We hear from our Texas affiliates that the summer is just about to kick into high gear– and nothing says Summer in the Texas Hill Country quite like floating down a cool, spring-fed river! Seeing as the forecast is currently calling for climbing temperatures, we feel it’d be a missed opportunity to let you go without spreading the word.

Nothing says “relaxation” like drifting down a nice cool river with an ice-cold beverage

Part of the cabin lifestyle, no matter where your cabin happens to be, is learning how to spend your time at your home-away-from-home. In and around Austin, Texas, a big part of that time is spent in relaxation! That’s why we recommend taking the opportunity to check out a couple of these wonderful activities.

Nothing says “relaxation” like drifting down a nice cool river with an ice-cold beverage. With that in mind, did you know that Texas Hill Country boasts some of the best river-floats in the country? With rivers featuring scenic limestone cliffs and ample opportunity to kick back and relax, we’re sure you’ll find something to suit your tastes. Whether it’s floating through downtown San Marcos with your kids, or taking in the sights on the wilder Guadalupe River, Texas Hill Country has plenty to offer in the way of quality time on the river.

Of course, like any other outdoor activity, make sure to check restrictions and requirements: many parks and rivers in Texas forbid disposable containers under five ounces, and like anywhere else in the country, public consumption of alcohol is frowned upon. Safety and comfort are also key– remember to bring sunblock!

If relaxing time on the river isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry! There are plenty of other opportunities for entertainment in Texas Hill Country. Though we know you went down there to get away from it all (after all, you’re looking at a blog dedicated to cabins) you may want to think about taking some time to enjoy Texas Wine Country. The hot weather of Hill Country, combined with those spring-fed rivers and ample sunshine makes for one of the most vibrant and remarkable winery circuits in the country!

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the fact that Texas Hill Country features some of the most gorgeous wilderness in America.

In fact, wildlife watching (did you know there are over 30 species of migratory bats that pass through Hill Country?) and day-hiking in the many natural preservation areas is a great way to really get to know Hill Country. If you’re looking for the cabin lifestyle, we can’t recommend it enough!

No matter where your cabin happens to be, we hope you take the time to learn about all of the great things that wilderness living can offer. Make sure to do some research, and take some time to really stretch your legs and enjoy cabin living at its best!
