We spent Memorial Day this year in Austin, TX. It’s no secret that Austin is HOT - in every sense of the word.
Average highs in late May for Austin teeter around 88°. During our trip, it was consistently 95-98°. It was HOT. But Texas is no stranger to heat, so there is ample shade in most places and locals know how best to stay comfortable. Car seats in Austin often come with seat coolers - this Northeasterner didn’t even know that was a “thing.” Due to the extreme heat, we didn’t do as much exploring as we otherwise would have, but our long weekend was still tons of fun.
