Austin Murals Map
One of my favorite things to do is search for Austin murals! We just hop in the car, turn up the radio, and drive around town taking funny photos. It’s a great way to spend the day with friends and family. Checking out the Austin murals is a great way to entertain guests/tourists but it’s also fun for locals too (find some adventure in your own backyard y’all)!!
To make your mural search easier, I’ve made a map of all of my favorite murals!! Hopefully the map will make it easier for you to plan a route and see all of Austin’s best murals!!
Here are some tips for using the map:
- Click on one of the purple cameras to see the location and a photo of the mural.
- In the upper left corner you’ll see a little box with an arrow, click on this box and a list of the murals will pop up (great tool if you’re looking for a specific mural). This list is also the route I’d recommend taking if you plan to drive to them all.
- Click on the star by “ATX Murals” to open this map in your google maps app, then you’ll be able to see your location compared to the map below (it’ll be easier to find the murals this way). Once you’ve clicked on the star, you’ll open your google maps app, click on “Saved”, then click on the “Maps” tab, and you should see the ATX Murals map.
Here are some mural tips I’ve learned over the years:
- If you’ve never done a mural search before, I recommend investing in a cell phone tripod with a remote clicker. I bought this tripod and remote combo set off Amazon a few years ago and I love it!! I use it all the time!! It’ll make group photos a lot easier and the remote clicker is so much easier than using the cell phone timer, definitely recommend!! If you do invest in the remote clicker, be sure to set your camera timer to 3 seconds (gives you time to hide the clicker before the photo takes).
- I recommend starting your journey in the morning and get to South Congress before 11am. South Congress will get pretty busy around lunch time and it’ll be harder to find parking in the afternoon. Park along South Congress and walk to all of the murals in the area (just along South Congress, you don’t walk too far you’re just starting off).
- The downtown murals are a little trickier to get too. You can park downtown close to the murals on 2nd street (recommend if you have a large group of people) or you can park at the downtown library (free for one hour) and scooter to the murals. I did this recently and it was a lot of fun!!
- Your map may not take you to the exact location, so walk around the corner and see if the mural is nearby. I tried to get the correct locations/addresses but ya never know it might be a little off.
- If your 100% certain you’re in the right location and you can’t seem to find the mural, don’t beat yourself up. Chances are the mural was painted over. It sucks but it happens. (If you think one of the murals I’ve posted is gone please let me know so I can remove it for others).
- I’m not a huge fan of the historic 6th street mural, but I added it to the list anyway. I feel like that intersection is a little sketch so I don’t like parking or walking around that area. Just be alert or skip it (at least until the city cleans that area up).
I can’t wait to see your mural adventures and the awesome things y’all come up with!! Be sure to use the hashtag #atxmuralsearch so we can share in the search together!! Also can you believe that I found a hashtag that hasn’t been used yet?!?! I feel like that’s so rare nowadays!! Anyway here are my photos from my #atxmuralsearch adventures, I’ve listed them in the route/order I’d recommend driving. Enjoy!!!!
Don’t forget to use #atxmuralsearch on your adventures!! Enjoy your day touring Austin!!
