And, if shopping isn’t your thing, it’s also great way kill time while your family shops the market.

This is great for local and guests to Austin alike, but it’s especially good for those visiting the SFC Farmers Market Republic Square or looking for something quick and fun to do in downtown Austin on Saturday mornings.

Then we’ll head up Congress Avenue passing by the Mexic-Arte Museum, Historic Paramount Theatre, the Contemporary Austin, the Old Bakery and Emporium, and to the Texas State Capitol.
From the Capitol we’ll head up to the University of Texas at Austin Campus,
passing by the infamous Texas Chili Parlor and the humble Austin Scottish Rite Theater.

and the Blanton Art Museum before heading to the Historic East Side.
