Known for its progressive attitude, indie culture, and great bar crawls, Austin is also a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Surrounded by hill country, the city sees as many fitness junkies as it does hipsters thanks to mountain summits you can hike, lakes you can paddle board, and the wealth of hiking trails around Lady Bird Lake. Take advantage of the scenery and warm weather (highs reach the 70s in March) to visit wellness resorts in the hills or along the lake. One gem is Lake Austin Spa Resort, a 19-acre sanctuary where guests can take fitness classes like SUPstance Board Balance, dine on organic cuisine, and chill at three pools (one indoor pool). If you want to see the sights, Austin has a great bike share program, where you can take to the bike-friendly streets, or join Social Cycling Austin, free social bike rides that have a theme every night (like The Yoga Ride and The Thursday Night Social).
