Just touting Austin as the best city in America for golf would only be part of the story. Add Live Music Capital of the World® and a vast array of other entertainment options... all in one small city, and you have the "ultimate 19th hole."
Live Music Capital of the World®
Today, our city hosts nearly 200 venues and is home to thousands of musicians. Which means you can catch a show any day of the week, at almost any time. From tiny clubs along Sixth Street to 351-acre Zilker Park with its 60,000 fan capacity, Austin’s live music venues are anything but ordinary. Hear some music.
When you're in Austin, we invite you to dig in. Because whatever your palate is craving, we have it. The best barbeque. The coldest margaritas. Life-altering queso. 24-hour dives. Fare for foodies to write home about.
Leave some room for one-of-a-kind shopping finds, because Austin has an eclectic array of shops and boutiques. Head to South Congress, or SoCo, for unique and vintage treasures from apparel to jewelry, artwork and more. For 700,000 square feet of designer shops, try Austin's newest shopping destination, the Domain.
See the stores.
A big part of Austin's culture? The great outdoors. With Hill Country vistas outside the city and Lady Bird Lake in the center of town, we come out to play as often as possible. And we think you will, too. Austin has miles of hike and bike trails, more than 200 parks and around 300 days of sunshine each year. Get outside.
Our artistic side is alive and well in Austin. In fact, it surrounds us. We are a creative community filled with designers, painters, sculptors, dancers, filmmakers, musicians... artists of all kinds. Start exploring.
Whether at the State Capitol or the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, Texas’s storied past is a great part of any Austin visit. A stroll around the Capitol area reveals the historic architecture of the Capitol Visitors Center and the grand façade of the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building. Begin the tour.
