25 of My Favorite Places in Austin

As an original Austinite, I’ve seen restaurants and retail come and go. I’ve seen the traffic and the growth occur at a rapid pace. But Austin still offers a great food scene and cultural experiences.

I grew up here so Congress Avenue really stopped at Hill’s Café. After that, there was nothing. The Domain didn’t exist and neither did Cedar Park.

My, how time changes things. My list of favorites includes some of the old and some of the new and mostly food.

If you’re visiting Austin, you can’t go wrong with downtown, 2nd Street District, the Eastside or West 6th. There is so much the Austin area has to offer, don’t miss out! Day 17 #Write31days
