»Lewis-Chen Family Field

It seems odd that in a city the size of Austin, most of the tracks where people can walk, run laps, sprint, and/or perform crunches and push-ups are in high school gyms, which are usually locked behind high gates with barbed wire at the top. Thus, finding an exercise location of this nature is quite a discovery and should be lauded. One such place is the Lewis-Chen Family Field, the soccer stadium atop the hill in front of the St. Edward's University Main Building. There are benches and rings where you can do pull-ups and tri-dips, but the most notable aspect of the field is the breathtaking view of the downtown Austin skyline. Combine that with the endorphins and serotonin released with exercise, and that equals the perfect stress-reliever.

»Lady Bird Lake

Lady Bird Lake is a reservoir of the undulating Colorado River, in central Austin. Originally known as the Town Lake, this reservoir was created in 1960 with the erection of the Longhorn Dam. For a decade this lake was left in a derelict state, until it was transformed into a beautiful recreation zone in the 1970s. In 2007, the lake was given the name Lady Bird Lake, honoring the memory of the former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson. A number of activities are organized in and around this lake. You can rent a boat to sail on its calm waters or fish, or even enjoy an exhilarating hike or bike along the trails of this lake.
