The biggest in the area and home to a healthy population of large-mouth bass, catfish, carp and sunfish, Lady Bird Lake has a large recreational following. Enormous carp are caught here regularly, and you’ll see sincere locals along the shoreline with bobber and smile in place. A placid and constant-level lake, Lady Bird Lake is ideal for canoeing, fishing and bird-watching for those who don’t indulge in fishing, while photographers can be seen shooting sunsets over two of the lake’s pedestrian-only bridges.
Absolutely worth it. Saw parts of Austin I KNOW I would not have seen. Austin has some hidden gems and the electric bike tour allowed us to see them with ease.
GREAT tour! So much fun seeing the sights of austin on the electric bikes and our tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable! The electric bike was so much fun and very easy to get used to. Highly recommmend this tour!
