So You’re in Austin for ACL…

So the Austin City Limit music festival brought you to good ol’ Austin, Texas… Now what? If you are staying in town for weekend two, or live here and are looking for something different to do, we’ve got you covered. Here is a list of things you have to do in Austin and some free shows coming up this week. Check it out and enjoy exploring Austin!

Places to go:

  • The Texas State Capitol If you haven’t been to the state capitol before, you’ve got to do it! Pack a picnic and eat on the lawn (the weather is perfect for it) or walk around the inside. It is beautiful and definitely worth seeing before you leave.
  • Lady Bird Lake– Love being outdoors? Swing by Lady Bird Lake and go for a paddle on a kayak or a stand up paddle board. Definitely a good way to cool off from being at ACL!
  • Mount Bonnell– Hiking up the Mount Bonnell mountain is definitely something everyone in Austin should do at least once. The view from the top is breathtaking! The hike itself is pretty easy, but definitely wear comfortable walking shoes because it is a little rocky!
  • The 360 Bridge Overlook– This is another one that is worth the climb for the view you get. Just like Mount Bonnell though, wear comfortable shoes.
  • The University of Texas at Austin campus– Take a stroll around the campus! There are tons of statues and beautiful buildings to look at. Be sure to stop by the Tower and the fountain on the 40 Acres!
  • Barton Creek Greenbelt  By far one of the best places in Austin to hike and cool off in the water. Just be careful, with all of the rain there are some treacherous spots!
  • The Blanton Museum of Art– Want something to do indoors? We absolutely love this museum and their blue wall!
  • UMLAUF Sculpture Gardens Right over by Barton Springs and Zilker Park, UMLAUF offers an escape and beautiful sculptures to look at!
  • South Congress– Want a fun atmosphere, with lots of food options? South Congress has all of it in just a stretch of road.
