Sure, taking the steep climb up Mount Bonnell to take a few selfies is one of the most
tourist-y things you can do in Austin, but there's something to be said for vacationing in your own town. One of the city's tried and true dating ideas (going all the way back to the 1850s) is to pack a picnic basket and slowly make your way up the 102 steps until you reach the full 775 feet. Once you’ve made it, give your sweetie a kiss under the limestone pavilion. They’ve earned it.
