5. Wine Tasting: Obviously this one is not for the expecting mamas, but definitely one to bookmark for next year if you are! In Austin, we are so fortunate to be surrounded by so many amazing wineries, breweries, and distilleries. You can even take the day to tour and experience all that the Texas Hill Country has to offer, including Duchman Family WineryFall Creek Vineyards, and the Driftwood Estate Winery.
