As HVAC professionals, most of our days revolve around the weather. Cold days mean repairs to heating systems. Hot days mean routine air conditioning maintenance. Our Covenant Club members keep us busy throughout the year, with the added benefits of system maintenance and discounted repairs. One thing we truly love about Austin, Texas is the multitude of available outdoor activities and events. While paddleboarding on Lady Bird Lake or going to the secret beach on the Colorado River can make for an almost perfect day, these things are difficult to do on rainy days. We’ve put together the short list of places to go on those truly dreary Austin area days.
- Inner Space Cavern: Located about 35 minutes outside of Austin, the Inner Space Cavern is an outdoor attraction you can visit even when it rains. The Inner Space Cavern is one of the best preserved caves in all of Texas. It has been around for over 10,000 years. Regular tours are offered every day of the week and are appropriate for all ages. Attractions include a play area, mining area, and gift shop.
- Museums in Downtown Austin: Austin is Texas’ state capitol. It combines history, culture, and art into one diverse city. When the rain strikes, take the time to visit some of the best museums in all of Texas. One of the most well known museums in downtown Austin is the Bullock Texas State History Museum. They have an IMAX theater that plays Texas based movies throughout the day. It’s a can’t miss if you’re just touring Texas, or were born and raised here. The Austin Children’s Museum is also a great place for rainy days. They offer tons of fun activities for kids of all ages and is a sure bet for beating rainy day cabin fever.
- Austin Aquarium: The Austin Aquarium is home to over 2,000 species of water and land creatures. There are multiple touch tanks and tanks for feeding the animals. They have several exhibitions a day of Aquarium employees feeding and tending to the animals.
