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.

Things to Do in Austin in March

Take a walk, run, bike ride, or kayak around Lady Bird Lake

Take a walk, run, bike ride, or kayak around Lady Bird Lake
The walking path that loops around Lady Bird Lake is bustling all year long with joggers, bikers, and dog-walkers taking in the breathtaking views of the Colorado River and downtown Austin. The mostly shady path is a perfect escape from the spring sun. The trail runs through the outskirts of Zilker Park, Auditorium Shores, and over several bridges such as the beautiful Lamar Pedestrian Bridge. If you’re looking for something a little closer to the water, you can rent a kayak or a paddle board for an hourly rate.

Hamilton Pool

Hamilton Pool
Hamilton Pool is one of those places whose sheer beauty alone will make you appreciate all that mother nature has to offer. Located about a 45-minute drive outside of Austin, it’s well worth the trip. From the parking lot, you’ll have to hike about a mile before you get to the pool itself, which is below a 50-foot waterfall. The water is chilly but that doesn’t stop people from jumping in, even in the cooler months.
