Tips from locals
Walk around town lake or take a blanket and a picnic down to Zilker park. It is Austin’s version of Central Park.
Barton Springs Pool, Town Lake, and the Lady Bird Hike and Bike trail are joined at the center by the best park to stroll, throw a blanket on the grass, play beach volleyball, or just sit on a bench and people watch.
Great park right in the heart of downtown. Beautiful view of the city. Great to take pups to or have a picnic.
Great place to walk around and enjoy the park. During the holidays there’s a trail of lights but tickets are required for the light trail.

Free guided tours are held daily, starting in the South Foyer, but brochures are also available on the first floor for self-guided tours. The Texas Legislature meets every two years, so you’ll have to check the schedule if you want to see an actual session in progress.”
