We went for what we think most visitors are looking for: a mix of the tried and true and a few places off off the beaten path—maybe even to a some spots you haven’t visited much yourself.
Bonus: If you have guests flying in, have them take a look at our Austin airport guide.

Remember to call ahead to find out. And there are still plenty of places to enjoy Austin’s natural outdoor beauty, open 365 days a year.
