Sharing our favorite Austin Murals and where to find them!

Austin Murals

We’ve lived in Austin for nearly 17 years, and I’ve finally compiled a list of Things to do in Austin with Kids as well as Where to take Austin Skyline pictures.

I have a slight obsession with colorful walls, and when I travel, I try to find a few by doing a wall crawl in that city. I can’t believe I haven’t shared before my favorite Austin Murals, but TODAY IS THE DAY!

All you need if your phone and a trusty phone tripod (or extra person!).

I’ve traveled to the Austin murals here and there over the years, but recently when my kids had a day off from school, and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, I had the idea to hop around and visit the Austin murals, and take pictures with them as a fun activity.

I pulled up a fun Austin Mural Guide from Carrie Colbert, and had my kids skim through it.  Each of them picked a wall they wanted to visit. I’m also going to share a few of our favorite Austin murals that we have visited in the past.

Austin Street Art

Austin has a lot of great street art.  A few of the locations we selected were already painted over with new murals.  And we found a few others along our route.

I mapped out the order we should go, and first was a stop at Kellie’s Baking Co. I love the Texas You’re Here mural outside the front door.

Location: Kellie’s Baking Co. 5245 Burnet Rd. Austin, TX 78756

Just a hop, skip, and a jump down the street was this super fun I Love Austin wall:

My oldest chose the cloud wall that is on the side of an Amy’s Ice Cream on Burnet Road. It’s a popular local ice cream joint people love to frequent. The lighting wasn’t GREAT mid-day and we had to work around a tree on the right, but we snagged this walking picture.

Austin Cloud Wall

Location: Amy’s Ice Cream 3500 Guadalupe St. Austin, TX 78705

Just RIGHT NEXT to the cloud mural on the left was this fun bright geometric wall. We snapped a few pictures here, too. Both of these would have been better light in the afternoon (at least in February).

As we were driving up to the cloud mural, I spotted this amazing TEXAS mural a block away on the side of Planet K.  This is a quick walk from Amy’s Ice Cream.  There are actually two murals.  From the street you can see this map of Texas.

And on the side, this fun Texas mural.

The color block wall below was tricky to photograph. We got lucky that one car left, but as we went to snap a shot, another one had to wait for us to come in.

Location: Birds Barbershop 1902 Congress Ave.

As we drove in the back alley behind Birds Barbershop, I was so excited to spot THIS great  Love from Austin mural.  I had seen pictures of it before, but didn’t know where it was located. It’s on the backside of the barbershop. There is also a Torchy’s Tacos across the street, so stop for lunch while you’re at it!

We then traveled a bit north to the Domain shopping center for a mural my older daughter picked, but sadly found it was no longer there. I had spotted this green wall as we looked around, so stopped to snap a few pics!

While you’re at The Domain, head on over to the Erin Condren store and snap a picture with these colorfully beautiful steps!

That was the end of the Austin murals that day, but here are a few of our other favorites that we have visited in the past. Not quite a mural, but the Austin blue tile wall is one of my favorites! Just need to dress accordingly.

The Don’t Mess with Texas mural is on a busy 6th street, so tricky to photograph from a great angle.

I took my grandparents to the You’re my Butter Half mural, it’s fun and iconic!

Greetings from Austin. I have a bunch of these shots, but of course I can’t find the full wall picture as I create this Austin Murals guide, so here is a partial shot for now. This one is REALLY popular, and when we drove by the other day, there was a crowd there waiting for pictures.

Location: South 1st and Annie (my favorite Gourdough’s doughnuts is nearby, too)

One of my FAVORITES that I cannot find the picture we took with it has a cute polaroid camera and picture, and says “Howdy” which is so cute. Once I find the one with us on it, I’ll swap it out.

Here is a map of Austin murals to take you to all of my favorites:

 

And here is my tripod that I used.  I pack it for every vacation and outing so I can be in the pictures with my family!
