The Perfect Day
Wake up early and start your day with an energetic walk around the Lady Bird Lake hike
and bike trail. Stroll the shops and enjoy the sights of Second Street stopping to enjoy a
bite to eat at one of the many great restaurants along the way. Stop in to the Mexic-Arte
Mexican Art Museum and the Arthouse at the Jones Center for contemporary art both
on Congress Avenue near the hotel.
Why not go to Zilker Park and enjoy the 358 acres in the city center. Take a ride round
the park on the Zilker Zephyr miniature train, row a canoe out onto the lake or make
like a local and take a dip in Barton Springs Pool. This amazing, natural spring-fed pond
is three acres wide and maintains a temperature of 68°F all year round, so you can swim
whatever the weather. While you’re here, pack in a culture fix: head to the Sculpture
Garden at the south end to see works by sculptor Charles Umlauf.
Enjoy a Happy Hour cocktail while listening to live music at the lively & beautiful bar
at Trulucks on 4th Street. At sundown in Summer, just a short walk away, join the
thousands of people gathering at the Congress Avenue Bridge to watch the famous bats
take flight. From there head to the SoCo District for a choice of some of the best dining
in town. Finish a perfect night at the famous Continental Club for live bands and mingling
with the locals. You might even spot a celebrity!
