One of the next city guides we would like to launch as part of our fight against overtourism is Austin, the capital of Texas!
Tourism in Austin is certainly a flourishing industry (albeit not as much in recent times, due to the pandemic), but we believe that most tourists do not get to know Austin as well as they should or deserve to. That is why we need help from you, Austin loving locals!
Of course, there is plenty to love about Austin, whether as a tourist or local. People visit it for the great music festivals, or to see the beautiful highlights, such as the Texas State Capitol, the Lady Bird Lake, Mount Bonnell, and the Barton Springs Pool.
But what is it like to experience Austin like a local? Where can you get the best coffee and what’s the best food truck around? Where do locals relax or celebrate? This is what we and many travelers want to know!
Are you an Austin loving local?
We aim to show visitors (and locals!) the real culture of Austin beyond the tourist highlights. We are looking for locals who’d like to share their passion and spread the word about Austin by blogging about their favorite spots. Browse around our current 80+ city blogs and learn more about our amazing community & vision!
