Greetings from Austin Postcard

Location: S. 1st St. & W Annie

This colorful and eclectic mural is a must-see. The painting contains lots of Austin landmarks—from the University of Texas tower and Barton Springs to the gorgeous red granite Capitol building. This an ideal spot for new residents.

Willie for President

Location: S. Congress and Elizabeth St.

Country music lovers and those who want to endorse an Austin legend for president will love this mural. Visit the visage of The Red Headed Stranger, Willie Nelson, on South Congress Avenue. While you’re at it, maybe honor another Austin institution with a slice of delicious pizza from nearby Home Slice.

I Love You So Much

Location: 1300 S. Congress Ave. 

Arguably the most famous mural in Austin (and possibly Texas itself), the “I Love You So Much” mural that emblazons the side of Jo’s Coffee on South Congress Ave. is a testament to love, resilience, and the power of language. Bring your significant other and pose for a kiss!

The “Hi, How Are You?” Frog 

Location: Guadalupe and 21st St.

Painted by the late musician Daniel Johnston, The Hi, How Are You? mural is a landmark for indie aficionados the world over. Johnston’s struggles with mental illness inspired the Hi, How Are You Project—a nonprofit organization dedicated to destigmatize mental health conversations.
