Where to go?

by DaveFic

My wife and I will be in Austin Dec. 2-5 and are looking for a good place to hear some classic rock or blues, especially on Saturday night. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Everyone of us wants to have the same feeling when we are on an extended stay on a tour.One could not imagine that there are so beautiful places all around.Short holidays have their own charm. I love to span my holiday breaks throughout the year, so that When I need a quick break from routine.

There are plenty of live music bars along 4th street and 6th street - I'd recommend just walking around until you hear something you like, and then go in. That's what we did and we discovered a great blues band!

Also, look for a copy of the Chronicle - it will give you a run down of who's performing everywhere, and it has restaurant reviews as well. Pretty good newspaper to pick up for a weekend, and it's free. They'll probably have one in your hotel.

4th and 6th Streets are pretty good. I miss them! You might want to look in to Stubb's, which is closer to 8th Street, I think, but a really great music venue.

Enjoy!

That really seems time for romance along music bars! means our time to relax doing what we like and resting our mind and body.

The Continental Club is my number one pick. Very Austin and old school. 6th Street tends to be touristy and very busy on the weekend (like Bourbon Street in New Orleans) but you can get cheap drinks at most of the bars. Pick up an Austin Chronicle and look in the music section. There tends to be better classic rock and blues at Antone's, Austin Music Hall and Momo's or you can go off the beaten track to places like Ginny's Little Longhorn or T.C.'s Lounge. Also, you can get free tickets to Austin City Limits here: http://www.austincitylimits.org/

Travel Tips for Austin

David Crockett, of Alamo Fame

by VeronicaG

David Crockett has gained hero status for his participation in the historic Battle of the Alamo. Legend says that he was one of the last victims of the Alamo massacre led by Mexican General Santa Anna. However, before his demise he was already popular due to his storytelling abilities.

David Crockett* (1786-1836) was born in what is now Northeast Tennessee. He worked for a cattle driver at age 12, but ran away at age 13. He had no formal education.

He and his wife, Elizabeth, raised a family and David eventually became active in politics. His prowess as a bear hunter and humorous oration skills brought him many admirers.

He served as a community Magistrate, was elected to the State Legislature and to the United States Congress. Due to the politics of the time, he grew weary of public service and moved to Texas in the Fall of 1835. Sadly, only a month later, he died at the Alamo.

A recently discovered journal purportedly kept by one of Santa Anna's aides claims that Crockett was executed along with a handful of survivors at the end of the battle. This refutes the legend that he was killed during the actual battle itself.

*This portrait of David Crockett hangs in the Texas Capitol.

Watch out for the two fingered wave!

University of Texas at Austin cheerleader Harley Clark knew what he was going to teach football fans at a 1955 pep rally was going to catch on faster than poodle skirts and leather jackets. It had to. After all, the Texas A&M Aggies' "Gig 'em" gesture had been around for years.

Clark sold the student body on the symbolic approximation of the horns of Longhorn mascot Bevo and, thus, began the "Hook 'em Horns" hand signal. The salute quickly took its place beside the university traditions of singing The Eyes of Texas and lighting the Tower orange.

Fellow student Henry Pitts, who had come up with the Longhorn sign during an inspired game of shadow casting, had shown Clark the sign three days before the Texas Christian University game.

Bats under the Bridge

Bats under the Congress Bridge

Austin's Town Lake, Austin, Texas

http://www.austincityguide.com/content/congress-bridge-bats-austin.asp

Home of the famous and largest bat colony bridge located in the heart of Austin Texas. The Congress Avenue Bridge spans Town Lake in downtown Austin and is home to the largest urban bat colony in North America. The colony is estimated at 1.5 million Mexican free-tail bats. Every night beginning in mid-March to roughly November, the bats emerge from under the bridge at dusk to blanket the sky as they head out to forage for food. This is one of Austin's as well as Texas' most spectacular tourist attractions. The best time to view them are during the hot dry August nights when columns of bats emerge. When I visited 4/27/07 is was more like a swarm of mosquitos (bats) around a bloody arm (the bridge). 4 stars out of 5.

Camp it!

by butterfly_girl

For an easy vacation only 30 miles west of Austin, head over to Pace Bend Park on Lake Travis. This is a popular campground and wildlife reserve. The park has miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking and 9 miles of shoreline for swimming and relaxing. It is off Ranch Road 2322

World Famous 6th Street

by kd_baby about 6th Street

Austin and its self-proclaimed "Live Music Capital of the World" promote most of this nightlife along 6th Street. It's also full of bars, pubs, and nightclubs.

IMHO 6th Street isn't the place to be anymore. It appears most of the good nightlife activity is now moving to 4th St. and 5th St. Being the casual town that it is, you pretty much wear anything...business casual, sports clothes, skimpy, etc.
