We visited Austin, Texas about three weeks into our two-month driving trip to Florida. As Austin was, until this visit, the only major city in Texas which I had never been in, I was especially interested in spending some time there. We thoroughly enjoyed Austin.
We ate in a number of restaurants including Austin’s famous trailer restaurants — yep, food served from travel trailers. And we enjoyed discovering Austin’s music scene as well. We went to two renowned music venues — The Elephant Room and The Continental Club. Man, those folks love to dance!
Also, we toured the botanical garden and visited the Texas State Capital. As you’d expect, the folks in Texas built their capitol dome fourteen feet higher than the dome in our nation’s capitol.
While visiting the city, we camped in the nearby, and most convenient, Kinney Falls State Park. That location worked out well.
