A Local's List: The Best Places to Go in Austin for SXSW

Heading to Austin, Texas for South by Southwest?  A local from Austin compiled a 'best places' list.

It also happens to be one of the most dog-friendly cities in the country, with tons of hiking trails and public parks with off-leash privileges for well-behaved pups. As the home to the Whole Foods flagship, Austin also has an eco-centric, green-friendly vitality that is, in many ways, leading the country into a more sustainable mindset. After all, the motto of the city is to support local, and, perhaps more importantly, to “keep Austin weird.”
