This sweet little coffee house on South Lamar never fails to provide a quiet bit of fun in Austin. It’s a great place to stop by on the way to work for coffee and a pastry. It’s also the perfect spot to unwind after a long day with a glass of wine or craft beer and some great live jazz.

2. Zilker Park

Zilker Park is one of the most well-known places to have fun in Austin. The open fields at Zilker Park are the best for throwing around the frisbee or relaxing with some yoga. Sometimes we lace up our sneakers and hit up one of the biking and running trails. What’s not to love?!

3. The Magnolia Cafe - South

After that run, you’re ready for one of the best ways to have fun in Austin: queso! We're partial to Magnolia Cafe on South Congress. That’s because it’s a ‘hop skip and a jump’ from our office and their queso is fantastic! Our favorite is the Mag Mud Queso with black beans, avocado, and pico de gallo. Delish!

4. Spun Ice Cream

Spun Ice Cream uses only fresh ingredients and all of their flavors are made on in-house using liquid nitrogen. We keep going back for the vanilla bean with shortbread crumble toppings in a homemade waffle cone. Spun is the most delicious way to have fun in Austin!

5. Rainey Street

This street just south of downtown is full of cute bars in converted bungalows. All are in walking distance from each other and serve an impressive selection of beers and creative cocktails. We've been smitten with the ambiance of every spot we’ve tried!
