Making Connections


Years ago when people talked about Austin they would quickly mention the music. But that's just the beginning of what they're saying these days. Austin is also home to a wonderful ballet, world-class museums, one-of-a-kind shopping and beautiful outdoor spaces. You can just as easily spend your morning paddling the lake as you can strolling through a celebrated history museum. And it's okay if you don't have time to fit it all in, you can just come back and visit us again.

Visit the Austin Convention and Visitor's Bureau for more information.

Recommendations from a local:

Great places to hang out:

Rainey Street (awesome bars, working professionals, gets you away from the 6th street tourist scene, good restaurants also - I like Bangers and Craft Pride but you can't go wrong)

East 6th (we call this dirty 6, it's got a fun funky vibe to it, lots of upcoming bars and restaurants here, my two favorites are Easy Tiger and Pete's Piano Bar - late night fun with piano)

South Congress Street  or SoCo (lots of fun shops to explore here and also great restaurants, my favorite place to eat is Perla's (seafood, amazing), Guero's (tex mex), Home Slice (pizza), Hopdoddy (awesome unique burgers), Hey Cupcake! (cupcakes) - so many fun things to do in SoCo)

Do you like beer??? Tons and tons and tons of breweries in town. 

Esther's Follies - awesome evening entertainment -

Lots of live music options generally - here's where I keep track of that:

Walk around Lady Bird Lake or rent stand up paddle boards or kayaks and get on the water:

Do you have a rental car? I recommend visiting Fredericksburg and the hill-country wineries.

Take in one of many food trucks - we are known pretty well for our awesome food trucks - my favorite food truck location is The Picnic on Barton Springs. And my favorite food trucks there are Mighty Cone, Hey Cupcake,  Turf N' Surf
