Beautiful Lake Austin and Lake Travis, Stunning Texas Hill Country, and Totally Unique Austin . . .what more could you ask for?  Leave your worries at the city limits, put on some casual clothes, and prepare yourself for experiences you will find only in Austin. A bit quirky, definitely high-tech, and far from anything ordinary, Austin has a heart and soul worth experiencing.

Some of the favorite local sites. . . .


  • Enjoy Lake Travis without getting wet at The Oasis. Food, music, drinks, and a fabulous view from many of the open air decks! Located at 6550 Comanche Trail, it offers a vantage point of 450 feet above Lake Travis. (512) 266-2442
  • Chuy's, at 1728 Barton Springs, is a fun Mexican food place decorated with Elvis, paper mache, and hubcaps.
  • Enjoy some Austin Tex Mex in casual atmospheres of Guero's, at 1412 South Congress, or Taco Xpress at 2529 S Lamar.

  • Listen to music at the delightful open-air venue at The Backyard, 13101 West U.S. 71.

  • Splash Party Movie Nights are a great way to spend a summer evening at the Deep Eddy Pool. Swim in the pool, then sit on a blanket and see a movie.
  • Sit out on the deck, listen to the jukebox, have a beer and mind your own business at Dry Creek Saloon on Mount Bonnell Road.
  • See a play at the old timey Paramount Theater at 713 Congress Avenue. In the summer, they show classic movies.
  • Spend the evening on Sixth Street in New Orleans style where the street is blocked off and becomes a glittering strip of bars and live music clubs. Austin's E. 6th Street Map.
  • Bats, Bats, and More Bats!  From mid-March through mid-October see the dramatic night flight of the bats from the Congress Avenue Bridge.


  • Come to Central Market, 4001 North Lamar Boulevard, a showcase grocery store and tourist spot, to buy groceries, have a great meal, or people watch.
  • Climb the 99 steps to Mt. Bonnell at 3800 Mt. Bonnell Road to see Austin from one of the highest vantage points. It is known as a popular spot for young couples who want to watch the stars come out at night. Be careful who you climb the stairs with--you might fall in love according to the local legend.
  • Join Willie Nelson in claiming the Broken Spoke, 3201 South Lamar Boulevard, as your favorite watering hole and dance hall.
  • The BookPeople, 603 North Lamar, is one of the city’s major literary resources, locally owned and operated. It has a huge selection of books in all genres.

  • Swim in Hamilton Pool Preserve, located about 30 miles west of Austin on FM 3238. There is a 45 foot water fall creating a great swimming hole.

  • Take a dip in the Barton Springs Pool, 2201 Barton Springs Road, often considered the soul of Austin. It is a treasured, spring-fed pool that stands as a commitment to the environment and a place of psychological and spiritual renewal.
