Get ready to rock, Austin. We’ve assembled a list of must-dos and must-see hot spots. And while you’re crossing these places off of your ATX Bucket List, use Bird to travel through the city of Austin to discover new neighborhoods and skip traffic!
With so much to do, see, eat and enjoy, we’re not entirely sure you can do it all in just one trip, but here are some crowd favorites within Birding distance!
Mornin’ Joe Start your day at Cosmic Coffee, located in the St. Edwards neighborhood. Enjoy your brew and pumpkin bread next to their scenic pond and garden. And if you’re feeling up for it, check out their chicken coop! You might need a coffee first though.
For the Explorers: Austin is budding with eccentric art, music, and historic landmarks. Bird around the city or to a Austin Detours location to explore the city in various ways. Take the “Bucket List” tour from the Austin Visitor Center and explore the lesser known gems that the locals love. It’s not your typical tour filled with art, music, culture, food, history, parks, famous people, and much more!
Do it for the Food Austin’s food scene is a melting pot of culture and flavor. Not sure what you’re in the mood for? Bird to Fareground at OneEleven to experience and taste a little of everything. Offering boutique cheeses, ramen, Mexican and more, you won’t have to decide on just one.
Austin’s food truck scene is thriving with cuisines offered around every corner. Granny’s Tacos isn’t your regular food truck. Converted from an old ambulance, Granny’s Tacos sits on 7th street in East Austin, with picnic tables for optimal enjoyment. Touted by Austin locals as serving the best tacos in Austin, you’ll just have to come to see for yourself.
For the Wanderer Umlauf Sculpture Garden is an Austin treasure. Originally owned as a carriage house, and donated to the city of Austin for public enjoyment and education, the Umlauf
Sculpture Garden hosts visiting exhibitions and community activities. Family days, garden yoga, summer camp, and garden parties are just some of the many activities offered.
Enjoy the ride, Austin!
