I’ve wanted to visit Austin, Texas for years. I’d heard what a great town it is, about the amazing music scene, and the friendly, laid-back vibe.
Much to my pleasure, all those things are true and more. It’s literally one of the funnest, friendliest, and most chill cities I’ve ever had the good fortune to visit.
I spent a month there in the spring of 2011. I highly recommend the spring as a good time to visit. If you’re like me, heat is not your friend, especially when combined with high humidity. The weather when I was there was outstanding, if not next to perfect.
I think it rained a little one or two days. Otherwise, it was blue skies with a few fluffy clouds and low seventies temps. Just my speed.
I was also there during SXSW. Although I didn’t buy a pass to this epic event, there was so much music and other stuff going on for free, I hardly missed it.
I shot all these with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. It was popular at the time, although I can’t say I’ve used it since. Enjoy.
