    Barton Springs Pool

    4.5
    143 reviews

    If you find the Texas heat a bit too much, dive in. It's one of Austin's most popular destinations, and with good reason. Even a half hour in this cold-as-can-be water and you'll feel cool for hours. Chilled to the bone. Plus, it's a great place to soak in Austin's culture and fitness kings and queens. At $3 a person, ...

    Bats Underneath Congress Bridge

    4.5
    61 reviews

    I don't get it...but people love it. They fly out in a single line, they don't all come out together at once, so for me it's a little underwhelming.

    6th Street

    4.5
    62 reviews

    6th Street is not for me but here's what I can tell you. It's great fun to walk down the street, see the action and take in all the old buildings. If you like music and drink variety and watching people in bars and all over the streets, check it out at night! The Alamo Ritz downtown is pretty fun... ...

    South Congress Avenue

    5
    49 reviews

    What to say? Decades ago, a seedy part of town frequented by streetwalkers and studded with flophouses, South Congress Avenue, aka "SoCo" is now unquestionably Austin's biggest destination spot for locals and travelers alike. Nowhere else will you find such a pedestrian-dominated, promenade-like parade of interesting people, seeing what's new in the uniquely-Austin homegrown shops and eateries, serenaded many days ...

    University of Texas at Austin

    4.5
    47 reviews

    A great place for shady walks in the morning and evening when it's not a hive of activity. Also, I love the Harry Ransom Center archive and the live music opportunities at the Cactus Cafe, Bass Music Hall, Hogg Auditorium and new KUT building.

    Just don't look at the dirty ceiling corners and this is a true, traditional Austin music venue treasure... Redd Volkaert usually plays Saturdays at 3:00. For free. I recommend checking it out!!

    Alamo Drafthouse Austin: Downtown

    4.5
    38 reviews

    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

    4.5
    36 reviews

    No trip to Austin is complete without a trip to Amy's. Luckily (or maybe not so luckily for my waistline!) is that there's one only 3 blocks from the Studio. Yeah Amy's!!

    Mount Bonnell

    4.5
    34 reviews

    Sunday morning hike, with a great view of downtown. If you need to burn off some kid energy, send them up and down the stairs a few times in 100 degree heat. A guaranteed winner!

    Broken Spoke

    28 reviews

    You just haven't come to Texas until you learn to do the Texas 2-step, and the Broken Spoke is the place to do it! This place has been around since I was a girl, and I have twirled many a time on its dance floor. Don't expect fancy, cause this ain't it, but the chicken fried steak is good, the ...

    The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum

    4.5
    29 reviews

    This museum covers the history of Texas from the pre-Spaniard days up past the LBJ era. The feel is sort of self-congratulatory, but most of the information is still quite good. There are a number of interesting artifacts that they have managed to salvage from various places that are interesting in and of themselves, amongst which are some old State's ...

    Austin Convention Center

    4
    32 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.
