If food trucks and live music are more your thing, head to Austin. Austin has a little bit of everything. We recommend spending the morning hiking or exploring a natural swimming spring, spend the afternoon indulging in BBQ and world renowned Tex Mex and spend the evening at one of the many local theaters listening to live music. And don’t forget – did you really go to Austin if you didn’t post a picture in front of one of the many Instagram-famous murals? We didn’t think so either. You can find a complete list of murals here.
