Instagram Mural Guide to Austin, Texas
Music isn’t the only scene in Austin, Texas that you’ll want to experience on your next trip to this capital city. Beautiful murals are everywhere and have become a tourist favourite for people of all ages! Instagram and TikTok creators, like myself, especially love to visit these places for great photos and video content. I wanted to create this FREE Austin mural guide with a handy Google map so that you can easily experience these walls by car or on foot. Although there are TONS of locations in the city, I just included all of murals that are conveniently located on South Congress Avenue. You’ll love this area of the city, with lots of great shops and places to eat.
South Congress Avenue Murals
Scroll to the end of this blog post to find an interactive Google Map with all of these Instagram wall locations! Each little icon has an address and photo attached to it so that it is easy for you to locate. As a photographer, I always like to know the direction each mural is facing so I’ve added that for each location. Cloudy days are always the best for photos because you don’t have to deal with direct sunlight and weird shadows but Austin is a very sunny spot so sometimes you’ll just have to make the best of it, like I did!
