Make sure you are saving up energy because at night, Austin really comes alive. No trip to Austin would be complete without checking out its notorious 6 Street bar strip. There is something for everyone on the strip, from rowdy clubs to low-key bars.

It's Bat-tastic

It's Bat-tastic

Austin doesn’t bat an eye at one or two bats, because it is home to Congress Avenue Bridge, which shelters the largest urban bat colony in North America. Up to 1.5 million Mexican free-tail bats fly out near dusk each day.

Pet-Friendly Austin

There will never be a shortage of precious pets around, as Austin is ranked #4 among most pet-friendly cities. If you decide to go on one of the many beautiful riverside runs (the iconic Lady Bird Lake Trail and Barton Creek Greenbelt runs are close to major downtown hotels), be sure to add a few extra minutes to your planned route as you are bound to pass some sweet pups who are begging to be pet.   

Once you have had enough puppy petting for one day (if that is even possible), check out some of the other local attractions that we have deemed a must-see! Bringing your own four-legged friend? Check out these pet-friendly parks & trails for double enjoyment!
