Austin Texas Fun
Austin Texas fun. A weekend spent in Austin for football, food, and friends!
My husband and I travel to Texas a few times a year for University of Texas football games (hubby is an alumni). As I am writing this, I am looking at my suitcase because I need to pack for our trip to Dallas (UT vs OU). This is my second time in Austin and it was ALMOST as fun as last time (we got engaged in Austin <3). This time, the trip had a few different activities that I wanted to share with you!
Where we stayed
We stayed in an Airbnb with a group of friends. I have mixed feelings about Airbnb. Sometimes you can stay in really cool places but I like the service provided in hotels. I think airbnb is good for a group of people but if its a smaller situation than hotels are the way to go.
Our Airbnb was a house in Austin and walking distance to a local coffee shop. The coffee scene in Austin is kind of a big deal. I love that neighborhoods have unique coffee shops at the end of their streets. If I lived in Austin, this would be a problem and probably become an addiction! lol. We have “local” coffee shops in Miami that aren’t major chains but they are never in a residential neighborhood, always somewhere convenient for business like a mall or major highway.
University of Texas football & Game day attire
I always look for cute outfits in school colors for football games. I’m not really a “t-shirt fan”. I think it depends on the school you go to, but in Texas a lot of girls dress up for the game. I went to school at Indiana (and it starts to get cold during football season) so a lot of people would wear jersey’s with jackets, jeans and sweaters adorned with the school logo, or my usual go-to was jeans with a plaid shirt in the schools colors. Every school has its own personality and kind of dictates football attire.
The romper I wore will be a great transitional piece for Fall. The burnt orange color has all the Fall feels. I’m in love with my booties because they are so comfortable and I wear them all of the time!
Austin Texas Food
Torchy’s Tacos: The queso is everything you want in life. It’s green chile queso and its one of the best, if not the best, queso that I have tried. There tacos are really good too! This place is a MUST GO!
Ramen Tatsu-ya: We had to wait in a line out the door to get into this place! It’s pretty famous in Austin. Personally, I’m not into Ramen but everyone I was with raved about this place. I got the vegetarian ramen and added a bomb to it. The ramen was pretty good but because I’m not a big ramen fan I don’t think I am giving this place the justice it deserves.
My husband says “it was so good I had to order extra portions of noodles to savor every last drop of the pork broth.” There you have it, folks.
Salt Lick: We stopped by the Salt Lick in the airport to get breakfast on our way home. I got the potato, egg, and cheese tacos and oh my goodness-so simple yet so delicious. I’m telling you tex-mex food might be the greatest thing on earth.
