One of my favorite Austin afternoons came when I decided to go ziplining for the first time at Cypress Valley Canopy Tours. I had always thought ziplining was only available in places such as Costa Rica, so I was intrigued by the idea of doing it in my very own hometown.
Strapped in and flying high above the Texas Hill Country, I realized just how breathtaking, yet serene, a zipline experience is. That coolest thing is that there are loads of incredible experiences such as ziplining available to Austin residents.
From canoeing in Lady Bird Lake to taking in the flowers at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower center, there's something for everyone. Check out this round up I wrote for more ideas.
