I’m traveling with my husband and toddler to the Austin area for a couple of days. We are staying at Hotel San Jose. We would like to grab bbq at Terry Blacks around 4pm. Then we want to walk along the river trail to Capitol Cruises. There we plan to take the 7pm boat ride to see the bats. Would it be safe to walk to and from the hotel? The boat ride is an hour or so. Or should we just drive there? The distance doesn’t bother me. It seems like an easy walk. I’m more concerned with walking the area at night with a toddler and how safe the walk will be at around 8pm. It appears to only be about a 20 min walk and less than a mile away. If it is best to drive, where can we park that would be easy to visit Terry Blacks, the river and then head to Capital Cruises without moving the car?
Thanks for the help!
