Holy sweet berries! It’s strawberry season at Sweet Berry Farm in Marble Falls and they are B-I-G. You’ll pick your own fun for sure — it’s impossible to leave with only one crate. Not to mention kiddos can paint pottery, jump on the Berry Bounce, feed the goats (they’re super cute!), ride the train and more.
As always, the warm spring weather brings so many fun outdoor events to the Lake Travis area. SXSW may be gone, but it’s still hoppin’ way out west. Live music is just getting started on the lake.
Before you take a look at the upcoming weekend, let’s take a look back at what went on this past week …
On Wednesday, we shared impressive restaurant inspection stats to make every fast food foodie feel good. According to the reports, Lake Travis is home to plenty of perfectionists — fast food joints that consistently score 100. Perhaps your guilty pleasure contains less guilt.
On Thursday, Cathy re-introduced us to Canyon Grille Rough Hollow. Stop by for the delicious food, stay for the amazing view! This Sunday they’re hosting the 8th annual Crawfish Boil with live music, pool access and more.
