Tour tour of the Austin's spirited sites begins as night descends on the city. Meet your local guide on Lavaca Street for a short training in the basics of Segway use. Once you’ve got your bearings on the electric two-wheeler, you’ll set off through the dimming street, starting with a cruise down Congress Avenue, through Austin’s historic center. Admire the Texas State Capitol Building and stop by the Driskill Hotel, where a company of ghosts — including the hotel’s founder — are said to roam the halls. Hear the tragic story of a young girl who perished on the grand staircase and of the ‘Suicide Brides’ who chose the same bathroom to die in 20 years apart (to the day!).
Glide down 6th street, Austin’s bustling entertainment district. You'll pass the Austin Convention Center and check out evening revelers living it up at some of the area’s popular bars and venues. En route to the river, you’ll come upon the famous Austin Moonlight Towers, constructed in the 19th century as a preventative measure against the rampage killings of the 'Servant Girl Annihilator', a serial killer who targeted women in 1884.
Continue to Lady Bird Lake, where your local guide will share facts about at the intersection of the Colorado River and the city. Catch snapshot views of the urban skyline and see the massive bat colony that nests in the Congress Avenue Bridge. Visitors from mid-March to early November may have a chance to watch the cloud of bats burst from their nests at dusk.
Between stops, discover other creepy histories that permeate the city. Your 2.5-hour tour returns to the starting point on Lavaca Street in the evening.
