Bring in the Juice Video - More Fun Things to do in Austin TX
Houston and the surrounding areas including Katy are really not known as vacation destination locations. I am sure there are folks who would disagree with me the fact this area has a few things of interest for vacationers but is not really a vacation hot spot. One of the many advantages to living in Katy is both Austin and San Antonio are vacation destination locations. Both cities have numerous things to do and see with the surrounding areas comprising what is called the texas Hill Country.
Last weekend we were fortunate enough to travel to Austin to see the Summer Horns concert in Austin. We stayed at a Hyatt Regency close to the Congress Ave.t bridge. Town Lake and downtown Austin could be seen from our window. I shot a video of things folks in Austin could do for fun. Town Lake is as shown in this video easily visible from our room.
Town Lake had all kinds of activity as many folks went canoeing, boat riding, kayaking, or riding on top or sitting of what looked like a surfboard and using a paddle to generate movement. In addition, Austin was hosting a special bat festival on Saturday evening. We could see some of the festival tents from our room.
If you are unfamiliar with bats and Austin TX. there are millions of live bats that live under the bridges in Austin and especially the Congress Ave. bridge. These bats all come out to hunt insects at dusk every evening. The whole sky is like a big black cloud only it is all the bats as they fly down the lake. We have been in Austin in the past and actually went to see the bats emerging from the bridges. It is really some site to see and many folks on any given night especially on a weekend evening during the summer are in attendance to watch the bats. There are vendors who make a living selling bat items!
Austin is also as the city bills itself the “Live Music Capital” of the US. There are numerous places to go in Austin to see live music performed.
I hope you enjoy the video and I am still just starting to get my feet with using video.
