Stay Cool (All Day) For The Summer

Here in Central Texas things are heating up. We know you can’t wait to hit every activity during your summer break, so join us on our perfect Cool (All Day) summer bucket list!

Sunrise

Start your summer morning off with a sunrise trip to kayak or paddle board at Lakewood Park!

You can bring your own and use the launch or rent your equipment at Lakewood Park.

Check out this blog to get all the latest information on Lakewood Park.

Don’t forget your coffee from Perky Beans on the way. We recommend ICED in this heat! If you want to grab a treat with your morning joe, head over to Casa Costa Bake Shop for Brazilian coffee and baked delights.


Breakfast

Waffles at Mouton’s

After working up an appetite, your crew is going to need food! Time to head to one of the many Leander hotspots for a great bite to eat. You can get breakfast sandwiches at Sharks Burger, brunch at Mouton’s Southern Bistro or Blue Corn Harvest, or try out the new PB Café. Bonus points for finding a patio to enjoy the morning breeze!


Poolside at Noon

Dive In Movies in Leander, featuring The Spongebob Movie on July 22

The best way to unwind after a big breakfast is to head to the POOL! Leander has a great public pool at Robin Bledsoe Park, complete with a diving board. Don’t forget to check for special events like Leander’s “Dive-In Movies” coming up on July 22nd or the “Itty Bitty Beach Party” on the 23rd.

Pool a little out of your depth? Leander also has two public splash pads! One is located at Robin Bledsoe Park and the other is at Lakewood Park. Both are a great way to keep the littles cool all summer. If you happen to be at Lakewood Park on July 8, celebrate National Freezer Pop Day with the City of Leander. They will be handing out cool refreshments starting at 11 a.m. 

Delivery for Lunch

Don’t forget to get your lunch delivered! We have so many great options here in Leander, use this guide to help you narrow it down.


Afternoon Ice Skating

Hot summer afternoons are made for indoor activities, and nothing is cooler than ice skating at a local hangout. We love that the Crossover has a fantastic ice skating rink so close! Use the link for Public Skate times, but the late afternoon is usually available.

Ice skating not your thing? Never fear, the Crossover has you covered either way! Check out their Esports Cave for an inclusive place for all gamers.


Pre-Dinner Icy Sweet Treat

Summer fun calls for something frozen, sweet & refreshing. We suggest a shaved ice from Bahama Bucks or a frozen lemonade from Chick-fil-A to keep the summer vibes on point and extra icy. We think this Shark Attack Sno looks extra…chilling!

If you want something to treat your tastebuds and your health, try Leander Nutrition for a smoothie!


Dinner On THe Patio

Family dinner outside enjoying the late evening break from the heat is the perfect end to this family fun day!


Looking for a Cool Grown-ups Night Out?

The end of a perfect summer day should feel like a party, and we think you’ll agree that dinner at The Thirsty Chicken is just that. Their frozen daiquiris will keep you cool and their wings and atmosphere are always hot!

Then we suggest you head over to Maggie Mae’s Old Town Pub or Leanderthal Distilling after dinner for refreshing cocktails and delicious drinks to end your night.

We hope that we kept you cool all day on this summer bucket list journey through Leander! Did we miss any cool summer stops? Let us know in the comments!
