Best spots in Austin to spruce up your Instagram page

September 4, 2018 | By Wes Womack

As an Austin Realtor, we find ourselves traveling the city daily, running from client showing to client showing and in doing so; pass some of the best spots in the city to take photos. We've rounded up our top 5 so if you're ready to set your Instagram ablaze then grab that IPhone and let's go! 




1. The ATX Sign at Whole Foods Grocery 
525 N. Lamar Blvd

This is in a great spot to capture your inner ATX loving spirit. Stand in front, lay down on the letters, just make sure to watch the traffic because this is a busy intersection.

2. Laguna Gloria

3809 W. 35th Street

This park is home to beautifully manicured grounds, old Spanish-style architecture, outdoor sculpture galleries, wooded trails, and hillside staircases overlooking the water–all just as glorious as it sounds.



3. Hotel San Jose

1316 S. Congress 

Set in a revamped 1930s' motor lodge located near buzzy bars and music venues, this hip hotel is 2.5 miles from the Texas State Capital. The leafy cocktail bar and Jo's Coffee shop with the infamous "I love you so much" sign in the parking lot are two great reasons to stop here for your next photo op. 



4. The Austin Motel

1220 S. Congress

 Located south of the Colorado River, this historic, quirky motel dates back to 1938 and is within a 4-minute drive of popular South Congress Avenue and a 6-minute drive from the StatCapitol.



 

5. Mount Bonnell

Mount Bonnell, also known as Covert Park, is a prominent point alongside the Lake Austin portion of the Colorado River in Austin, Texas. It has been a popular tourist destination since the 1850s with some of the best views of the hill country west of Austin.
