1. There’s live music everywhere, every single day
Austin’s not hailed the ‘Live Music Capital of the World’ for nothing. Here, you’ll feel live vibrations everywhere, from the streets to the park to the bars. First-timers must add two of Austin’s legends on their agenda: The Continental Club on South Congress and downtown’s home of blues, Antone’s. Zilker Park also becomes a stage during festival season, when Austin City Limits Music Festival and Blues on the Green land. Meanwhile, restaurant Geraldine’s and fun time nightclub Cheer Up Charlie’s strum nightly sounds to dine or get your groove on to.
