Austin is well known for having the largest urban bat colony in the US, living in crevices underneath the Congress Avenue bridge in downtown Austin. Around dusk, folks gather on the bridge to watch nearly 1.5 million bats emerge on their nightly food run. It is quite a sight!
Hey Cupcake! is an Austin business that started in this little Airstream trailer in South Austin. Their cupcakes are excellent. They had so much success that they now have a real brick & mortar location on the North side of town. They also started a massive wave of trailer-based businesses in Austin: crepes, tacos, you name it and you can probably find a trailer selling it around here. The cool thing is that they are all good! Another thing that adds to the cool, funky vibe of this town.
