All reviews colorado river short hike highest point worth the climb easy hike view of the river pretty view austin skyline hill country nice hike great view of the city bring your camera worth the effort walk up austin area worth the trip take pictures
Have to climb a long staircase to get to the overlook. It could use a few pull outs with benches, so older people or Mom's carrying kids can catch their breath. The view is worth the climb. The parking is fairly easy.
It’s a small area but offers good vintage point to take in the views of the river and the houses along the river - some very expense houses with boat docking areas. I think it’s better to visit in the fall/winter when you can see...More
We went Friday evening for sunset, so I was concerned about parking. No need, there is plenty of parking and a lot of spots still available, even on a weekend at sunset. We went straight up the stairs (approximately 100 steps), walked around up there...More
A great place to visit to get a birds eye view of the area. It was only moderately busy when we went mid-morning on a Sunday in November so we had no problem snapping a few pics without having to wait for an opening. We...More
SA - Austin - Ft Worth - 5 day itinerary - recommendations? (7 Replies)
Traveling with my fiancee to Texas for a 5 day roadtrip. We're trying to see it all / do it all in our limited time with an emphasis on activities/sites that give a true Texas feel (country western, bbq, line dancing, rodeos, ranches, wildlife, hiking). Only things set are the flights currently, arriving in the morning in SA and departing after 5 days in the evening from DFW. Trying to figure out the itinerary in between (how much time to spend in SA, hill country, Austin, Ft Worth). ...More

Fishingirl- Sounds pretty fun, some things to consider... Uchi is closed on Sundays, maybe move it to Sat night! It is wonderful they do a Sake Social Happy Hour 5:30 to 6:30 Lunch on Monday, you can not go wrong with Shady Grove! Also Brunch at Stubb's Gospel Sunday Brunch is way fun complete with Bloody Mary Bar and some great live gospel Have fun
Visiting Austin 20th - 25th (2 Replies)
So my girlfriend and I are headed to Austin tomorrow and heading back on Monday. We're staying at the Red Roof Inn off I-35, and looking to do as much as possible during our stay. For that reason, I'm pretty sure we'll need a car... at least to do anything that isn't in the heart of the city. I've put together a list of some touristy ideas... Mount Bonnell, Barton Springs, Baylor Street Art Wall, Zilker Park, Congress Bridge Bats, SoCo Ave, 6th St, Mohawk, UT, Capital Building, Harry Ransom...More

I assume you are staying at Red Roof Plus. We were just there and pleasantly surprised esp since the rates were very reasonable. You NEED a car. We got one pretty cheap online. Well worth it. Unless you are staying right in the city, you really need a car as Austin is spread out. Just my opinion.
