I visited Austin Tx for SXSW and it was amazing the people were great, the drinks were cheap and the city was alive with music. Instead of writing a long synopisis of what I did in Austin I picked 3 things that I find amazing about the Capital City.
1.Live Music and great shopping all at the same time!
I went to SOCO to do some shopping and ran into Cisco Adler (singer from the group Shwayze and no this is not him in the picutre).
2. Really great food sold on the street.
Hey Cupcakes http://www.heycupcake.com/austin_cupcake_story.htm These cupcakes are cheap and taste way better then the expensive cupcakes sold in bakeries. You can find these cupcakes on South Congress street. The pizza at Ropollo's is also amazing after a long night of bar hopping.
3. Amazing views!
Hamilton Pool, Dipping Springs Tx: There is usually a waterfall but I guess the lack of ran in Texas dried it up. I advise anyone taking a trip to Austin to take some time out and hiking up to the pool.
