    Beautiful lake serves as natural boundary between North Austin & South Austin. Congress Ave that leads from the Capitol building, becomes S. Congress Ave on other side of the Congress Bridge.

    It's a wonderful site to run, hammock, or kayak during the summer! The winters tend to be quieter, which can be great.

    Rent a canoe or a paddle board and enjoy a sunny day in Austin. Or use the jogging trails to burn some calories.

    No one talks about the trails when they talk about Austin, but they're great for a morning run.

    You can't swim in the water, but the left fork (heading west) in the river will take you to Barton Springs Pool, a popular Austin hangout, and you can splash in the water to your heart's delight. Read more

    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.
