7 Sno Cones We Love in Austin
With temperatures reaching up to 109 degrees this month, there are only two places you'll find me: hiding in an air-conditioned corner or swimming in the frigid springs. In both instances, you'll more than likely also find a glorious Sno Cone in my hand. This is the only way to make it through the summer in Austin; a delightfully quintessential part of our hot months.
Sticky and (often) messy, melting faster than you can shovel it into your ridiculously steaming pie hole, and gleefully bright, Sno Cones make a Texan's summer complete. Grab one, get your reward card punched, tip your hardworking iced treat maker, and head to the springs or Town Lake. Whether you personally call them Shaved Ice, Sno(w) Cones, or Raspas, these will cool you off with a splash of childhood bathing-suit-and-sprinklers nostalgia and brain freeze.
Enjoy exploring these 7 Austin Sno Cones that we absolutely love!
