Sunday Herald Sun - Escape - - WHAT’S YOUR BUDGET AUSTIN -

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.
