The secret is out. Everyone who visits Austin these days leaves with something great to say. They can't stop talking about the legendary live music, burgeoning restaurant scene and distinctly unique culture.
Located in the heart of Texas, Austin is home to more than 250 music venues and a vibrant arts scene. Home to a wonderful ballet, world-class museums, one of a kind shopping and beautiful outdoor spaces there is truly something for everyone.
As Austin's official slogan is The Live Music Capital of the World, the city has a vibrant live music scene with more music venues per capita than any other U.S. city. Austin's music revolves around the many nightclubs on 6th Street and an annual film/music/interactive festival known as South by Southwest (SXSW). The concentration of restaurants, bars, and music venues in the city's downtown core is a major contributor to Austin's live music scene, as the zip code encompassing the downtown entertainment district hosts the best night life as well.
Austin has also adopted "Silicon Hills" as a nickname in the 1990s due to a rapid influx of technology and development companies. Home of such influential festivals such as “South by Southwest” it’s been ranked the 2nd best city to live in. In recent years, some Austinites have also adopted the unofficial slogan "Keep Austin Weird", which refers to the desire to protect small, unique, and local businesses from being overrun by large corporations.
So come join us for an exciting week in one of the most vibrant, eclectic cities in the country. With plenty of restaurants, outdoor cafes, clubs and bars you couldn’t ask for a better experience!
