I've lived in Austin for 15 years and absolutely love it! I enjoy the eclectic mix of people, the live music venues, local restaurants and the hike and bike trail at Town Lake. I enjoy being able to walk to coffee and gelato at Teo's, a margarita and tex mex on the patio at Santa Rita, and the best breakfast tacos in Austin at Taco Shack. I am also within walking distance of Central Market where they have live music on the deck Friday-Sunday evening.I love to cook and have enjoyed cooking classes with some great chefs at Central Market. Central Market is Texas' version of Whole Foods. I'm also a dog lover and Austin is very dog friendly. I will be in town and available to answer any questions during your stay.
