Best Place To People-Watch

Town Lake Hike & Bike Trail

Tourists snapping photos with SRV, die-hard athletes crosstraining for the next Iron Man, lawyers jogging off a day of stress, happy puppies rambling along with their body-conscious masters, beginners, race walkers, cyclists... There are people of all shapes, sizes, colors, and creeds at any given time on the Town Lake trail. Peoplewatching can take place at a particularly beautiful spot beside the lake at sunset, or it can be done on the run, covering the trail from head to foot. Everyone's friendly and there is an unspoken "no judgments" policy in the air. We like to go when it's real hot, just to see what kind of crazy people would possibly be there -- excluding ourselves, of course.
