch has collaborated with local artists, collaboratives, non-profits and creative brands like Deep Eddy Vodka and neighboring Brewtorium. 

Following the limited Austin pop-up series, Hopscotch will be opening in downtown San Antonio for a permanent, new exhibition in late summer 2019 and is set to feature different San Antonio-based artists. More details will be announced at a later date. For more information on Hopscotch and to purchase tickets, visit letshopscotch.com.

 

We are quickly approaching the point of knowing whether or not this year’s resolutions are going to stick. And if you are still determined to be one of those glowing, healthy Austinites who are always on the hike and bike trail, then we salute you!

*The Austin Spurs, owned by the San Antonio Spurs, are part of the NBA G League, or the “NBA’s official minor league”. Minor league games are the best place to spot top talent on the way to the NBA! According to the NBA G League, “30% of players on start-of-season NBA rosters boast NBA G League experience”.
