    I used to live here and I go back for SXSW every year. It's Berkeley-lite.

    Austin is an eclectic mix of musicians, politicians, computer geeks and students.

Description

“The Eyes of Texas are Upon You.” That’s a song you might hear pretty often if you come to Austin during the college football season, and you might feel that way anyway even if you come here any other time of the year. You see, the thing is that there’s simply such an eclectic and funky vibe here that it’ll seem like the eyes of all Texas are upon the state capital. Besides, it was here that ... read more
Willie Nelson made a name for himself, president George W. Bush governed (the state capital is popular among tourists) and cyclist Lance Armstrong battled cancer. Visitors like to hit the bars and music clubs near UT, and this whole scene has its culmination every March with the South by Southwest Music Festival. 1,400 bands participate each year, so it’s no wonder why it’s right up there with Coachella and Lollapalooza. Hiking and biking is popular in the hills, and Barton Creek is always a good place to swim, tan and enjoy the Texan scenery. Popular day trips outside Austin are to New Braunfels and historic Gruene, Texas. The food is consistently a highlight here, so try some of the smoked brisket or sausage at The Salt Lick in Driftwood.
