Things to do in Austin in July 2013

Posted on Monday, July 1st, 2013 at 4:22am.

With July right around the corner, its time for another list of fun things to do in Austin. This month, the Long Center is hosting it's second annual All Summer Long series featuring free or low cost concerts and events, including favorites like Rhythm on Stage and Trailer Food Tuesday.  For an evening of family fun in the great outdoors, stop by the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center's Nature Nights, where kids of all ages can learn and explore the plants and animals of the Texas hill country.  If you're up for a challenge this summer, sign up for the Caleb 5K or the Pink Run, both of which benefit great charities.  Just as a reminder, July 4th is coming up, so be sure to check out our blog post for some great ideas on how to celebrate this 4th of July.
