    Running or biking along Lady Bird Lake is a great place to workout. During the warmer months, they offer kayaking and water biking on the lake, too!

    Even Lady Bird Johnson didn't want Town Lake renamed to "Lady Bird Lake". It' will always be Town Lake to locals.

    Lady Bird Lake is a scene set for lovely photos. Take advantage of the sun’s glare to produce flare in photos for a creative effect.
