I stayed at an amazing B&B - gateway guesthouse www.gatewayguest.com
The bed was one of the top beds I have ever slept on (in the studio suite) The two lovely ladies that own it are from the Midwest (hugs) and are amazing cooks (bess was on Food network in Minny) They turned this place into a cozy haven of relaxation - a beautiful pool, hot tub and great guest rooms.
I went to the broken spoke to do some two stepping and to listen to the best honky tonk music- hats and boots on I got my dance on! www.brokenspokeaustintx.com
I went to Uchi for dinner for some amazing sushi and raw delights. I had a great albarino with dinner.
The next day I walked all around Congress street and went into the many crazy shops, found my cowboy boots FINALLY, ate off the food trucks, had a margarita and then off to a state park right outta town to relax and play in the water.
That night out to Congress for dinner and then to see the chaotic 6th street (kind of like new orleans with bourban st) www.congressaustin.com
I really liked Austin and its vibe. Its cool city, retro and vintage city and honkey tonk cowboy all in one city.
