10 Great Austin Texas Attractions

We each have our own favorite Austin Texas attractions. True enough most of mine are tied to nostalgic memories of childhood field trips and chaperone experiences from my son’s younger years.

But over the years these places still have not lost their appeal.

If anything they’ve become more meaningful and interesting with time. Places like the Bob Bullock Museum weren’t around when I was younger, so I didn’t get a chance to experience as a child. But, my son did.

And his wide-eyed account of the huge museum and its phenomenal IMAX Theater were enough to catch my attention and make me want to visit for myself.

If you would like to send me your top ten I would love to post it for others to enjoy and consider as well.

Here are my top ten for your consideration:

1. The Governors Mansion
2. The State Capital
3. Austin Bats
4. Zilker Gardens
5. Lady Bird Wildflower Center
6. LBJ Museum
7. Bob Bullock Museum
8. Mount Bonnell
9. Barton Springs Pool
10. McKinney Falls State Park
