Spring in Austin is all about the great outdoors and when it comes to sunshine, we have plenty to spare. After spending a day at Zilker (which celebrates 100 years in 2017!), swimming in Barton Springs, kayaking Lady Bird Lake, practicing sun salutations under the blue sky or wandering among the wildflowers, cool down with a refreshing snack at one of our many fresh juice bars around town. Remember, vacation doesn’t have to be all about greasy foods; hydrate and cleanse with a healthy juice or smoothie! Seven of our top spots:
