Austin Restaurant Weeks
August 15th- September 2nd
When you dine out you can help fight hunger. Austin Restaurant Weeks brings chefs and foodies together in the fight. Hunger is a serious issue here in Central Texas, where 1 in 6 of our neighbors can’t be sure where their next meal will come from.
You can help by dining out at participating restaurants during Austin Restaurant Weeks, a two-week-long dining extravaganza featuring specially-priced lunches, dinners and cocktails at restaurants throughout the greater Austin area. A portion of the price of each meal comes directly to the Central Texas Food Bank, which can turn each dollar into four meals for our neighbors in need.
Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures
Continuing August 1st-September 29th
Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures: 14529 Pocahontas Trl., Leander, TX 78641
A floating water park and challenge course that is a true evolution in water play. Enjoy a private Island getaway to the largest floating obstacle course in Texas! Begin your all day excursion with a scenic boat ride across Lake Travis to Adventure Island. You will start with a 45 minute pulse pounding session on the 600 foot obstacle course track with increasingly challenging elements- climbing walls, monkey bars, slides, hurdles, balance beams, bridges and much more!
While the kids continue to burn energy after the 45-minute session on the Floating Obstacle Course, adults can relax in the shade on a hammock or lounge chair and enjoy one of the most spectacular views of Lake Travis. Adventure Island also offers food and beverages, including wine, beer and frozen drinks. Floating coolers are also available.
The highlight of LTWA is the “Floating Challenge Course.” Built for beginners to experts, the 600-foot water playground offers a wide array of fun and challenging obstacles, including climbing walls, monkey bars, slides, hurdles, balance beams, bridges and so much more. Guests must be at least 7 years of age and 45” tall to play on the course.
For those looking for more thrills and chills, adrenaline junkies can take on both Lake Travis adventures this summer. LTZA offers a three-hour tour with five of the fastest and longest ziplines in Texas, ranging from 300 feet to over 2800 feet. In between gliding across beautiful canyons and soaring over Lake Travis, zipliners will take nature hikes through the Texas Hill Country with a professional tour guide.
