Whether you are a resident, live nearby, or just passing through, did you may know that Austin, Texas is known as the “Live Music Capital of the World”? In addition to its fantastic live music scene, Austin has a lot more to offer, including some great restaurants, fantastic local culture, and so much more.
As for music, you can catch the biggest and hottest musical acts like Van Halen and the Zac Brown Band, or your favorite local groups. Venues can range from the massive Circuit of the Americas, to small clubs and theaters. So no matter if you love rock or country or something in between, there is a music show going on for you.
In addition to large musical events, the Circuit of the Americas also hosts some fantastic motorsports events, including the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix. In fact, this track is the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the United States. Definitely a must see!
Make sure to take in some of the great history. While in Austin, be sure to go by the State Capitol building and then head to the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library to learn about one of our past presidents.
Then, for some great urban hiking and scenery, take a walk around the Lady Bird Lake, named in honor of President Johnson’s wife, “Lady Bird” (her real name was Claudia Alta Taylor). And, you can even head out on the water for some kayaking or canoeing.
If you are looking for something the kids will love? Make sure to head to the Austin Aquarium. There are over 35 exhibits in this expansive location, including an aviary, cold water tanks, and tropical fish. You can visit a rainforest, touch a stingray, and even hold a reptile. The Austin Aquarium provides multiple interactive displays and educational programs, helping your kids to learn about the environment and ecosystems as they have fun.
If you love all things Texas, as most of us Texans do, head to the Bullock Texas State History museum. Here you can learn everything you could ever want about the history of our great Lone Star State.
Grab a bite in Austin at one of the many top-ranked restaurants in the world. According to TripAdvisor, this includes a range of American, Southern, Mexican, Asian, and Contemporary cuisines. Stop by Eddie V’s Prime Seafood Truluck’s Seafood for unparalleled fish, or try La Barbecue if you’re in the mood for slow-cooked smoky flavor. Two other hits are Uchi and Uchiko, both of which are known for their Asian cuisine. These are just some of the many great restaurants in the area.
