UFCU Disch-Falk Field

1300 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd 
Home to the Texas Longhorns since 1975, the baseball field is a must-visit if you’re in town during the spring and early summer (if you’re more of a softball fan, Red and Charline McCombs Field is just northeast of the stadium, on the corner of Comal and 20th streets). 

Oakwood Cemetery

1601 Navasota St 
The oldest city-owned cemetery in Austin is worth a visit for history buffs and the morbidly curious. It spans over 40 acres and includes sections devoted to minority populations. Notable figures buried there include Susanna Dickinson, one of the few survivors of the Alamo; Dr. Annie Webb Blanton, the first woman elected to statewide office in Texas; the unfortunately named Ima Hogg, daughter of former Texas Gov. Jim Hogg; and a host of former Texas politicians, philanthropists and more.
