The weather in Texas can be unpredictable—one minute the sun is out; the next, the skies are darkening and thunder can be heard creeping in. But there's no reason to hide under your covers when it rains in Austin. Between exploring some of Austin's best restaurants and the city's top attractions to finding shelter in a craft beer bar, you'll be taking advantage of the best the city has to offer, all while staying dry. Save your hiking plans for another day—the Greenbelt will always be there—and spend the day eating, drinking and enjoying these rainy day activities.
