    Texas State Capital

    It's big, and it's full of history, with a great rotunda, over 17 monuments on the grounds, and wide open spaces where you can picnic before or after your 45-minute tour. I'd like to say more nice things about it, but Texas politics can be downright ridiculous!

    Home to more than a million Mexican Free-tail bats, Austin's Congress Avenue Bridge provides a picturesque landmark with great views of the Capitol, the Colorado River (Lady Bird Lake), downtown and all those bats, which emerge at dusk each day in a stream that baffles many visitors. That faint smell? It's guano - bat droppings. But don't let it scare ...

    This elegant theater is stage for live and movie performances. Look closely for a hole in the ceiling above the stage where Houdini left his mark during one of his performances.

    This dive bar along Austin's main drag (and center of SXSW) is famous for its lusty decor, but it also offers a stellar menu of gourmet burgers, waffle fries, and the phenomenal (or phenomenally strange) Guinness Bloody Mary. They've also got tons of specials, including $2.50 Wells and Pints every day from 11:30am to 7pm and Happy Hour prices all ...

    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.

    Super casual pub that we somehow always end up in when bar hopping. The patio upstairs is good for people watching the Sixth Street crowds. You might event see a lab coat carrying a life-sized stuffed deer during SXSW (I kid you not). Depending on the live act downstairs, you can put in song requests.

    So many events and things do do at the Long Center. Come enjoy a picnic on the lawn, or go to free concerts in the park during the summers at the Long Center. Located just south of downtown and Town Lake, it is a picturesque place and well-loved by locals.

    For 15 years, Cedar Street Courtyard has been combining two of Austin's biggest passions: live music (seven nights a week) and delicious cocktails. The open-aired veranda is the home to several weekly performers, including The Spazmatics, an energetic new wave 80s band, that draws big crowds every Wednesday night. During SXSW, the intimate venue features incredible day shows (free to ...

    This is a fantastic yoga studio, and I believe the first lesson is free. They also have a Blenders and Bowls on-site which is a great place to get a smoothie.

    This bar has been the beginning of so many fun nights out on 6th in Austin. They have great specials early Saturday night and always have a chill atmosphere. The phone booths are pretty cool, as well, as you can step into one to make a cell phone call that you can actually hear.

    This huge 6th street bar is basically an Austin Institution and it seems to attract frat guys for years after they graduate. The best part of this place is there is tons of rooftop space and it is one of the largest bars on 6th street. This bar has been around for awhile and that wont change for a long ...
