10Best Says

Best Attractions & Activities: Mount Bonnell provides a spectacular vista of Lake Austin, surrounding bluffs and multi-million dollar homes, the 360 bridge and downtown skyline. Climb the stairs or path to reach the highest point in the city, and you can even take a picnic - tables and grills are available. With the mostly mild winters in Central Texas, this sunset is nice to watch almost year-round. It's a great spot for picnicking, too, with rolling hills, the Colorado River, and all of Austin virtually spread out before you. Spread out a blanket or take advantage of the many picnic tables and pavilion that are at the site.

Parks: This spot offers the best view of Austin from its peak at 780 feet above sea level (the rest of the area is about 580 feet). A great spot for picnicking, too, with rolling hills, the Colorado River, and all of Austin virtually spread out before you.
