On Saturday mornings in Austin, everything moves at a slower pace. It’s a great time to get outside and have the road to yourself, and it can also be a great time to see some attractions without fighting the crowds. Luckily for our future residents, 70 Rainey is just a walk away from a variety of Saturday morning activities. Read on to see some of our favorite early morning activities near our luxury downtown residences!
Our Favorite Saturday Morning Activities in Downtown Austin
Visit Lady Bird Lake
This urban retreat is only steps from our waterfront condos, a brief walk or bike ride away. The 10.3 mile trail loops around breathtaking downtown views, and the lake is home to a variety of wildlife including elegant swans and colorful ducks. It’s fit for every level of runner, biker, or walker, with convenient stops and entrances/exits along the way.
The Boardwalk Trail connects a 1-mile gap along the lake's south side. While crossing, take note of the cast bronze belts lining the boardwalk rails. This art installation, titled "Belting It Out," pays tribute to top Texas composers and vocalists. Looking closely, you'll see song lyrics inscribed upon each belt.
Another fun option is cruising the lake in a rental canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddle board. For an early start, Texas Rowing Center opens at 6am. Or glide across the lake on a water bike, pedaling a bicycle supported on two sturdy floats. Austin Water Bikes opens on Saturday at 10am.
Browse the Farmers’ Market
Just 1.3 miles from our luxury downtown residences is the Republic Square, which is set to reopen within the coming weeks. It will host events including the SFC Farmers' Market where you can buy flavorful, locally grown food or specialty products. You’ll find tables with fresh, homemade salsa, honey, jellies and jams. You can stock up on fresh baked bread or vegetables, or enjoy breakfast from the onsite café while listening to live music. If you have children, they'll be thrilled by activities designed for them at Imagination Playground. Just before leaving, you can even buy a gorgeous bouquet to decorate your condo. There will be many things to do and see at the Farmers’ Market, and you’ll feel great supporting local farmers and vendors
