Finding things to do in Austin, TX is far from difficult, especially in the spring, but if you’re new to the area, the options you’ll have might at first seem overwhelming. Difficulties can also about if you’ve lived nearby for quite some time, and need a little help breaking out of your routine. Wherever you’re at, Sterling Acura of Austin is here to help! We’ve compiled a list of our favorite things to do with friends and family.

Go to a Concert

Austin is world-renowned as a city of well-known musicians and even better-known festivals. Even during the off-season, it’s easy to find somewhere to go where you’ll be thoroughly entertained. The concerts at halls like Parish or The Hole in the Wall are as affordable as they are cutting-edge. If you’re visiting at the right time, or if you live nearby and have never been, you should be sure to check out the concerts and attractions at South By Southwest.

Take a Bike Tour

Austin, Texas is a city for people, and not just a city for cars. If you desire an intimate experience in its nooks and crannies, you might have the best results from the back of a bicycle seat. Bike and Brew ATX will take you around and introduce you to locals’ favorite breweries and distilleries, while Barton Springs Bike Rental and Tours offers a more general look at the city. The less athletically inclined might also consider scheduling a trip with Austin Segway Tours.

Spend a Day at the LBJ Presidential Library

Lyndon B. Johnson, the President who signed the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act while the war in Vietnam raged on, has a long and storied history of his own. You can explore the legacy of his life and presidency at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin. In addition to housing a wide variety of primary sources available for research, the library is home to a wide variety of permanent and special exhibitions that rotate in and out.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Getting more out of life is all about appreciating what’s around you, and we think this becomes a whole lot easier when you’re willing to stop and smell the roses, or in this case, the wildflowers! The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is home to the largest collection of native plants in the state, and with guided tours available for groups, it’s easy to spend the whole day getting to know the area. The Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center, named for the 40-foot waterfall you’ll find onsite, offers exciting educational opportunities for children.
