A couple weeks off from school was just what you needed, but now it’s time to get back to it. How can you prevent the back-to-school blues? Take your mind off school with fun things to do in Austin like shopping at the Second Street District, trying unique food trucks, going to the movies, seeing a live concert, and other activities.
