What to do for fun in Austin
To quote the Austin visitor’s guide, “It’s hip and trendy, yet in a vintage sort of way. It’s high-tech and laid-back. It’s politically charged and culturally rich. It’s eclectic by nature and creative by design. Most of all, it’s a place where people like to have a good time.”. We’ve included links to the visitor’s center, as well as some restaurant links and music attractions. Most music venues do not accept reservations, but some, for special attractions, will pre-sell tickets. Your best bet is to take some time, look at some of the places we’ve listed online, and plan ahead.
