Want a margarita and some Mexican food? Guerro’s is a local favorite and an easy walk from the house. They have a huge menu and some outdoor seating at the restaurant. Next door there is a music venue that has a full bar and limited bites. The outdoor garden venue is a must visit.

If you’re interested in getting a burger look no further than Hopdoddy. Give the seared tuna burger a try, it’s my favorite. They also have great fries and milkshakes. Expect a line, but it moves quickly. They also have a great happy hour.

If you walk north to the end of alameda, there is an access point on your left to the hike and bike trail, perfect for a jog or still along the water and see amazing views on the city.

A must visit to Barton Springs! The pool is in the 60s and taking the first plunge will take your breath away! But it’s rejuvenating, and beautiful to relax on the grassy lawn. Small fee to enter.

A block west is a walking trail that goes along the green belt. Great for a run or stroll with coffee. There’s tennis courts, basketball, volleyball, a large playground, wading kids pool (in the summer) and a year round swimming pool on the south end.
