Keep Austin weird
For me, travel is all about finding local flavor and Austin has no shortage of that.
After a few days exploring Austin, I’m starting to understand the “keep Austin weird” slogan that’s plastered all over local businesses, downtown murals and social media. Austin is weird. And I like it.
We gawked over Christmas lights; drooled over food trucks; hiked; laughed ourselves silly playing retro video games in a bar made from shipping containers; scoured independent bookstores, listened to live music at historic venues; discovered curious antiques at vintage shops across the city; and had a throwback roller skate date night.
I’m not convinced my words would do this city justice so here are some images of the local, Austin flavor I loved so much. Enjoy.
Food trucks, breweries and music are our go-to in a new place. Where do you find local flavor in a new city?
