You Can Go Glow-In-The-Dark Paddle Boarding In Austin And It Is Stunning

Beat the Texas heat with Glow Paddle Austin for the coolest nighttime floats.

April is quickly approaching and so is the insane Texas summer heat. For the coolest way to enjoy the outdoors in Austin without getting a massive sunburn, you can paddle out on the Colorado River on the craziest decked-out LED glowing paddle boards from Glow Paddle Austin for a night of relaxation and fun that you can't find anywhere else in the city.

With so many popular water holes and swimming spots in Austin, it is common for a local to hit up Barton Springs once the heat gets too intense. But that means the shores will constantly be crowded and there is still no shade against the burning sun! Well, now you can hop on a glow in the dark paddle board and set sail on the river during the calm and empty evening hours.

Glow in the dark paddleboarding is the new, cool way to beat the Texas heat! Head over to the banks of the beautiful Colorado River at the popular Texas Rowing Center at 8 pm for the most unique paddleboarding experience ever.

Get the coolest night shots of the city from the center of the river or take some snaps of you and your friends soaring over the water on your glowing boards. Just be careful not to drop your camera in the water!

You must reserve your spot in advance on their official website so make sure to do that before you head out! They currently have open spots on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm but times will change depending on the date. Tickets are $50 per person which includes an hour and a half on the river with their LED glowing paddleboard and paddle rental.
