Happy April Fools’ Day!!! We aren’t pranking anyone today, but we are celebrating this beautiful month in Austin that offers a natural beauty that is unlike any other in the country…the Texas Bluebonnet!
The Texas state flower – designated in 1901 – offers residents and visitors alike an opportunity to welcome spring and make a memory after a cold, damp winter!!!
The bluebonnets are already out in most places and people are welcome to stop along one of Austin’s many roadways and take a photo to commemorate the beginning of the new season! Not only is it a great way to spend a lovely afternoon, but it’s also free!!
Here are just a few of the many places around the Austin area that you can see a sea of bluebonnets!

- St. Edward’s University
- Montopolis Drive
- Toll Road 130 & FM 969 in East Austin
