What's a unique thing everyone should do in Texas?
There are many unique things to do around Texas, one of which is visiting the Congress Avenue Bridge in downtown Austin, which spans Lady Bird Lake. What makes this bridge so incredibly unique is the fact that it's home to approximately 1.5 million Brazilian free-tail bats, making it one of North America's largest urban bat colonies. From mid-March to November, these bats emerge from underneath the bridge at dusk to go look for food. Over the years, this has become one of Texas' most unusual, yet unique, tourist attractions. People from near and far come to see these bats. Visit this website to learn more.
