1-5. Experience Magical Candlelight Concerts

Experience an absolutely magical fall here in Austin, and part of that is thanks to the amazing indoor and outdoor venues the city has to offer. Luckily, Fever Originals has brought its wildly popular Candlelight concert series to Austin.

6. Get Your Tickets To This Tantalizing Dining In The Dark

Imagine stepping inside a restaurant blanketed in darkness and being served a sublime three-course meal – the flavors and textures of which are intensified by your remaining senses. Sounds a little bit incredible, right? An experience that’s been backed by psychologists as an ‘amplified’ way to enjoy food, the enticing ‘Dining In The Dark’ event is coming to Austin this May so you can find out yourself.

7. Visit Hogwarts Castle 

Just in time for spooky season, the yearly residential Harry Potter pop-up, Diagon Alley Austin Halloween House, is on display for all witches, wizards, and muggles. Saddle your broomstick and take a flight out to the cross streets of Slaughter Lane and Bungalow in Austin, Texas, where Texas couple, Joel and Amanda Pace, have transformed their lawn into the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter once again.

8. Catch Air At The World’s Largest Bounce House

9. See The Best Texas Has To Offer

Anyone that has ever road tripped out of state understands the sheer size of Texas. And with its enormousness, there’s plenty to see and do in the Lonestar State. From state parks and small towns, to luscious vineyards, to some strange little oddities along the way, here’s some exploration inspiration for my fellow Texan wanderlusts.

Now more than ever is the time to support small businesses. Thankfully, with live music, good eats, and a crop of awesome local shops at The Far Out Lounge, it’s never been so much fun.

11. Play A Round Of Pickleball

When the name of your entertainment complex is called “Dreamland”, you’re already setting the bar pretty high. But when your entertainment complex, outdoor recreational center, and arts venue offers everything from Pickleball to live concerts, well, maybe the name is more fitting, after all.

12. Enter A Portal Into Parallel Universes

For many, a trip to the ATM, particularly after a long weekend, is a somewhat trepidatious process. One mind trick is to simply make the withdrawal without peaking at your balance – if money comes out, it means you still have some in the account. When making a withdrawal from Sprinkles Cupcake ATM, it’s kind of like that, except much more exciting.

14-15. Glamp In The Stars

Spend a few nights at Basecamp Terlingua, an other-worldly glamping experience that integrates the future with the past, giving its visitors the impression of luxury camping in the cosmos.

  • Horizon on the Hill in Marble Falls is a wedding venue like none other. The countryside venue offers sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, a majestic look over Lake LBJ and Lake Marble Falls, and a dazzling stardome that acquaints visitors with a magical view of the constellations.

16. Sweeten Up At This Precious Bakery

Hyde Park may possibly well be the most charming neighborhood in Austin. And it’s due to its quaint collection of local coffee houses, restaurants, and grocers. On 43rd street, across the way from Fresh Plus, you have Quacks Bakery, home to buzzworthy coffee concoctions, precious pastries, and the most enticing danishes in the capital.

17. Hang Out At The Armadillo Den

The two-story Armadillo Den is hooked up with Google Fiber Wifi. With both indoor and outdoor seating options, this makes the Den ideal for mixing work and play. Its spacious patio is spruced up with oak trees, plenty of tables, yard games, a swing, and a running creek. In the near future, the Den plans to open an off-leash dog park as well as construct a kid-friendly awning area.

18. Get Lost In This Magical Multi-Sensory Wonderspace

We could all use a psychological escape right now. Plunge into the infinite space that is imagination in the multiplicity of multi-sensory experience exhibited in Austin’s Wonderspace. Stimulate your mind at Wonderspace in Austin, where 12 surreal expositions are currently on display.

19. Channel The Addams Family At This Spooky Monster Mansion In Texas

Ghouls, goblins, and other unearthly creatures are invited to hang their head – er, hat – at Waxahachie’s Munster Mansion, a colossal replica of the house featured in ’60s cult-classic sitcom, The Munsters.
