Summer is all about cooling off, having fun and going on adventures. Rock out to live music, have a waterpark adventure, or quench your thirst at a brewery. Located near Austin and Lake Travis, Cedar Park is the perfect summer vacation destination. So, trade your cowboy boots for some flip-flops and let the summer fun begin! Read on for some ideas and things to do in Cedar Park:

1. Make a Splash

Enjoy the ultimate lake experience at Waterloo Adventures on Lake Travis. A revolutionary floating water park, obstacle course and private Island getaway with rolling Hill Country views will send you straight into vacation mode. Don’t feel like being in the sun? Take the whole family over to Splash Shack. Cedar Park’s newest indoor micro-water park. Kids can play in the interactive water play structure with slides and large tipping water bucket.

2. Chill Out

With temperatures rising in the summertime, beat the heat with some ice-skating Ice & Field at The Crossover Sports complex in Cedar Park. Get some R&R by kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, or fishing at Brushy Creek Lake Park. BCL Park also has splash pads that kiddos can cool off in on the weekends. Another way to “chill out” is by trying float therapy at True Rest Float Spa. This spa will have you feeling calm, cool and collected after floating in one of their low gravity float pods.

Sing along to your favorite tunes at Rockin’ J Piano Bar for good times with friends in a fun and entertaining atmosphere.
