    WOOT AUSTIN, TX! I’ve lived here a year, and every day I find cool new things, places and people. Such a fantastic city!

    Here are my recommendations:
    1. Hopdoddy Burger Bar off South Congress. Incredible drinks and tasty burgers!
    2. BBQ is a must-have when visiting. Hit up Franklin’s BBQ as early as you can to get first dibs on the finest BBQ ATX has to offer. Once they sell out, they sell out! If you can’t do Franklin’s, Rudy’s is a cheap and tasty option. But The Salt Lick has held the #1 spot of THE BEST BBQ for many years here in Austin.
    3. I’m a fan of Cheer Up Charlie’s for nightlife. It’s a LGBT bar, but everyone is so amazingly friendly. You will definitely cheer up 🙂 I’m also a fan of Liberty Bar, it holds Paul Qui’s (Top Chef Texas Winner) East Side Kings food trailer in the back. Two birds, one stone!
    4. Wouldn’t hurt to see if Mohawk has any cool bands you may like. I love catching my favorite bands there! Their bar has portraits of very beardy-moustache-y men. My kind of eye candy 😉
    5. Of course, you must visit the Capitol. It’s free!
    6. Swing by the Long Center & take a picture on their patio. Best place for a skyline view of our great city.
    7. While at the Long Center, take a 4 mile walk around Town Lake! Along the way, you’ll find a place to rent a canoe or kayak. For $15, it’s a great workout and way to experience Austin as an Austinite!
    8. Maybe you wanna meet up for coffee at Austin Java? I’m there almost every day. Love their fair-trade, local brew. MmmMMM!
    9. YOU MUST MUST visit the Whole Foods off Lamar & 6th. It’s where all the magic began. You’ll find everything here. Fresh, natural foods. Nice places to sit & drink and there’s even a playground on the top level! Let your inner child go wild!
    10. Last but not least, take a stroll down South Congress. So many neat shops and food trailers to try. You also must make a pit stop at Big Top Candy Shop. Sweets galore!

    Hope that’s enough recommendations! Hit me up via twitter if you need any suggestions! @atxtrina Enjoy Austin and feel free to be as weird as you wish ?

    Wow, didn’t realise there was so much to do there. My lil bro is a massive Stevie Ray Vaughan fan (who apparently hails from Austin, so he tells me).

    That isn’t my neck of the woods, so I can’t really help you on the list. It does sound like quite a drive, so I hope that all went well.
