    Parking garage tip: What is 2nd level on the east side is 3rd level on the west side. It makes a big difference when you're walking it

    Order your intermission drink before the show starts, and it will be waiting for you at the break!

    Every other Wednesday during the summer, enjoy a cool local band and a classic movie with Sound and Cinema. Get there early. It's become popular.

    Founded in 1911, the Symphony is Austin’s oldest performing arts group. The Halloween Children’s Concert and Christmas Sing-Along are local family faves.

    $7 for garage parking reasonable as close and convenient. Great views from patio and lawn with cold drink from outside bar in hand!

    Concerts in the Park on the lawn in front with Austin Symphony! Sundays during the summer at 7:30pm. Great for a picnic, a date, alone, or with the kids.

    Parking at city of Austin lot -- sometimes there's a fee. Same $7 as garage but cash only. Advantage is lots faster exiting surface lot. Garage has long lines usually.

    If you can get over the unnecessarily pretentious ushers, this is one of the best theaters in the country.

    parking in the garage is least desirable option. can take 15 min just to back out of your spot if you get to your car when everyone else is leaving the garage.

    For at least some performances, you can pay the valet 5 bucks extra to park your car right up front and then keep your keys, for a quick escape at the end. You just have to ask.

    The Long Center - such a great venue with unique performances! At the Idina Menzel show, they upgraded tickets (for free!) to better seats because the show did not sell out - pretty awesome!
