3800 Mt Bonnell Rd, Austin, TX 78731, USA
Texas’ Capital Under the StarsAustin, the capital of the Lone Star State, prides itself on its outdoor spaces, with Lake Austin and the flowing Colorado River, sprawling Zilker Park, and the popular recreation area, Lake Travis. Another one of the great spots in the city to escape to is Mt. Bonnell, along the banks of Lake Austin. Also referred to as Covert Park, this area is just removed enough from the city lights to see the stars come out—and with its slightly raised elevation of 780 feet above sea level, you’ll feel you’re just a step closer to the starry night sky.
