Witness the Austin bats fly across Lady Bird Lake from Congress Bridge! The best time to see the famous bats is around sunset, but the nightly show can take place anywhere from 7:30 to 9:45 p.m.

Plan to arrive early in order to find parking and get your spot. It can take as long as 45 minutes for all of the bats to exit the bridge for the night.

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.
