Grab your floats and tailgate lakeside at Pace Bend Park! The park is great for swimming, boating, hiking, and exploring the beautiful Hill Country. If you’re looking for a longer stay—maybe when it’s not this blazing hot—you can camp out on the cliffs that overlook Lake Travis!

Park hours: Open every day to new entries from sunrise to an hour before twilight.

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.
