This property sits 379 steps from the back entrance of Barton Springs, a 1,000 foot long, spring fed, natural limestone pool. Additionally, it is a stone's throw to Austin's urban jewels, Zilker Park and the Hike and Bike Trail which boast lush scenery and urban skyline views. These attractions consist of 360 acres on which visitors can ride bikes (bike rental half a mile away), hike, rent kayaks or canoes as close as 0.6 miles by foot, play volleyball or disk golf, fly kites, or stroll through the botanical gardens. While at the lake you can try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, the world's fastest growing water sport. Barton Springs Road is home to many bars and restaurants, a putting range, a mini golf course, and a performing arts center. Nearby is the Zac Scott Theater, the Austin Nature and Science Center, the South Congress shops, home to First Thursday, and a spectacular view of the Congress Bridge bats each dusk between March and November.
