And for those interested in more sightseeing options around the beautiful city of Austin, we have compiled a list of ways to stay active this season and get out and about near The Clairmont.
Move Your Body In Nature
Lady Bird Lake: Whether you want to walk along the lake, stand-up paddle board, or kayak, this is a great location to move your body. There are 10 miles worth of trails that border the lake, making it a popular spot for runners, walkers, and cyclists.
Barton Creek Greenbelt: Another popular place for those looking to get active outside is this trail with over 12 miles. You can hike, bike, and swim along the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Stop and enjoy the view if you’re looking to catch your breath afterward.
Roy G. Guerro Colorado River Park: This park has a river and dam that attracts various water birds. So, while this park is excellent for bird watching, it’s also a great view to walk along the park and enjoy a round on the frisbee golf course.
Fazio Foothills at Omni Barton Creek and Wolfdancer Golf Club at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines: If you’re a golf lover, visit one of the many golf courses in Austin. One of the highly rated golf courses is Fazio Foothills at Omni Barton Creek due to its stunning views, and Wolfdance Golf Club at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines is one of the best public courses due to its expansive terrain. Even if you plan to use a golf cart, walking around the course will keep you active and practicing your swing while you’re at it.
Get To Know Austin
Downtown Walking Guided Tours: If you’re looking to get to know the history of Austin, what better way than to have a guided historical guided tour walking through the city? Each neighborhood in Austin is rich with history; through this experience, you’ll feel even more connected to our beautiful city.
Austin’s Art + Music Culture: If you’re looking to further your connection with the Austin art scene, the city’s art and music culture are thriving. Museums are dedicated to sharing various cultures and plenty of live music to enjoy while walking the city.

Autumn means colder weather, and that could also mean flu season too! It is important to stay warm and safe this season, especially because family and friends are traveling for the holidays!
If you are visiting someone or plan to, make sure you are layering your clothes or dressing appropriately for the weather, staying on top of your health by eating nutritious food, staying active, and getting proper rest. Don't forget to wash your hands and utilize hand sanitizer in public spaces!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and that means food and family! People have different ways to prepare for Thanksgiving.
Some plan out a list, down to the activities and conversations that can take place at the dinner table. These people also take out the recipe books and follow the directions to a tee! Others may take the go-with-the-flow approach and wing it! That includes recipes too.
Which group are you in? No matter your approach, we hope that this holiday season is a fulfilling one!
