Also known as "the flats," this place has some impressive large graffiti, and is conveniently accompanied with the skyline of Austin, which some may view as a juxtaposition between the two fast growing worlds of ATX - the modernest and the hipster. Usually tranquil during the day, so it's a nice place to bike to. Look along the grounds and tops of walls as well for some clever and coy drawings.Recommended for:

Art can seem unavoidable in Austin, popping up in every nook and cranny of the city. Case in point: the Castle Hill graffiti lot in Old West Austin. The undeveloped lot, located on Baylor Street, between 11th and 12th streets, features a unique open-aired display of graffiti and stencil art that covers three levels of abandoned concrete foundations. It’s a colorful mix of local and visiting artists, cheeky signatures and seasonal events, like live stenciling from famous street artists and the top tier of the “gallery” offers up a panoramic view of the downtown skyline. The very nature of the outdoor gallery is transience, with new designs and paint jobs springing up every day. The lot’s future, however, is just as impermanent, with a continually stalled plan for condo and mixed-use retail construction slated sometime in the next few years. So, travelers should take advantage of it while they can.Recommended for:
