Here in Austin, when we think of relaxing in the summertime, tacos, music, margaritas, and outdoor watering holes easily come to mind. However, national holidays are unique in that they often have a specialized theme, are family oriented, and include longer weekends. Sure enough, Memorial Day is just around the corner and it is bringing with it a three day weekend. So, if you are looking for some ideas to relax, to unwind, and to enjoy yourself this Memorial Day weekend in Austin, here are some of our tips for having a great holiday!
BBQ By The Pool – Apartment Living in Austin
Do you currently live in an apartment? If so, you will usually have access to a clubhouse, grills, and a pool; good for you!

Invite your friends and be ready with all the essentials: good food, drinks, music, and of course, sunscreen!
