Austin's Best Kept Secrets29 Jul Team ATX Life Admin
Austin is the city that boasts and brags about so many amazing attractions, activities, and eateries, but we’re still a city with a few secrets. We’ll spill the beans about some of the places every Austinite or future Austinite should know about and make a point to visit.
If the name doesn’t give you an immediate magical feeling, then it’ll hit when you visit the area behind the Lamar Union complex. The alley is sure to bewitch you with its charm as the brightly painted fence and asphalt, holiday-themed decor, and whimsical items hanging from the trees above delight your child-like wonder!
Right off of off 35th Street is a small yet scenic park with trails, gardens, and some birds you may not be used to seeing outside of zoos. Get hiking and take a peek at the peacocks!
Austin Nature and Science Center
If you’re hoping to find your inner Indiana Jones, the Austin Nature and Science Center has a Dino Pit for pretend fossil excavations. For those with little ones, there’s a trade counter where kids can trade their interesting finds for an ancient trinket in the center’s trade collection.
