Waterloo. City of the Violet Crown. Bat City. Silicon Hills.
Those are just four of the nicknames that help “keep Austin weird”. Located in the center of Texas, Austin is considered the live music capital of the world. This state capital has been celebrating Eeyore’s birthday since 1963 and has found that breakfast tacos really do keep the city together (we heard Juan in a Million has some great ones!)
Austin is a fast-growing city with over 5,500 start-ups and tech companies calling it home. From a famous musical nightlife to numerous wonders of nature in its backyard, Austin has a lot to offer. We hope to see you there!
Lady Bird Lake + Hiking Trails
Winding through trees, bridges, and more along the shores of the Colorado River, the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail stretch from the Tom Miller Dam on the West side to the Longhorn Dam on the East. The trail’s 10.1 miles are some of the most popular in all of Austin.
Live Music + BBQ Crawls
Austin Detours’ “Real Austin” Tour gives you an inside scoop on living life as a local. They also feature a Live Music Crawl that shows you why Austin earned the reputation as the “Live Music Capital of the World.” Salt Lick & Winery Tour includes eating at the legendary Salt Lick BBQ and two stops at wineries in Austin’s hill country.
