  5. Halloween at Enchanted Rock – This event is a little outside of the Austin city limits, but being truly unique, we had to share! After taking in the beautiful views of the hill country, enjoy a trunk or treat, spooky campfire stories and a Halloween night hike. Don’t forget to bring a flashlight and wear comfy shoes!
