The Fairytale Lakeside Boardwalk In Austin That Stretches As Far As The Eye Can See

The Colorado River runs right through the heart of Austin, and its crown jewel is Lady Bird Lake and the 10-mile-long Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail that provides recreation for Austin residents and guests of the city. In 2014, a one-mile-long boardwalk completed the trail, and it’s truly a fairytale lakeside boardwalk.
