That’s #SoAustin

Have you ever seen anything that made you yelp, “That’s SO Austin!” Well, we sure have, which is why we launched a Facebook page for locals and tourists (or just admirers) called That’s #SoAustin. Any time we see stuff unique to our city, or at least highly descriptive of the people here and our way of life, this is where we share it.

Help out by tagging your stuff #SoAustin on Facebook and Instagram! It’ll probably end up right here, provided it’s cool and fun, but not creepy (well, not *too* creepy, anyway).

Meanwhile, enjoy the latest posts down below and make sure to “Like” That’s #SoAustin with the button below. And if you’re really feelin’ these here ATX vibes, hop over to the Facebook page, tap on the “Like” button, then select two of the options it gives ya: “See first” in your newsfeed, and “on” for notifications. Do that an’ you are guaranteed to never miss out on any of the fun!

Oh, and if you like this, you may also enjoy the official Austin.com Facebook account. Stop by and say hi!


Them #SoAustin feels when your Dallas friends say you should visit. Although truthfully, as a southie, I feel the same way about WilCo and, uh, pretty much everything north of 51st Street. 😂🤣

North Austin is okay I guess, if you know the happy hours ➤https://austin.com/10-north-austin-happy-hours/
