Spend a day in Austin cycling alongside the Colorado River and after your finished find yourself meandering through the quirky and eclectic stores in South Congress, I spent two days in Austin and found that it was enough time to get a feel for the city. For a contrast to city life, slow down the pace, and see why the little town of Smithville is a popular location for film producers after leaving Austin I spent two nights in Smithville.
We started our day very early in the morning to take advantage of the sun and the good weather, the view and the feeling of peace in this place is indescribable.
When you're looking for a weekend adventure, or making rest stops on a long road trip, Colorado River is a great place to detour! Explore all the amazing sights to see along the river, and engage in activities like camping, boating, hiking and more! Highly recommended
