In Austin, there’s always something to do, and that includes fun-filled Austin activities for the restless solo traveler. Big cities are great destinations for those traveling alone, so you’ll find Austin a vibrant place to be, ripe with adventure. Take a few of our Austin activities recommendations for solo travelers like you:
Take a Kayak or Paddleboard Tour
Take an unconventional tour through Live Love Paddle, and head out onto the water with an expert tour guide to see Austin in a new light. They offer a wide variety of tours, including: Bat Watching Tour, Urban Kayak Tour, Full Moon Music Paddle, and even a July 4th Fireworks Tour. You can also rent equipment from them if you’d like to go off and explore the waters on your own, free of the constraints of a tour.
Visit the Blanton Museum of Art
Museums are a great solo destination since you’ll be able to explore the exhibits at your own pace. The Blanton Museum of Art’s hours vary slightly day to day, but they’re open every day except Monday, making them a great midday activity. Make sure to catch the current featured exhibits, such as The Artist at Work, Wael Shawky, and SoundSpace.
Explore the Museum of the Weird
This started as a mom and pop shop and evolved into the locally beloved museum of oddities that it is today. This is one of the last old-school, dime museums of eras gone by. If you love sideshows, strange sights, and weird artifacts, this is the place to be. The museum is $12 for adults and is open every day from 10:00am – midnight. Find them on Sixth Street!
Relax at the Zilker Botanical Gardens
This is a wonderful way to spend a day in Austin. The garden is open 9:00am – 5:00 pm, and admission is only $8.00 for adults, which means you can stop by almost any time during the day and spend pennies for hours of enjoyment. When you arrive, you’ll see why Zilker Botanical Gardens is often referred to as “the jewel in the heart of Austin.” Explore the different themed gardens all interconnected with streams, waterfalls, and ponds housing gorgeous Koi fish. We could sit and watch them for hours. This is one of the best Austin activities.
