GUIDE

Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the World® and with more music venues per capita than any other U.S. city, it has earned that title with an unbridled passion for sound. The eating and drinking scene is just as vibrant as the live music, offering up a delightful spread of true Texas BBQ, authentic street tacos, upscale Japanese hotpot and dive bars with years of character.

No visit to Austin is complete without visiting Lady Bird Lake (it’s some of the best views of the city) and then taking on the city’s famed nightlife, whether on energetic Sixth Street, laidback Rainey Street or at your pick of scores of live music venues. Top off the Austin experience with a tour of the Texas State Capitol and enjoying one of many fun and funky festivals. And with its location in the heart of Texas Hill Country, Austin is a prime launching spot for winery tours around Texas’ wine region and interludes in the charming towns. However you choose to explore Austin, you’ll come away with new memories of a one-of-a-kind place.
