Austin: What To Do

I promise this is the last post about Austin!  There's just so much to share!  While we were in Austin, we went to the infamous Barton Springs Pool and it was so cool.  I have never seen a public pool like this.  I loved that they kept the natural elements while still creating a space for the public.  There is even a Barton Springs salamander that makes the pool its home and certain sections were roped off to protect  their habitat.

We also went to downtown Austin, specifically S. Congress and checked out all the shops.  We went to Allen's Boots, where I was a little tempted to get a pair of cowboy boots but ended up leaving empty handed.  Boo!  We also stopped at food truck row (that's what I call it anyway) where there was a truck for every food!  We had a little snack and then headed on.  Talinn especially liked the pink lemonade.

And then we went to the Lady Bird Wild Flower Center, which was gorgeous.  They had a decent size landscaped garden that we walked through and then they had tons of hiking trails that you could explore on your own.  It definitely was a must see!  We even saw two baby owls (not pictured)...their furry little heads were peeking above a little alcove.  So cute!

All in all it was a great trip and I would recommend it to anyone!


  1. You've convinced me! I want to go to Austin now! Actually... I've been to Austin, but didn't go to any cool places like you've described. Maybe the key is that I need to go to Austin with you! :-)

    1. I didn't know you had been to Austin!

    2. Yeah, when K lived there I went and visited. But I am pretty sure the only think we did in Austin is hang out at her apartment!


Thank you so much for commenting! It really makes my day!
