Enjoy Austin on a Budget
Things to see in Austin
Cast your eye across the stunning city vistas as you stroll across the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge. Here, you’ll also find the world’s largest urban bat colony. You can get a great view of these amazing creatures from the bridge, or for a closer look, take one of the many boat trips along Lady Bird Lake, which pass underneath the bridge. Enjoy the open spaces of Zilker Park, an expansive recreational space within the city, which dates back to the Great Depression. Wander along the many walking trails, or for a speedier trip, hire a bike and cycle instead. Stop for a while and enjoy a picnic al fresco—inexpensive ways to spend a pleasant afternoon. If you’re a natural history fan, the Texas Memorial Museum is located on the University of Texas’s campus. Another of Austin’s museums, the Elisabet Ney Museum, is housed in the sculptor’s former house and documents her life and works.
