Baylor Street Wall Tour

This is one of those Austin gems that really showcases what the city is all about. It’s one of the largest graffiti walls in Austin, full of life, character and charm. You really have to just venture out there yourself to fully appreciate it. The girl I used to babysit and I would always go to the “castle & art wall” for an adventure because it was such a unique thing to do.

I was there last week with my friend while she was getting her engagement pictures taken, and it’s still such a cool and interesting place.

You can climb around and see so many different layers to the art, and it also has a pretty incredible view of downtown. It’s usually not too crowded, but there were several people there last time I was there taking pictures and enjoying the truly wonderful canvas in front of them.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
