Alot of cute shops and murals along this street. Going back to see if we can see the bats that come out out around dusk.

Vereeeey loooooong wait, maybe 40 bats came flying out. Even the paddle wheel boat and other excursion boats gave up. However the people watching was very entertaining!! No one to blame, hard to control animals in nature! We wondered if it wasn't tool late in the year for the bats?? Will probably try again next spring while in Austin. Maybe rent a kayak and do some paddling while waiting.

We went way too early (we went with plenty of time to see them at sunset...bats came about 20 minutes AFTER sunset...) but it was cool to see them - an unimaginable number of bats!

My friend and I recently saw the Bats take a flight on a Friday night and it was amazing. I was not expecting such a spectacle and being on the river to see this flight was fabulous. It sounds crazy but it’s not to be missed when in Austin

Seeing the bats in Austin is something you must do. Every day at sunset they come out and fly out, first time i was driving when it happened and it caught me off guard.
