How To Make An Entrance

A great city knows how to greet people and make them feel welcome and special. Downtown Austin is just that kind of place and the Ann Richards Bridge aka Congress Avenue Bridge is the firm and friendly handshake that draws you in and over the Lady Bird Lake portion of the Colorado River. The bridge is six lanes wide with generous sidewalks and impressive views of the sunrise, high-rises and one of the largest urban bat colonies in the USA emerges from underneath the bridge at sunset.
