Austin March 2021 Events

Enjoy the Outdoors this Month in Austin

Average temperature low and high: 51°-73°

March has to be one of the best times to visit the vibrant city of Austin, Texas. As the weather warms, the plants that surround the city slowly come back to life and the cool spring weather is nothing short of perfect. Being an outdoorsy city, there’s no better time of the year to go hiking in the greenbelt, running around Lady Bird Lake, and going for a dip in the chilly Barton pool.
