Bat City With Less Bats

Austin is the 11th most populated city in the USA, and about 32 percent of people living there can speak a language other than English. You can end up hearing Hindi, Mandarin/Cantonese, or Spanish as some of the more common ones. And it is also home to many Fortune 500 companies such as Google, Whole Foods Market, Apple, Facebook, and 3M giving it the nickname “Silicon Hills”.

Austin’s Secret Sauce

  • Visit the Texas Capitol where their building is 22 feet taller than the Capitol Building in Washington DC.
  • If you want to watch the bats flying in the city of bats then head on to the Congress Avenue Bridge at dusk. 
  • Holly is a fun alternate nightlife destination with plenty of great food trucks, coffee shops, and restaurants.
  • Catching a movie and dinner at the same time is easily done at Alamo Drafthouse.
