When I lived in Austin, Town Lake was my home away from home. I absolutely loved the trail that follows Lake Austin through the middle of downtown. Every time I ran, I was sure to see someone that I knew, or someone that I’d like to know, along that path. It’s a great spot to make new friends, especially if you’re a dog owner. This particular part of Town Lake included Auditorium Shores known for unleashed dogs, boot camps and summer festivals like Austin City Limits.
The entire path feels like one big family gathering with companies like RunTex finding ways to make the trail, even more friendly. Thanks for the water coolers!
Town Lake is free and it’s a wonderful way to people-watch, marvel at nature, and have a real conversation- all while you get your heart rate going. And then you can go to Chuy’s.
