Mini Vacation Next Month: Austin, Texas.

Next month my hubby will be traveling to Austin, Texas to visit with co-workers at the corporate building since he works from home now. I have never been to Texas, and have decided to take this opportunity to tag along with him. We will only be going from Monday-Thursday. It’s a short vacation, but I will be taking time off from work, and Little Miss will be staying with the grand-parents, so it’s a lot to juggle and manage in order for us to even go. Since the Hubby will be working during the days, I will be left to do as I please during the day. As sad as it is, I have never walked around a city alone, especially one that I have never been to before. This will be my first experience navigating around alone. I usually just let the hubby tell me where to go or which train to jump on. I am nervous, yet also excited. I don’t want to plan the whole thing, because you never know what will happen. But I would like some ideas in my back pocket, so I have some direction.

Here are a few things that look worth checking out:

  • The Blanton Museum of Art
  • Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum
  • Cathedral of Junk
  • Mayfiled Park Cottage and Gardens

As far as food goes; I want really good quality BB-Q and Mexican, but I have no idea where to start.

So I am looking for help and advice on what I should do/see/eat while I am in Austin. I know that I am staying close to the University of Austin, so if you have any recommendations for anything that is worth checking out in close proxsimity, please help me out.

Thank you!
