Fall has officially arrived in Austin, and with it the weather has cooled down, making it the perfect temperature for some of Austin’s best nature trails. Whether you’re looking for a short walk with a good view or a more challenging hike, Austin has lots of great options for being outdoors. I’ve partnered with HI-TEC to show you some of my favorite spots for hiking around Austin, taking my HI-TEC V-Lite WildFire Low hiking boots and their new outdoor crossover apparel out with me. Here are five of my favorite trails in the Austin area.
Coming to Mexico City for the season of Día de Muertos, aka Day of the Dead, is a pretty magical experience. Traditionally, Day of the Dead is associated with the dates of October 31 through November 2, but there are lots of events and things to do in Mexico City in the days leading up to it as well. For example, you can try a cooking class to learn how to make pan de muerto, or you can visit Casa Azul, the home of Frida Kahlo, to see the detailed ofrenda they put out for her. And you’ll find beautiful marigolds, also called cempazuchitl flowers, everywhere you go in the city.
