Had a wonderful weekend. I must say that the weather is still holding good.Today’s topic is about places to visit in and around Austin.Usually when parents/guest come to Austin or even if you are new to Austin we would like to explore places around Austin. Some places that are worth a visit are:
*Temples: All of you know the Austin Hindu temple(website), apart from that there is “Sai Baba temple” in Cedar park (website). We have also gone to the Temple,temple Texas (website) and the Meenakshi temple in Houston (website).
* Penny backer bridge, right before you hit the bridge , there’s an area for off-road parking. Park, climb up the semi-hidden trail , and enjoy the magnificent view of the lake in the day,sunset or stars at night
*We went to a beautiful peacock park called the May field Preserve on 35th street . Kids had a lot of fun looking at the peacock. It is a must see in Austin.
*The Capital building on Congress Avenue is a good spot to hang around for some time.
*Mozart’s (website): This is a nice coffee shop in Austin by the lake,. A very good hang out place.
