O. Henry Home & Museum
The O. Henry Home & Museum gives visitors a glimpse into the life of William Sidney Porter when he lived in Austin. During his prison term, he decided on the pen name O. Henry, and he went on to write classics such as "The Ransom of Red Chief" and "Gifts of the Magi." The knowledgeable guide will take you through each room and tell interesting stories about his family and how he became an embezzler.
Austin Fire Museum
This museum is located in Austin's Central Fire Station No. 1, which is the busiest station in the city. Some of what you will see includes uniforms from the turn of the century, a Hook and Ladder No. 1 lantern, memorabilia from Texas' first African American firefighters, and so much more.
Bat Watching on Congress Avenue Bridge
Every night from March to October, 1.5 million bats emerge from under the bridge approximately twenty minutes before sunset. They have called the bridge home since its redesign in 1980, and they consume up to 20,000 pounds of bugs nightly.
