ROCK ‘N’ ROLL AND WE LIKE IT
One of the fastestgrowing cities in the US, Austin is making plenty of room for guests, too, with more than 3000 new hotel rooms expected by 2019. The Texan city is known as the live music capital of the world but Expedia travel expert Lisa Perkovic says it rocks in more ways than one.
“From the well-known art and music scene, trendy boutiques and bars, to arguably some of the best food in the country, this former sleepy city has turned itself into a thriving metropolis.
“It’s also easier for Aussies to get to Houston thanks to flights going direct from Sydney or Melbourne. Once you arrive, hop in a hire-car for an easy three-hour drive to Austin to get you started on your bootscooting adventure.”
All of Austin is a stage so whether you’re visiting for South by Southwest (SXSW), scratching your jazz itch in the Elephant Room, or bar-hopping along Rainey Street, the creative current of the city is palpable.
