Austin Local Deals
For years, music fans and techies flocked to Austin for the South by Southwest festival each spring, but now travelers of all types have discovered Austin and all of its lovely eccentricities. Anchored by both the flagship school of the state and the capital infrastructure, things to do here blend the new and the old seamlessly, often on the same block.
To see Austin well, you need at least two days to do things like stroll Sixth Street and the area South of Congress for shops, bars, eateries and more. Take a trip just outside of town to cool off at Barton Springs, a natural limestone pool fed by underground sources. Downtown check out favorites like Austin City Limits music venue plus the flagship Whole Foods store, a destination in its own right.
