Things to see and do in Austin
Welcome to Austin, Texas! We consistently rank #1 (or nearly there) on lists of the country’s top cities to visit and live. We’re also a “media hotbed,” as big publishers have flocked to our fair city in recent years. And as you may know, we’re the Live Music Capital of the World. But are you aware that we’re also home to the world’s largest urban bat colony?
We realize you’ll have plenty to occupy your time with ISOJ panels, workshops and receptions, but we’ve compiled some sites and guides below just in case you have time to take in the town. Feel free to ask any of the organizers for advice and recommendations!
Y’all have fun now!
Here’s a quick and easy link from Eater if you’re just looking for a good breakfast taco.
