Austin Tour Ideas
2 to 3 hrs
Fifteen clues, two hours, one city - this is a self-led scavenger race that sends groups capering around town to solve clues. Unlike other city-wide excursions, this one unshackles racers from the tyranny of official start times and concrete dates. Players simply click on a launch code, head to the starting line, and begin the scavenger hunt whenever they've got a spare two hours. During the process, players will hear fun stories and insights about historical sites while discovering hidden gems along the way.
The Bats and Ghosts 5k Tour unveils a darker side of Austin that often goes overlooked. Austin was home to the first documented serial killer in America. For about one-hour in the evening, meeting at 7:30pm, you will explore that theory along with dozens of other murders, suicides, and hauntings throughout the Downtown, led by a professional guide. You will also visit the largest bat colony in North America on the Congress Ave Bridge where you'll see a 1.5 million bat exodus for the night's hunt. Many of the sites and stories on this tour are morbid and macabre, so if you don't like being scared, this isn't for you.
