Bats at Congress Avenue Bridge

For a truly breathtaking, albeit chilling experience, get a spot on the Congress Avenue Bridge at dusk. When the sun sets, the millions of bats that dwell underneath the bridge take flight, creating a scene that looks like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock film. “Bat Bridge,” as it is affectionately called, is perhaps one of the most unique of all the Austin nightlife activities.
