15. Go get 6th St. over with
If Austin has a reputation as both the Live Music Capital of the World and a hard drinking party town (both of which are 100% true, by the way), it’s mostly due to the antics that take place on 6th St. downtown nearly every night. Spend an evening there and on some of the surrounding streets (such as Red River or over in the Warehouse District). You’ll have fun, maybe drink a little too much, meet some interesting people and then probably have no desire to ever go again.
