Here are 10 reasons to love spring in Austin.
10.) Snow cone stands
You might not have noticed they ever went away. It feels like they just slipped away one night, but it’s plain to see your favorite snow cone stands are back in their usual places. As the weather heats up, the number of snow cone stands increases. By the heat of summer, you’ll find a stand near just about every major intersection in town.
Every Texan loves bluebonnets … especially this guy. But you don’t have to roll around in them to express your love of native wildflowers. You’re probably already scoping out the perfect spot to take your family pictures.
Hummingbirds can be hard to find. You can put out sugary water or store-bought feed, but there’s no guarantee they’ll finding. But once you have hummingbirds visit you one year, chances are they’ll come back year after year to the same feeder. These little guys zip around, and even though they’re moving a mile a minute, they are relaxing to enjoy. Pick up your feeder today from The Hummingbird Store out in Spicewood!
7.) Cedar season is over
Were you sneezing all January and February? Like many Austinites, you have cedar fever. You can put away your tissues and allergy medicine (but not that JuiceLand allergy-soothing smoothie) because the trees have stopped shedding their pollen. And you can wash the yellow film off your car. Or, you can go outside without feeling miserable. That’s nice, too.
6.) Tee ball
What’s cuter than little kids in baseball uniforms swing bats that are about as tall as they are and running frantically to first base? Probably nothing. Sign your kiddos up for the local YMCA baseball league today!
