Austin Adventures with Angela

Angela visits different fall activities around Austin

Fall is right around the corner along with the cool mist in the air. This calls for exciting fall activities and warm, comforting foods. Right now is the perfect time for pumpkin spice with everything.

Fall season in Austin is  something everyone needs to experience. The weather is never too cold here during fall and this makes for a great selection of activities to participate in.

For example, Sweet Berry Farm is the perfect place. With outdoor activities such as mazes, pumpkin painting, bounce houses, and you can pick your own flowers as well which is all COVID-friendly.

Sweet Berry Farm also has goat petting, horse-riding, and so many amazing activities for kids, but also adults. It would be the perfect place to go for a date, a weekend with friends, and as a family experience.

Sweet Berry Farm is a little far, located in Marble Falls but well worth the drive. Of course, this farm is seasonal so go during this fall or you will have to wait till next year. The farm closes on November 7.

There are so many delicious hidden coffee spots in Austin. They have a comforting environment with the sweetest baristas that will make your day. Most of the coffee spots in Austin have outdoor seating and are dog friendly.

The first hot-spot is Mozart’s Coffee Roasters where you can get a fresh cup of coffee and delicious goods. With a fresh cup of coffee and a great atmosphere with a spectacular view on a lakeside patio which is dog friendly. Not only that but an amazing outdoor space to enjoy your food and talk to friends.

Bring your friends for a study session or with a partner for a romantic setting. This cafe’s setting is perfect for any situation. I like coming here after dinner for a fresh baked dessert.

An amazing spot for dinner or lunch is at Hula Hut right next to Mozart’s cafe on the lake. Hula Hut serves hot Tex-Mex and has a large patio for seating. A great place to watch the sunset and enjoy a hot Tex-Mex dish.

They serve lots of traditional Tex-Mex dishes such as enchiladas, fajitas, and quesadillas. They also offer burger and sandwich options if you’re not feeling Tex-Mex. They have an outdoor bar on the patio that serves lots of drinks.

The farmers market at the Soco Select Farmers Market is fun and a great place to find fresh, homemade goods. It is open Friday, Saturday  from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 1:30pm-5pm. You can get more information on their website which also shows pictures of what kinds of goods they have to offer.

Summer Moon Coffee has been gaining more attraction over the years and it definitely deserves the recognition. They are located right on Slaughter Lane with a drive through that goes around the plaza. Also they have variety of coffee, matcha, chai, hot cocoa. I deeply adore their mugs and cups. They also serve baked goods and they have partnered up with TacoDeli, which is in the same plaza, by serving their breakfast tacos at the cafe. They have some outdoor seating but lots of room inside with a great atmosphere and with very kind baristas. And that’s a wrap on fall activities in Austin.
