    The grounds of this estate are well maintained and create a beautiful backdrop and surroundings for outdoor sculptures. We could only find a permanent map near the building, so we walked randomly thro...  more »

    Perhaps this place is best experienced when you know in advance what you can expect to see and do there. You should know what the place is, and what it is not. To say that it has a sculpture garden wo...  more »

    I attended the Indie House Events launch at this beautiful venue. The parking is street parking so for bigger events I am unsure if they offer a different option but, I would opt for valet parking if you are having a wedding or classier affair. The grounds are gorgeous but, make sure you tell your guests to wear flats or shoes they can walk down stairs and across unpaved areas. The view at the bottom near the water is impeccable. I could see a beautiful wedding taking place here especially since they have a section for a ceremony with tiered seating for optimal views and picture taking options for all guests. I imagine that the area that we were in, which as water view access, would be great for a tented reception. I didn't see any bathroom options so, I can't comment on that but, overall this is a very beautiful venue with well manicured lawns that worked great for the event that I was at and I am sure it would for many others. It definitely has many photo op areas with lush greenery!

    Perfect place for couples, families with kids who want to create something artsy or just walk around!

    Serene and green but rather small - still a good spot to chill.

    Laguna Gloria is part of The Contemporary (formerly the Austin Museum of Art) and a beautiful property near Lake Austin. My main experiences here have been the annual La Dolce Vita Food and Wine Festival that serves as a fundraiser for the art school. I've volunteered for the event several years in a row and love seeing all the new artwork that gets added year to year.

    The inside portions are small, but the sprawling pathways through trees and beside the lake are spotted with interesting sculpture.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
