A Few Of My Favorite Places – Austin, TX

As you may remember, I have a series on Nines to 5 called “A Few Of My Favorite Things”, where I overview products, places, or processes that I really love. I’m going to start a sub-series of that called “A Few Of My Favorite Places”, and this is the first edition! You all know I LOVE to travel and sneak in some travel posts from time to time around here. I wanted to be able to share with you guys some of my adventures and places that I really recommend going. First up: Austin. Austin is one of my, if not my ultimate, favorite cities in the US. My sister and her family live there, so we’re lucky enough to go there a few times a year. From the food, the music, the people, and the weather, you just can’t go wrong. I’ve been to Austin more times than I can count and we always find new things to do every time I go. Below I’ll be sharing some photos of my favorite things to do in the city and links to the places (if available).
