About Austin Visitor Center

Austin is the capital city and the 4th most populous city in the state of Texas. For years, Austin has been consistently listed in the top 10 best cities to live in, even getting the first spot in the years 2017 and 2018. This can be attributed to the city’s diverse mix of musicians, tech workers, college students, LGBTQ individuals, and blue-collar employees, which adds to its unique charm. Austin caters to all types and ages of people; whether you’re playing tourist in your own city or a vacationer who wants to see the best the city has to offer, there’s something here for you.

Being the fast-paced city that it is, along with its different nooks, hidden gems, and subcultures, it can be challenging to figure out your plans while in Austin. For those not sure how to dive in, the best place to start would be the Austin Visitor Center. Located in downtown Austin, the Visitor Center has friendly volunteers who can give you insider knowledge on activities, shops, restaurants, music venues, and other information you need to know. The Visitor Center also offers guided tours and is home to the city’s official gift shop, which is a great place to do some souvenir shopping. Bounce has partners near the center and all over Austin to help give you a hassle-free experience while exploring the city.

  • Bullock Texas State History Museum: Named after the 38th lieutenant governor of the state, the museum highlights the colorful history of Texas through different iconic pieces. These include the space suit used by Edgar Mitchell during his Apollo 14 mission and the actual Goddess of Liberty statue that once stood at the dome of the State Capitol. Big bags are not allowed inside the museum. Store your items at a Bounce location near the University of Texas campus. 

  • Ann W. Richards Congress Ave Bridge: This bridge crosses over Lady Bird Lake and is one of the most iconic places in Austin. Not only is it a great spot to watch the sunset, but you can also see a colony of bats flying over the bridge every evening. To have a stress-free time at the bridge and surrounding areas, find a Bounce partner nearby and drop off your things. 

  • Zilker Metropolitan Park: Undoubtedly the most well-known green space in the city, the Zilker Metropolitan Park is a favorite for outdoor enthusiasts. It is also home to a number of famous attractions such as the Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Botanical Garden, and Austin Nature & Science Center. With the size of the park, the best way to maximize your time here would be to temporarily store your bag at one of Bounce’s locations in the area.

  • McKinney Falls State Park: Situated approximately 10 miles southeast of Austin, the McKinney Falls State Park is a great escape from the city. Apart from the creek, the park also has a 9-mile trail for hikers and bikers. As well, there is a campsite for those who want to stay overnight. Before heading out to McKinney, it would be best to drop your bag off at a Bounce partner in the city. 

  • The Driskill: Located at the corner of Sixth and Brazos, is The Driskill, a Romanesque Revival-style hotel and an Austin staple. Established in 1886, it is the oldest operating hotel in Austin and continues to be one of its most popular. Whether you’re visiting the historic building or going for a meal or drink at The Driskill, store your bags at a Bounce partner beforehand.

  • Mexic-Arte Museum: Located in the heart of downtown Austin, the Mexic-Arte Museum is dedicated to highlighting traditional and contemporary Latin American and Mexican art and culture. Backpacks and large bags aren’t allowed inside the venue. As an alternative, leave your things at a Bounce location downtown.

  • Esther’s Follies: Found on the prominent Sixth Street, Esther’s Follies is a modern vaudeville that presents magic shows, singing, dancing, and other sketches. The show has been running since 1977 and has gone on to become a tradition in the city. Big bags and backpacks are prohibited inside the venue, so if you need to store your things somewhere, head over to a Bounce partner in the downtown area.

  • Allen’s Boots: This Austin institution, located on the famous SoCo district, is the best place to see or purchase cowboy boots. The store offers thousands of varieties, including traditional Western boot to more exotic Caiman crocodile skin booties. Make your visit to Allen’s a hassle-free one by leaving your things at a Bounce location in the SoCo area.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
