Austin Visitor Center

The Austin Visitor’s Center is located at 209 E. 6th Street, across from the Driskill Hotel. It is open 9-5 and has a friendly, knowledgable staff who can give you free maps and help you decide what to do while you’re in town.  There, one can also find an excellent selection of quality gifts for the folks back home.

City Tours

Both the Austin Overtures Sightseeing, a 90 minute fun tour of the city, in a comfortable van and the fun Duck Adventures in an amphibian vehicle originate at the center several times a day. Reservations are recommended and sometimes a must for the tours. Both frequently sell out. Website is www.austintexas.org . Phone is 512-478-0098.
