There’s nothing quite like a hot summer day with a cold one in-hand. Add in some pool volleyball, a full service bar and live music and it sounds like a classic American holiday at Travaasa Austin! The Fourth of July pool party kicks off at 1 p.m. and continues into the evening with Star Gazing beginning at 8 p.m. Take a glimpse at Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s Red Spot and our closest spiral galaxy, Andromeda.

Got island fever this Fourth of July? Celebrate Independence Day at Travaasa Hana’s Paniolo Lounge with live, local kanikapila style island music and hula dancing.

Of course, no American holiday would be complete without a chilly cocktail! Try this refreshing, patriotic sangria recipe to share with your pals.
