12 miles. Taking the steep climb up Mount Bonnell to take a few selfies is one of the most tourist-y things you can do in Austin, but that's because it is beautiful and worth hiking to get there!. One of the city's tried and true dating ideas (going all the way back to the 1850s) is to pack a picnic…

Amazing place to watch a sunrise or sunset. Nice 100 step hike up as well.

“Zilker Park is where ACL happens, where a great Zilker Christmas Light Show is, where the Stevie Ray Vaughn bronze is. Close enough to Casa Willow and Holly Neighborhood. Google what is happening at Zilker when you come.”

Capitol Building
“The pink-granite building is the centerpiece of downtown Austin, perched on a hill at 12th Street and Congress Avenue. Free guided tours are held daily, starting in the South Foyer, but brochures are also available on the first floor for self-guided tours. The Texas Legislature meets every two years, so you’ll have to check the schedule if you want to see an actual session in progress.”

Pool
“6 miles. Springs Pool has been attracting all walks of life since its inception in 1837. You can always count on a place to swim at Barton Springs Pool, and you can also always count on the water being a brisk 68 degrees. If you haven’t been to Barton Springs Pool, go it's beautiful and the sound of children laughing coupled with Cicadas on a hot summer day will put you into a zen state of mind. ”
