Senior travel isn't has highly promoted in Austin as it is in many other destinations. Austin doesn't receive many "winter Texans," who come down from the northern U.S. fleeing the cold. Still, you'll find standard senior discounts at most attractions, such as the museums and recreational facilities, but most often, it amounts to only $1 or $2 discount.

Austin's Old Bakery and Emporium, 1006 Congress Ave. (tel. 512/477-5961;, not only sells crafts and baked goods made by seniors, but also serves as a volunteer center for people over 50. It's a good place to find out about any senior activities in town.
