Throw on your swimsuit and hang out on the shores of Lake Austin at Emma Long Metropolitan Park! The park features boat ramps, designated swimming areas, picnic tables, and campsites. It’s generally a great place to take the family and cool off!

It’s open 7 days a week, 365 days a year from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Note: There’s currently a burn ban so be sure to pack a lunch that doesn’t require a grill.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
