15 Obligatory Experiences for Austin Newcomers

Whether you’ve just moved here or simply visiting for a while, you probably already know that there’s no shortage of things to do here in Austin. As a public service, we’d like to offer fifteen suggestions to get you out of your home or hotel room and see what our city has to offer. Many of these suggestions are certainly no secret – hell, you might have done some of these already. Consider it sort of a checklist; an mini-Austin Bucket List, but without the morbid undertones.

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.
