Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail and the Barton Creek Greenbelt

Enjoy two of the most popular spots for fresh air and exercise. The Trail loops for 10 miles around Lady Bird Lake with scenic waterfront and downtown views. The Greenbelt is a favorite with hikers and bikers.

Congress Avenue

Listen to live music, outdoor entertainment while enjoying world-class food. The stretch of Congress Avenue from the Texas State Capitol to Lady Bird Lake is at the heart of Austin life.

Zilker Metropolitan Park

Sitting across the river from downtown Austin, this beloved 351-acre park buoys Austin’s reputation as one of the Best Places to Live. Whether you choose to swim, canoe, or dig for fossils at the Austin Nature and Science Center’s Dino Pit, you’ll find a range of options – a particular point of praise for recent visitors.

Texas State Capitol

Take a tour of the Texas Capitol which is widely recognized as one of the nation’s most distinguished state capitols. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986.

Congress Avenue Bridge

There’s estimated to be a colony of around 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats that migrate to Austin each year. At sunset stand along the bridge to watch them fly around or take a Segway tour to see the bats and other landmarks such as Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, the Austin Rocks boutique, the Willie Nelson Statue, and more.

Sixth Street

A trip to the “Live Music Capital of the World” wouldn’t be complete without discovering some of Austin’s up-and-coming talent along Sixth Street. Today, Sixth Street between Congress Street and Interstate 35 is the center of the musical action in Austin. The area buzzes with activity from shops, restaurants, bars, and yes, live music joints.
