One of Texas’ coolest cities, Austin is hot, hot, hot! There is no shortage of great boutique digs to match your budget and travel style. Hotels can be found in the walkable city center. Alternatively, if you have a rental car at your disposal, treat yourself to a setting in the arms of nature further outside the city along the lakes. Whichever way you decide to go, Austin definitely will not disappoint.
A food truck is not simply a food truck in Austin, where there are over one thousand to be found. You can taste certain classic Texan dishes like BBQ and Tex-Mex, but you could also find really unique trucks whipping up inventive and delicious foods. Remember, many food trucks are on a cash only basis, so bring a full wallet to not miss out on any great eats. You can track down individual food trucks or visit a food truck court like The Picnic or Lone Star Court, where several trucks are set up and have a central dining area.
Meat-lovers would want to stop by La Barbeque for the perfect Texas brisket. The Best Wurst is ideal for sausage lovers as they prepare grilled sausage sandwiches of all varieties. Of course, Tex-Mex can be found in Austin as well. Vera Cruz All Natural is home to handmade tortillas stuffed with all natural ingredients, while El Primo Taco Truck will get your early morning taco cravings satisfied with their breakfast offerings.
In case you require a specialty diet, Austin will pleasantly surprise you again. Vegan vendors like Arlo's are completely animal product free. To top it all off, indulge in tasty dessert. You can get handheld cupcake goodness in a variety of rotating flavors from Hey Cupcake! or pop into Candy Cart, Austin’s first mobile candy store to satisfy your sweet tooth. Gourdough’s is home to delicious doughnuts with unique toppings like grilled bananas and so much more.
