The capital city of Texas, Austin, has a saying: “Keep Austin Weird.” That’s because when you arrive this city in the middle of Texas, you feel like you’re in a different state. Sure, you’ll see more cowboy boots, barbeque and Longhorns here than most other places in the U.S. But Austin prides itself on being different than the rest of Texas. You’ll find lots of liberals, live music, even more food trucks, and hipsters aplenty in this town. Check out our interview with local, Katie, for more reasons to love Austin, and how to see it all on your trip to this fun and unique city.
