360 Bridge Overlook in Austin, Texas

I spent another great weekend in Austin and really enjoyed the sunset on my last day at 360 overlook at Pennybacker Bridge. This has to be one of the best spots in Austin to enjoy a sunset.

My tradition after going to 360 overlook is to stop by Ramen Tatsuya for some of the best ramen I’ve ever had.

Parking for 360 overlook can be a bit dangerous since it’s on the side of a highway. People park on either side of the highway, but just be careful when parking here.

Pennybacker Bridge or more commonly “360 Bridge” spans 1150 feet and has a very unique design with it’s central arched span. The design keeps Lake Austin free of support columns due to recreational boaters. When built the bridge was only the second bridge in the world with such a design.

The flat cliffy overlooking the bridge is especially great for a picnic.
