What To Do In Austin For 1 Day?
Early in the morning
Make your way to the State Capitol, the largest capitol building (not the tallest) in the 50 states of America. If this is your first visit to this grand structure, you can opt for the free, 30-minute guided tour which provides an insight into the local, state, and national history. In addition to exploring the building, do not forget to stroll around the surrounding grounds which house close to 17 monuments, historical buildings, and landscaped lawns.
In the afternoon
Head to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum a place housing interesting exhibits which delve deeper into the minute and important events of the Texan history. The best part about this museum is that unlike typical museums with boring and long descriptions, this one has a humorous side to it.
In the evening, walk along the Boardwalk on the Ann and Roy Butler trail. A lush, urban path bordering the waterfront, this boardwalk is a relaxing space in Austin that is
perfect for a tranquil evening.
As it nears the time of sunset, head to the downtown's Congress Avenue Bridge for an exciting round of bat-watching. Home to North America’s largest urban bat colonies, this area is quite popular among tourists. Call the Bat Hotline (tel. 512/416-5700, ext. 3636) to find out the daily estimated time of the bat flight so that you can gather near the east side of the bridge to watch the awe-inspiring phenomenon of hundreds of bats taking flight simultaneously.
