Eclectic experiences in a capital city:
Down to earth yet sophisticated. Laid-back and cosmopolitan. Austin’s personality is often quirky, a mix of educated flair and a touch of Texas bravado. Over the past three decades, the small university town where Willie Nelson crafted his signature musical style has grown into a bustling capital city with world-renowned festivals, top-notch attractions, a glittering skyline and 1.9 million people in the metropolitan area.
Austin’s live music scene is legendary, and the action is concentrated in the Warehouse District as well as the Sixth Street and Red River entertainment districts. The city’s musical crown jewel is the Continental Club, featuring a solid lineup of rock, blues and country performers. Other popular venues include Broken Spoke, Antone’s, Stubb’s Bar-B-Q, Elysium and Emo’s. Be sure to browse the extensive music selection at Waterloo Records, one of the few independent record stores left in the nation.
Learn the fascinating story of the Lone Star State at the Bullock Texas State History Museum, brimming with exhibits, artifacts and a can’t-miss IMAX experience. The Blanton Museum on the University of Texas campus is an art-lover’s dream, featuring more than 18,000 pieces of European, American and Latin American works of art. Stop at the visitor center at the Texas State Capitol and take a free, guided tour of the massive building. At 92 meters tall, this National Historic Landmark is actually taller than the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
For breakfast, chow down on Migas Tacos from Veracruz All Natural Taco Truck at Radio Coffee in the South Lamar area bedecked in kitschy wood paneling. Take a cue from Dr. Joe: “You’ve got to hit up a food truck or three while you’re in Austin, simply because there are so many unique restaurants on wheels to choose from.”
The Springs are located in the very lush Zilker Park, where the green outdoors against a backdrop of city life thrive together in perfect harmony.
Austin, Texas, is known for many things — live music, taco trucks, friendly locals and world-class BBQ, to name a few!.
