Landmarks and Tourist Attractions in Austin, TX

Austin is home to a wide range of activities. From East Austin's renowned restaurants, bars, and breweries to the world-famous South by Southwest festival, there are plenty of things for visitors to do in town.

The following are some of our favorite monuments and tourist sites in Austin, making it a truly remarkable location.

1) The Capitol Building: This lovely structure in Texas houses the state legislature. It is open to visitors every day from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., and you can also go inside and look at all of the artwork on display!

2) Mount Bonnell has long been a point of pride for the city, as it offers beautiful views and plenty to do. It's not too difficult to get up on top (about 3 miles round trip), but don't forget that there are other things you can see while hiking, such as the Austin skyline or even Lake Travis!

3) The Congress Bridge Bat Colony: Each summer, Austin is overrun by more than 1.5 million bats fleeing from under the Congress Bridge to feed their babies! It's a magnificent sight to see at sunset every night. Just avoid shining your flashlight on them, or they'll all take off!

4) The Charles Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum, located just south of Barton Springs Road on Robert E. Lee, was founded in memory of Charles Umlauf. He served as a professor at the University of Texas for 35 years. The garden is home to a beautiful collection of his sculptures, which is open to the public from 9-5 PM.

5) The Zilker Park Hike and Bike Trail is a great way to get outside for a while. From Town Lake Metropolitan Park to Zilker Park, this lovely route runs along Lady Bird Lake. It's well-maintained and seldom too crowded, so it'll keep you entertained for hours!
