There so many things I love about Austin, but one of my favorite things Austin has to offer is the amazing street art. People come from all over to see the creative wall art done by talented local artists. I’ve been wanting to do a mural tour for years now – and when I saw my friend and fellow creative Carrie Colbert’s Austin Mural Tour I was so inspired!

Purple Stripes at Parts & Labour Location: 1704 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704 Carries Note: Note: Sadly, this business has now been demolished for a new development. Nevertheless, we had to include it, as it was a favorite of ours from the Austin wall scene.
Since its re-development, you will still find amazing wall art in this location. We stopped by to see the new art work that has since be created. The wall has many different sections with different color stories throughout

Yum, Fresh mural at Steel City Pops Location: 3001 Guadalupe St, Austin, TX 78705 Carries Note: Particularly during the hot summer months, you’ll find a snack at Steel City Pops especially refreshing! Wall faces south, so it’s often in sun, but that only enhances the summery feel of the location.
