  • Austin is growing fast, and the city's motto, "Keep Austin Weird," is a dead giveaway that fun things to do in the city are endless. For an enjoyable afternoon, take a scenic journey on The Hill Country Flyer. Traveling deep through the Hill Country, this excursion is a must-see for any train buff. Wander through small Texas towns and view the beauty of an era gone by, all while enjoying a relaxing trip in an old-time rail car.

    Check out South Congress Avenue. Known for its funky style, South Congress Avenue is located about a mile south of the Ann Richards Congress Avenue Bridge and with a clear and brilliant view of the Texas State Capitol, draws Austinites and visitors alike for its shopping and eating opportunities. Stylish boutiques filled with unique clothing and accessories share South Congress Avenue with fun local eateries and antique stores brimming with undiscovered treasures. The first Thursday of each month brings the aptly titled First Thursday event, where SoCo storefronts remain open later, often serving margaritas or cold beer to a slew of people meandering the street in this open-to-the-public street festival of sorts.

    If you love scary movies, the Austin Ghost Tours is for you. The bone-chilling tour explores local unsolved mysteries. A similar tour, Haunted Sixth Street, takes you to the local pubs where local spirits are said to like their spirits. Austin Ghost Tours has also teamed up with the Austin Museum of Art for a special 90-minute Haunted History Walking Tour, featuring the museum exhibit "The Disembodied Spirit," the Wooten building, the Old Miller Opera House, and the Capitol. Active, captivating, unique -- these fun things to do in Austin are bound to put a smile on your face.
