Circuit of The Americas
#11 of 83 Sights & Landmarks in Austin
There is plenty of parking, you can find food and if you are in the guided tour, you can climb the tower where you can have a great view.
My suggestions if you are planning to attend: - If you are 2+people, the on-site parking is the best option - Take advantage of the circuit layout!
Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats

if you visit Austin during bat season, you must visit the Congress street bridge and the evening viewing of the bats taking flight - it is spectacular as well as great sunset views up river, and lots of fun people...
