Things to do in East Riverside area of Austin

I booked an AirBnB place off the beaten path in East Riverside Austin - with the place being on Riverside Farms Road. While I've gathered plenty of suggestions for things to do in Downtown/East/Northwest Austin, I'm hoping for suggestions around this part of town. Ideally we would like to walk, but are also open to public transportation and Car2Go.

I think we're pretty easy to please - enjoying eating, drinking, art, live music, nature, museums and anything else of note. We don't have a set budget, but I don't want to do anything too crazy in prices!

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions!

    Skip the line at Franklin's BBQ and hit up The Blue Ox BBQ I find it pretty damn tasty! BuzzMill (next to Blue Ox) is a cool coffee shop. Just south of Blue OX / BuzzMill is the new Boardwalk. Take a stroll along this walkway into town. You can also catch a show at Emo's which is right around the corner from you.

    PS: I'd rent a bike. It's my favorite way to get around Austin.

      ATX does have a bike share program. You might want to check them out. https://austin.bcycle.com/ I've only rented a bike for a day at a time. When I do I rent from http://bicyclesportshop.com/ You might want to google bike rentals and compare the costs. · (0 likelikes)
