Live Music Captial
Austin has more live music and musicians per capita than almost anywhere else, from blues to two-step to conjunto, and more than a few Brazilian-music bands.
Vibrant Food Scene
Austin’s restaurant and food-truck scene boasts fabulous offerings, from barbecue to breakfast tacos, ceviche to banh-mi, and more.
Austin’s Congress Avenue Bridge, which runs north-south across a dammed portion of the Colorado River known as Lady Bird Lake, is home to the largest urban bat colony in North America.
