Central Austin offers many opportunities for short walks and day hikes through pleasant residential neighborhoods and historic areas. The Austin Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and the Austin Historic Landmark Commission sponsor free walking tours of historic downtown Austin at 9 a.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tours begin at the south entrance to the Capitol and last approximately 2 hours. Call 866-GO-AUSTIN for information. Here is a link to the form to complete for a tour. Walking can be a great low impact form of exercise.
