    6th Street

    79 reviews

    Historic 6th Street is a must for every tourist that wants to experience Austin nightlife. On Friday and Saturday nights, they block traffic on the street so everybody can walk freely between live music venues and drinking establishments.

    Bats Underneath Congress Bridge

    68 reviews

    If you're visiting Austin, definitely come here to watch the bats fly out at dusk. They're all gathered under the Congress Bridge, and you always see people here trying to snap some pictures. I spent a good amount of time here trying to capture some pictures, but I came a little after dusk, so it was a bit too dark. ...

    The trendy South Congress shopping district is about 2 miles from the house. There are a ton of great restaurants and unique Austin shops for clothing, art, trinkets, antiques, etc.. I recommend checking out Home Slice pizza if you make it to South Congress.

    This house is the perfect place to stay for SXSW! All the daytime action is just steps away! And downtown venues are a moderate walk or a short ride away.

    This is my favorite Drafthouse location. The tiny front theater feels much more intimate, and Master Pancake Theater shows here are great.

    Amy's Ice Creams

    38 reviews

    Richest ice cream I have ever tasted. The Mexican Vanilla is a classic. Definitely the best local parlor for ice cream and thankfully there are lots of locations around town. Plus, you can get pints at the airport packed in dry ice! I like to stay simple with one flavor in a sugar cone, but ordering crush ins is worth ...

    The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum

    32 reviews

    We went to the Tate history museum full of energy, but left a bit disillusioned. When we got into the museum, they were remodeling the entrance for a party that was to be held in the museum. That meant we couldn't enter normally.The ground floor is only interesting if you want to know about Indians battling Spaniards. I found it ...

    Austin Convention Center

    34 reviews

    This convention center is actually very small, and they do hide it well. However when larger events come to town they usually have to be very spread out as the convention center cannot hold it all. Other than the size the convention center seems very new and looks very nice.

    One of my favorite spots in Austin! I suggest going around April when the roses start blooming. There is a rose garden with numerous types. So pretty! There are wildflowers everywhere. So much color! One of the my favorite parts is the prehistoric area. Here you'll find a some prehistoric plants that were around when the dinosaurs were. Extremely cool. ...

    Violet Crown Cinema

    Violet Crown is a great place to catch a movie. I like that you they offer drinks/cocktails and food, which you can eat outside or take into the movie with you. The seats are also assigned so that way you know exactly where you are seated. There is no need to find or reserve seats. An added plus is that ...
