Live Music Capital of the World

My entire life, I grew up in Central Texas. However, it wouldn't be until 2011 that my now-husband and I would move to the Live Music Capital of the World. Yep, it's true... Austin, TX is a pretty cool place. And in attempts (with good intentions) to get all of my blog friends to come visit me in Texas, I have complied a few things that are awesome about this city.

My favorite taco will forever be the green chili pork taco with avocado sauce on top. If you pair that with some of their Mexican rice, you will be in heaven. Lemme tell you. What's even cooler is that this place is an Austin original!

Although my lucky-dog-of-a-husband had eaten here prior, he only recently took me for brunch one morning. And I am forever changed. It was literally the best foods that I had ever put in my mouth. Plus, the atmosphere is simply perfect. It's totally up my alley.

What's better than learning a little bit o' history about Texas?

Husband and I have gone to countless concerts here, and we always have the best time! In fact, my most recent trip there was when I met Brett Eldredge. 

Another Austin original, this ice cream joint is where it's at! I am not sure why I enjoy it so much, but it's super creamy and just delish. I usually stick with the tried and true Chocolate.

I would be lying if I said that I've been to Hamilton Pool... but I want to! And that's gotta count for something. It's pretty neat that this gem sits in central Texas. I have heard great things about it, and since it's only a quick car ride away, I vote that I go very soon.

So have y'all been to any of these joints? What did you think about them?

  2. When we found out we were being transferred to Texas, I absolutely BEGGED my husband to let us live in Austin. I adore Austin!! Alas, his company wasn't on board and we got stuck in Dallas... But if we ever get the chance to pick what city we live in, we're coming straight for Austin!

  11. Hey lovie! your blog is kicking butt lately and i always look forward to your updates. I hope you are having a great week! PS Hamilton pool is cool and all but the bacteria levels are almost always too high to swim in, so its more of a short hike and pictures type place. I love the blue hole or jacobs well in wimberly for actual swimming.
    Stay fly!!! Miss you!!
