There's much more to do: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, look for all kinds of wild species at Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, witness a stunning natural landmark at Barton Springs Pool, and stroll the grounds of Texas State Cemetery.
