Best Austin Picnic Spots for the Fall
Fall is underway in Austin! Some of may be confused by the timing of this post – why would we throw out a bunch of picnic ideas when winter’s on its way? Truth is, fall’s one of the best times of the year for an ATX picnic – the stinging heat has worn off, and the air’s between 65 and 85 Fahrenheit. Time to grab the local pumpkin ale (it’s hard to grow apples here) and buttered squash and lounge outside. Since it doesn’t rain here anymore, you’ll need a blanket…
The map above shows 10 of Austin’s best picnic spots, hand-picked (subjectively) by the in.gredients team. It was hard to settle on 10, since Austin has hundreds of great locations for a picnic! Perhaps you’ll add some more great suggestions to this post.
