Austin questions and answers
I will be traveling to Texas in
the near future with my son who is a music lover, and he
interested in seeing some live music while in Austin. Does Austin
good music scene?
Austin is actually famous for
its music scene. On any given Friday night, your son can go out to
one of more than 100 venues to see great live music. Some
small venues include the Red Eyed
Fly, if he's into local rock
and punk, and the Saxon Pub. If any larger musical act is in town,
can be sure to catch them at Stubb's BBQ or the Backyard/Live
I'm planning on coming to
Austin in the summer. How hot does it actually get down
Well, you're definitely coming
the hottest time of the year. The average highs in July and August
are in the mid-90s. It can even hit 100 occasionally.
The nights are a bit more comfortable with
the lows around

was thinking about going to Austin's South by Southwest festival in March.
tell me a bit about it?
South by Southwest is an annual
festival in Texas where many bands flock to try to get a record
deal. For five days in March, these bands play all over Austin
while many fans, music lovers,
and talent scouts enjoy the music.
There are three options as far as paying for admittance into
the festival, the cheapest being a $115 wrist band. However,
the customers who purchased a
Platinum Badge or a Music Badge,
which are more VIP, get into the packed clubs first. There
are always many, many people there, so be sure to get there early and
have your night planned.
You surely will not have to go far
for great music in SXSW, because many performers play right
the street. I can say with experience that you will have an amazing
time at this festival.
Me and my buddies are coming to
Austin to drink and have a good time. Where are
You certainly won't go thirsty
in Austin. Austin has more bars per capita than any other in the
US. You got Club DeVille, which has a huge outdoor patio and a
60s interior. There's the Dog
and Duck pub, which is an
English style pub with a nice outdoor patio, to name two. Have fun
in Austin, it's a fun town!
I'm renting a car from Austin.
Are there any good day trips I can take from
Yes, you can head into Hill
Country and spend a day in San Antonio, which is about an hour's
drive away on I-35. You'll pass by peaceful little towns,
cactus-speckled cattle ranches, gently
rolling hills and valleys,
and clear running rivers.
