One of the great things about Austin is that it’s hard to get bored since there is an event, activity and/or concert happening every day. But going out can get expensive. Luckily there are a lot of things to do around town that are free. Here are five ongoing free events to get you started:
Blanton Museum of Art – Check out the largest museum in Austin for free Thursdays.
Harry Ransom Center – Located on University of Texas campus, donations are welcome but not mandatory to see the different sculptures, photographs and exhibits.
Downtown Historic Street walking tours – Meet at the Capital and learn about the history of Congress Ave, Sixth Street. 48 hr. advance reservations are required.
Texas Capitol – Learn about Texas legislature and the state’s history. Daily guided tours are offered throughout the day and are about an hour.
Independence Brewing Company – First Saturday of the month they offer brewery tours, beer samples and live music.
