Austin. I love it, I miss it, and if you have not been, just go.
Growing up 45 minutes north of Austin, no one cared nearly as much as they do now about this funky little bike riding city, but lately its popularity and booming growth prove otherwise. Celebrities, Musicians, and Bloggers grace this cities instagrammable restaurants and streets frequently, especially during festivals like Austin City Limits and SXSW for music and fun.
Each visit to the Texas Capital makes me love it more. Quirky charm with a small town vibe means there’s a little something for everyone no matter where you go. From queso and chips, tacos, pretty people, prickly pear margaritas, heat hot temps, and plenty of rooftop pools to sink into while the sun shines and the music plays. It’s a guaranteed good time.
Stops at my favorite restaurants included Snack Bar Austin and Cafe No Se at the South Congress Hotel. A short taxi ride to South Congress will give you all the shopping, walking, and snacking your heart desires. Stop by the I LOVE YOU SO MUCH wall, grab a cup of java at Jo’s, hit up local shops like Parts and Labour (supporting local artists work), The Gypsy Wagon, Maya Star, Blackmail, and grab a drink at Hotel San Jose.
