Bright lights, big city.

I could gush about this topic forever and ever, so I will try to contain my love for Austin at night.  There is something magical about the twinkling lights of the city, and as you drive south on I-35 into the city, the Frost Bank Tower will act as your super-modern beacon to Austin night life.

Even if you aren’t one for bars or clubs, you can wander the streets and marvel at the architecture and lighting.  Get a group of friends and drive around the streets with the music blaring, and take pictures as you go – the effect of the blurry stripes of red, yellow, green, and blue filling up your camera screen will mesmerize you.

Or head on over to the capitol! The lawns are prime spots for reliving childhood – a roll down one of the hills is something every Austinite should experience, and when you’re cloaked in the night, the only laughter you’ll hear is your own.

Another great spot at night in the city is the lake. As I am focusing on the Austin night lights, you should know that the lake becomes a wonderful mirrored sheet that sparkles and shimmers, competing with the sky for your rapt attention.

Our fabulous skyline is just that much more glorious in the dark. Get out there and enjoy it, Austin!
