More Austin Travel Tips:

  • See amazing art without leaving the UT campus. The Blanton, with its immersive piece "Austin" by Ellsworth Kelly, is very close to the Harry Ransom Center. The Skyspace is also on campus. These are hard to access on UT game days or other campus events, so plan accordingly!

  • Make an afternoon of a Laguna Gloria visit by having lunch or a snack in its new restaurant, Épicerie at the Contemporary, which serves French-American food.
