As the gateway to the Texas Hill Country, Austin is home to natural landscapes formed by our rolling hills and sparkling water springs. We have shaded trails that wrap around Town Lake for you to enjoy biking, running, and walking, and easy access to docks to put your canoe or kayak in. In the evening during the summer months, we gather near the Congress Ave. Bridge to watch the departure of some 1.5 million bats. In addition to our wonderful nature aspects, we also have some of the best restaurants in the state, Tex-Mex and every other kind of food you can imagine.
