If your friend who lives in one of the condos downtown Austin or has been there for a vacation tells you loads of great stories about the place, chances are they are telling you the truth. Mind you, I’ve never been there but here’s one thing, Austin’s not escaping my to-visit list.
If you enjoy going to concerts and listening to live performances, then, Austin is the place to be as it’s considered as the live music capital of the world. Aside from the many bars and clubs playing great songs, it is in Austin where you will get to find huge annual music festivals such as the Urban Music Festival, Eeyore’s Birthday Party, Pachanga Festival and many more.
Is shopping your Achilles’ heel? If yes, then Austin will not let you down. With a long list of retail stores and boutiques for you to visit, you probably might need to look for economy or luxury condos for long term stay to satisfy your shopping hunger. Go hunt for a pair or two of authentic cowboy boots or grab a number of independent designer bags. Better yet, drop by The Domain, a 700,000 square feet shopping haven. That’s literally shop ‘til you drop!
Food and Dining
As a chef, I want to visit as many restaurants I can when there. It feels like it is my calling to keep my taste buds happy. Besides checking out bars and restaurants, I’ll definitely not miss the Austin Food & Wine Festival. Now that’s my kinda thing!
Are you looking for adventure? Austin offers you great outdoor activities such as water biking, paddle boarding, canoe paddling, hiking, cycling, golf - only to name a few.
“How about nightlife in Austin?”, you ask. It’s certainly party all night long, baby, so be sure to reserve loads of energy to keep you going!
