I love visiting places that I grew up in, as a tourist. You see things with fresh eyes and it amazes me all the different things you can do that you never did when you lived there! Austin has become one of the most popular American destinations for many reasons and when you visit you understand why it’s so desirable, especially to live in. Any outdoor activity you could want, great cultural museums, live music at any time of the day, appreciation for food, sports and of course, the friendly people!
Another free flight courtesy of the JetBlue American Express card. Can’t beat the direct flight from Fort Lauderdale to Austin in just under three hours.
Austin is the perfect place to stay in an AirBnB. I’m familiar with the city and the areas where we wanted to go. Found a great place in South Congress where we could walk pretty much anywhere, including over the bridge to Downtown.
