Austin is an amazing city to explore and find new and interesting things to do with your friends, family, or even by yourself. If you truly enjoy relaxing on a Sunday, Austin has some great places to check out and to clear your mind for the upcoming week. Heres a list of some great ideas for a Sunday Funday in the great capitol of Texas.
One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday, especially when it is sunny, is to ride my bike to the downtown district of Austin. My favorite route is to go straight down congress and through the capitol. I stop at the capitol and have a snack by the amazing trees that surround the capitol building and enjoy the amazing architecture of the Capitol.
Continuing down congress, there are plenty of great places to stop along the route downtown. If you take a slight detour, one of the best bars downtown, the Brown Bar offers a great selection of beer that offer three dollar specials on Tuesdays, five dollar specialty martinis on Wednesday nights, and a whole lot more.
Some great places to eat along the way that I fully enjoy are the great Sushi restaurant Silhouette, located on 8th and congress. They have really good prices for some of the best sushi I’ve had in Austin, and they also have an amazing selection of Saki.
If you are in the mood for some other food, I suggest the Athenian Bar and Grill, http://athenianbargrill.com/ which has some amazing lamb and a pretty decent bar as well as amazing goat cheeses and Mediterranean food.
If you continue down congress, you can check out South Congress Avenue, which includes some of Austin’s best local shops and restaurants. You can stop and check out the bat bridge on congress and 1st St. as well.
If you continue past South Congress, I highly recommend checking out the Cathedral of Junk . One of the best local parts of Austin, it might not stay up for long as a continuing battle with its zoning laws has been occurring lately. It is one of my favorite places and attractions in Austin, and I think everyone needs to check it out.
If the weather permits, you can always go swimming or biking at some of Austins amazing swimming locations and bike trails.
Austin is full of great places to have an awesome Sunday Funday.
