Austin, Texas Tourist Attractions

Parks, Museums, Sightseeing, ...

Austin, a city of wildflowers and parks, of bat colonies and museums, of live music and more live music, can be a little overwhelming in its richness. Every other block has its own attraction or, like Sixth Street and South Congress Avenue, is its own attraction. You may want to decide on your mood for the hour, or the day, and pick attractions based on that. Kids will love the highly interactive Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, history buffs will love Lyndon Baines Johnson National Historical Park, nature lovers will want to sit near the Congress Avenue Bridge in the summer evenings - and watch the bats fly out by the thousands and thousands. And, of course, one thing you can always catch in Austin is a show.
