The place formerly known as Antoinette's Leap is not only the highest point in the city, but surely it's the most romantic. The views and vistas, day or night, dazzle the eye, and the legend of the beauty who leaped to her death after her lover was killed by Indians adds a Hollywood touch that's sure to make the object of your affections melt in your arms. From the hazy hills and the winding river during the day to the panoply of stars and city lights at night, Austin's magic is laid out like a feast before your eyes.
