Ah, it's roadbikeROB again.
Seriously, we get it. You hate Austin. I almost imagine you sitting at home searching for "Austin" on any of the thread titles just so you can give your negative opinion.
But I digress...
What are your interests? I assume sicne you're on RJ that you're more athletically inclined?
If so, this city is awesome. There's the Town Lake hike and bike trail that has many walkers and joggers in downtown. Go in the evening, and there'll be eye candy galore.
The Greenbelt surrounding the city is another must see. Just hike through and visit the falls. Hopefully, we'll have a few good rains by then. If so, the water should be flowing nicely. Again, another spot to take a few beers and get a tan while being in nature.
Zilker park, etc..
Food is awesome. It's not pretentious by any means. Jeans, t shirt, flip flops...you're good to go.
If you're going to be here on a weekend, go to Hula Hut for dinner on Friday or Saturday. I swear, I think Hula Hut has the hottest people per capita in Austin.
