10 Things You Must Do In Austin

Austin Texas I've just returned from Austin, Texas and I've decided to share my newly created list of 10 things you must do in Austin. Keep in mind that this list is from an outsider's point of view, as I'm sure the locals would suggest different things that I've never heard of. So based upon my experiences...here it goes, in no particular order:

1. Get a massage and then buy a delicious meal from the endless variety of prepared food counters at Whole Foods Market, 525 N. Lamar Blvd.

2. Shop for vintage-inspired styles and costumes amongst the incredible selection at Lucy In Disguise With Diamonds, 1506 S. Congress Ave.

3. Eat the popular enchiladas de mole and hang out at the bar for happy hour with the locals at Manuel's, 310 Congress Ave.

4. Absorb Texas history for a few hours at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, 1800 N. Congress Ave.

5. Watch a band play at a club on 6th Street or wander around the more upscale bars and clubs of the Warehouse District.

6. Devour an enormous omelette at Austin Java, 301 W. 2nd St.

7. Browse the fantastic selection of inexpensive apparel, footwear, and accessories at Goodie Two Shoes, 1111 S. Congress Ave.

8. Indulge in peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream and then dance the two step at The Broken Spoke, 3201 S. Lamar Blvd.

9. Support Austin's local artists and fashion designers by purchasing their creations from Parts and Labour, 1604 S. Congress Ave.

10. Take a relaxing boat cruise along Lake Lady Bird (aka Town Lake) and watch the bats take flight from the Congress Ave. bridge just before sunset.
