Come for the Music, Stay for the BBQ, Nature Trails, & Family-Friendly Attractions

The capital city of Texas, Austin is known by many names, primarily as “The Live Music Capital of the World”. Residents and visitors can find music anywhere, from restaurants and bars to grocery stores and the airport. Of course, it’s also home to PBS’ TV concert series, Austin City Limits, hosted at The Moody Theater downtown, as well as festivals like Austin City Limits Festival and South by Southwest each year. Beyond music, the city’s many parks, Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs, and nearby state parks seated in the Texas Hill Country make the surrounding area an outdoor lover’s dream. And of course, when you get hungry, there’s nothing like real Texas BBQ, authentic Mexican tacos, and Tex-Mex with a Shiner lager in hand. See why there are so many transplants living in this Central-South Texas city.
