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!
