Pollen hotspots in Austin

It's no secret that Bat City has a lot of green, and that means a lot of pollen. Fall means ragweed pollen fills the air. Plus, during winter, Austinites might be feeling under the weather because of "Cedar Fever". Contrary to what you might think, Cedar Fever doesn't cause a fever and instead refers to an allergic reaction to mountain cedars—prolific pollinators that produce clouds of pollen. Even though it's tough to stay inside when you could be biking, running or simply turtle-watching at your favorite park, if you want to keep seasonal allergies at bay, you might want to steer clear of parks and grassy areas. Lucky for you, we've compiled a list of allergy-friendly things to do in Austin when pollen counts are high, so you can keep Austin weird without worrying about the sniffles.
