Whether you’re new to Austin or a born Austinite taking a historical tour of the capitol city is a great way to spend a day or evening. Austin can be explored several ways, you can tour the city by bus, by boat, by segway or scooter and even by duck. Each tour gives its own unique prospective of the city and worth the money if you have the time. However, if you only have time to experience one of these tours when you’re looking for things to do in Austin, I would spend an evening with the folks at the Austin Ghost Tours.
