Tubing Down the Guadeloupe
Price: Free if you have your own tube, but, taking gasoline into consideration, approximately $10. Tubes range in price from $10-$15, but buying tubes from sports/outdoors stores is suggested. Bring lunch, stay all day!

Why it’s awesome: Texas is hot. The river is cold. ‘Nuff said. Especially fun for outdoor enthusiasts or lovers of the Texas Hill Country. Have a whole day to spare? Invite your best friends and talk about anything and everything while slowly floating down the Guadeloupe River. Bonus points for stopping by Gruene!

Dance at Gruene Hall
Price: Entering is free (most of the time)! Gas will be approximately $10, so bring some friends and split the costs! Upcoming concerts can be found here: Concerts at Gruene. They also feature Two Ton Tuesdays – swing dance lessons ($5) and then a whole night of fun!
Distance from Mac: 30 miles.
Why it’s awesome: Live music in an authentic setting is magnificent. Gruene Hall is the oldest dance hall in Texas, so it draws a crowd of many ages. Many Austinites, Northside, and Smithson Valley folks flock to GH, so it’s a great way to meet new people!
