What To See and Do During Spring Break in Austin

You can feel it in the warm rays reaching down from the sun, the cool wind gust and blooms peaking out from beneath the earth, it’s almost Spring!  With this celebration comes the time honored tradition of Spring Break, which lets face it, happens before the Vernal Equinox tells our calendars that it’s actually Spring!  If you’re setting your GPS to Austin this Spring Break, you’re not going to want to miss some of the best the town has to offer; such as a day lounging beside Barton Springs Pool, or a hike to the top of Mount Bonnell, which offers a not-to-be missed view of the Colorado River below, or shopping and sight seeing along South Congress and a FREE tour of the Texas State Capitol!  In addition, here’s some Spring Break events you won’t want to miss!
