Austin may be a big city in Texas but the natural beauty running through and around it make it easy to get lost in the outdoors without leaving the city limits.
One of the many outdoor adventures you can embark upon is kayaking the Colorado River (which runs through the city!). Rent a kayak along the banks of the river for $15-25 an hour, depending on which company you use, or bring your own! You'll experience the peace and beauty of nature while enjoying incredible views of the city line.
Austin has many perfect days year-round making this adventure ideal for all ages. Most rental companies will also have SUP and canoes available as well.
