First off, have you been to Austin? If not, why the heck not?
There are amazing food carts of all ethnicities, live music EVERYWHERE and one particularly beautiful house on Riverside to rent through Homeaway! My husband and I recently won a once in a lifetime trip from Homeaway and can not gush enough about Austin and the house we were set up in.
We arrived on a balmy 94 degree day and headed towards our humble three story abode overlooking downtown Austin. And by humble, I mean sleek, well equipped, humongous, inviting stunning house! Thank goodness the AC was on, we Northwesterners are not accustomed to that heat and humidity. Not knowing where to start the exploration we headed out and started hitting up the food trucks! Gourdough's, ChiLantro, Hey! You gonna Eat or What?, Wholly Cow Burger, Stubb's and ohhhh so many more delectable spots!! We went on a culinary extravaganza during our trip.
The highlight of our trip was meeting Al Green at Austin City Limits and watching him sing with his 14 piece band! We cannot thank Homeaway for their tremendous generosity and hospitality. They picked a great house and showed us a great time.
PS. We highly recommend the 25 minute drive to Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood - Hands down the best we ever had!
