Every city has its quirks and interesting stops you can take, but no city is quite as interesting as Austin. If you’re in town and want to make the most out of your time here, these are the top ways to get the most out of a weekend in Austin!
Check Out What Makes Austin Weird
“Keep Austin Weird” is a phrase you’ll see on bumper stickers, license plates, and even billboards while you’re in town, but what does it mean? Mostly it just means that it’s important to keep the city fun and exciting and don’t let it get bogged down in boring business.
One of the most interesting attractions is the Cathedral of Junk! This strange and fun shelter is made out of used and recycled pieces that have already lived a full life as someone else’s possession. Visiting the can open your eyes to what makes Austin so fun and exciting.
Find Paradise on Lake Travis
Lake Travis is one of the best places to stop if you’re dying for a fun and exciting time away from the stress of everyday life. This perfect Oasis is a great space to enjoy beautiful water views, party and drink, or take it slow and meditate in nature. Lake Travis isn’t somewhere to swim or play in the water, but you’ll love getting to enjoy the beautiful scenery while you’re there.
Enjoy West 6th Street Once the Sun Sets.
