A visit to Austin promises to be one that lingers in your mind long after you have returned to reality. The breathtaking scenery, friendly people, and a sheer number of activities to do and attractions to see make this town one of the more tourist-friendly ones in Texas. And although you may not have heard that much about Austin prior to planning your vacation, we guarantee it’s not a town you will ever be able to forget. Here’s a list of some of our favorite Austin sightseeing activities to keep you occupied during your stay.
Hope Outdoor Gallery (Castle Hill) 1101 Baylor Street
Remember the days when the artwork was limited to canvas and graffiti was bad? When you take some time to visit the Hope Outdoor Gallery during your Austin vacation, you’ll be thankful that those days are gone forever—at least, they are in our favorite town! This outdoor showcase of color and paint is ever-changing and never fails to awe. Everywhere you turn there’s something new to see, and if you purchase a painting permit, you and your family can take your own turn at street art. Don’t forget your camera!
Watch a Football Game, University of Texas
True fans appreciate the beauty and rawness of a college football game, and if you visit during the fall, it’s possible you can watch our favorite team play your favorite team—unless UT is your favorite team; in that case, you can come to sit next to us!
Umlauf Sculpture Garden, 605 Azie Morton Road
Reminiscent of Rodin’s famous garden in Paris, you can feel the peace and tranquility from the moment you first step foot in Umlauf Sculpture Garden, a must-visit when you go to Austin sightseeing. Featuring yoga classes, temporary exhibits, and CRAFT, a chance to create art as you imbibe delicious craft cocktails, this special place adds a little extra shine to an already glittering vacation.
Pinballz Arcade, 8940 Research Boulevard
Many of our guests can only imagine the fun of spending hours at a time playing on pinball machines found in bars and arcades—until they visit Pinballz Arcade right here in Austin, one of our favorite Austin sights! Bringing back the 80s with a vengeance, the highlight of this entertainment mecca is the room filled with vintage pinball machines! Also offering more modern games and activities, such as laser tag and escape rooms, they also serve food, so you can make a day out of it!
