Headed to the Live Music Capital of the World for a long weekend? We’re here to help you squeeze some of Austin’s very best into a few days.
Spend your morning on the east side for breakfast at Counter Café or strolling South Congress with a coffee and pastry from Jo’s. Pop in to Heritage Boot, Parts & Labour, Big Top Candy Shop and all spots in between. Fresh air and stunning views beckon from the trail around Lady Bird Lake. Treat the kids to an afternoon at the Thinkery or the Austin Zoo.
For lunch, nothing but a juicy two-fisted burger from Hopdoddy Burger Bar or a slice from Home Slice will do. Or take your pick from more than 2,000 food trucks parked around the city. Take the crew to Peter Pan Mini-Golf and practice your putting skills. Then get some culture time in at the Bullock Texas State History Museum or the Texas State Capitol.
Wind down with dinner at Contigo and cupcakes at Sugar Mama's Bakeshop. Then walk any of Austin's popular entertainment districts, and see which live music venues, bars and shops pull you in.
