♒️ Aquarius: Willie Nelson Statue | January 19–February 18

♓︎ Pisces: Lady Bird Lake | February 18–March 20
This water sign is on a constant quest to live in the moment, and nothing grounds a Pisces more than an afternoon along the shore of Lady Bird Lake.

♈︎ Aries: Pennybacker Bridge | March 20–April 19
Also known as the 360 Bridge, this landmark was the second bridge built with a cable support system. Climbing the short hike up a hill to get a bird’s eye view will give the headstrong Aries the joie de vivre they crave.

♉️ Taurus: Waterloo Greenway | April 19–May 20
This city-center green space provides the best of both worlds for a Taurus homebody to feel connected to the Earth and the city at the same time.

♊︎ Gemini: The Driskill | May 20–June 21
It takes two — or just one Gemini — to appreciate the both the historical significance and present-day cultural relevance of the oldest operating hotel in Austin.

♋️ Cancer: Barton Springs Pool | June 21–July 22
For the Cancer searching for a home away from home, look no further than Barton Springs Pool, one of the “crown jewels” of Austin that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

♌️ Leo: Littlefield Fountain | July 22–August 22
Like the dazzling Leo, the Littlefield Fountain is used to being the center of attention, and always looks great in photos.

♍️ Virgo: Mount Bonnell | August 22–September 22
A sensible place for a sensible sign, Mount Bonnell is a foolproof spot to take a visitor in town and a time-honored Austin attraction.

♎️ Libra: Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail | September 22-October 23
The possibilities along the Ann and Roy Butler Trail are endless, which can either be a good or bad thing for this indecisive sign. However, once they hit the lush trail, Libras will melt with ease.

♏️ Scorpio: Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge | October 23-November 22

♑️ Capricorn: Zilker Park | December 21–January 20
Austin’s “most-loved park” represents endless possibility for this enterprising sign. Whether it’s a music festival, a picnic get-together, or a solo walk, Zilker meets Capricorns where they are.
