Enjoying downtown can be a great time, especially historic 6th Street on a weekend!

Make sure you Grab a Slice of Pizza at Roppolo’s or grab an awesome gyro from the food stands, but be quick they move often! It doesn’t always have to be weekend fun either to have fun downtown, on Wednesday nights the Flamingo Cantina is a Great place to enjoy Reggae Vibes and an open patio with friends! Be sure to check it out on your next visit to Austin!

While there is no shortage of nightlife in Austin, I’m often asked what activities there are to do during the day. One suggestion is to search for the street art that’s teeming around the city. While I could tell you where to find Austin’s Instagram famous murals, it’s more fun to randomly stumble upon these treasures. You just might discover a new favorite. Here are some streets to explore: 1st, 6th, South Congress, Lamar, and The Drag (on Guadalupe). Of course, the one place you must visit is the Hope Outdoor Gallery. Bring a can of spray paint with you as these cement walls invite you to embrace your inner graffiti artist. Be sure to visit soon, because the graffiti park is set to move to a new location later in 2019.
