Travel: Austin, Texas

Austin Texas

Over the 4th of July weekend I took a trip out to Austin, Texas for the first time. We spent most of our time doing outdoor activities and of course, eating. The vibe of the city is really laid back and people are ridiculously nice. I guess coming from New York, I didn’t find the city to be that “weird” except for all the angled parking, that was kind of strange. Overall, we had a great time and hope to come back again sometime.

If you like outdoor things to do, Austin has no shortage of that.

Austin is the capital of food trucks and their literally everywhere you go. Here’s some photos just from 2 of the many ones we ate at.

  1. Hamilton Pool and Blue Hole look awesome–I hadn’t heard of either! Thanks for putting them on my radar. And those donuts? Definitely a few good reasons to visit Austin soon.

    • Thanks for checking out my blog. Those two places were both really nice and fun, I would highly recommend it if you visit Austin. Try going early though because once they feel it’s crowded then theres a line to get in. I wish I ate at more food trucks, they have lots of interesting food there.

      Your Long Beach Island trip looked really awesome too!
