Snake Island. Austin, Texas
The Austin skyline from east Austin. That's Snake Island (according to google maps) in the lower right. Also called “Hobo Island,” the small 2,000-square-foot landmass has no official signage or landing area, according to atlas obscura web site. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department doesn’t acknowledge it as a site of interest. It’s just there. In the middle of everything and few people, aside from some seasoned kayakers and fishers, seem to know it, says atlas obscura.
