“If you like History, Bob Bullock is the Texas state History museum in Austin. ”
“The pink-granite building is the centerpiece of downtown Austin, perched on a hill at 12th Street and Congress Avenue. Free guided tours are held daily, starting in the South Foyer, but brochures are also available on the first floor for self-guided tours. The Texas Legislature meets every two years, so you’ll have to check the schedule if you want to see an actual session in progress.”
“With 70 degree water temperatures year-round, Barton Springs is a haven for hippies and laid back families alike.”
“ Mount Bonnell, at 785 feet (239 metres), is one of the city’s highest points and features a 99-step climb to the top.”

“Zilker Park is where ACL happens, where a great Zilker Christmas Light Show is, where the Stevie Ray Vaughn bronze is. Close enough to Casa Willow and Holly Neighborhood. Google what is happening at Zilker when you come.”
