Visiting Texas: Fun Things To Do On a Road Trip to Austin

Austin, Texas is the capital of Texas and home of The Texas Longhorns. If you've been to Austin within the last 10-15 years you've probably come across the "Keep Austin Weird" slogan, meant to encourage buying locally.

Like most major cities in the US, food trucks are all the craze in Austin, Tx so be sure to stop by a few while you're in town.Whether you decided to stroll Sixth Street, Rainey Street, or Congress, you'll find something fun to do and somewhere to eat. Below are a few of my favorite places to visit when I'm in the Austin area.

1) The Capital - Tour the capital of Texas.

2) HOPE Outdoor Gallery - Community park providing space for colorful murals with inspirational messaging.

3) Round Rock Donuts - Home of the giant donuts.

4) Texas State Cemetery - Resting place of Stephen F. Austin and many other Texas leaders.

5) SXSW Music Festival - The South by Southwest Film & Music Festival is held every March in Austin, TX.

6) Bee Cave - A cool little town just a few minutes outside of Austin. Enjoy dining, shopping and entertainment.

Ps. If you have time, stop to admire the wildflowers; Indian Paintbrushes and Bluebonnets (the Texas state flower) are usually very beautiful in the spring. Also if you have time, make a stop in Brenham, Tx and take a tour of the BlueBell ice cream factory. And...stopping at a Buc-ee's Travel Center along the way is a Texas road trip must. What are some of your favorite places in and around Austin?
