How to spend 2 days in Austin?

Day 1 In Austin Park, Pubs, Bridge

Start off your trip with a refreshing dip in the Barton Springs. A set of four natural water springs located at Barton Creek on the grounds of Zilker Park in Austin, it is the fourth largest spring in Texas. In the evening, stroll along South Congress, an area which is a perfect fusion of traditional and contemporary Austin. From lively cafes, bars, and eateries, to bustling shops and marketplaces, there is a lot to explore and see in SoCo. 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. Austin is known for its eclectic music scene. So, spend the night listening to live music at any of the pubs in this area.

Day 2 In Austin Museum, Monuments, Historical Buildings

On the second day, pay a visit to 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 afternoon, head to State Capitol, the prime attraction in Austin and the largest capital building (not the tallest) in the 50 states of America. 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 evening, visit Waterloo Records, which is Austin’s favorite store. Spend the late evening chilling at Boardwalk on the Ann and Roy Butler trail. A plush, urban path bordering the waterfront, this boardwalk is a relaxing space in Austin that is perfect for a calm evening.
