A note about

Austin is hot in August, so please consider these tips on how to prepare for your trip:
Drink more water than normal
Before your trip to Austin, and while you are here, drinking plenty of water is the number one way to help your body adjust to Texas temps and humidity.
Eat foods high in potassium
It’s important to eat foods that help replenish electrolytes by balancing salt intake. Think foods such as broccoli, bananas, avocado, cantaloupe, celery, greens, bran, chocolate, granola, dates, dried fruit, potatoes, and tomatoes.
Prepare for sun and humidity
If you like to exercise outdoors, don’t overdo it, especially during the hottest part of the day. Take breaks, dress for the heat in loose, light-colored clothing, wear a hat, and sunglasses, and use sunscreen.
