Austin Texas is known for its diverse and adventurous food offerings. Whether you seek the comfort of a really good taco truck, or something more substantial like some real Chicken Fried Steak or slow-smoked barbecue, you are sure to find it here! While visiting the International Expo of Agates 2019, Nature's Treasures invites you to sample the local cuisine--ask for extra slaw, you won't be sorry!
Speaking of food trucks, you may have noticed that Austin has a lot of them...that's because they are really, really good! Don't be afraid to sample the little airstream trailers slinging burgers, you'll find a hidden treasure for not a lot of money!
Food and music just seem to go together here in Austin, The Live Music Capitol of the World! Many of our local eateries feature some form of live music, from back-yard blues to cutting edge rock-and-roll, and yes, some real live COUNTRY for those who crave a twang...be sure to check out the local acts while visiting our fair city. Top it off with a local brew, and get a taste of Texas!
Austin also hosts a variety of micro-breweries and distilleries. You might have heard of Tito's Handmade Vodka and Deep Eddy. We are also the home of hair-guru Paul Mitchell's much loved Patron Tequila! The very best margaritas are on almost every corner, but for a real treat, ask for a Mexican Martini! Or try a local beer, like 512 IPA.
While visiting Austin, be sure to check out the local wineries, famous for their mellow Hill Country vintages. The mild climate and alkaline soil breed exceptional grapes, so it's a no-brainer that Texas wines are making a statement. You can drop in to many of them to sample their wares, pet the alpacas, and buy a case or two. Or three.
Many visitors to Austin enjoy the local shopping scene. From hand-made western boots to custom-tailored blue jeans, Austin has it all. Crawl the numerous vintage shops on the East Side, or swank away the day in the Capital Area designer shops.
If Nature is your scene, you can't go wrong with the beautiful Hill Country background. Stunning vistas, lots of lakes and rivers, world-class hiking, and more await you in Austin, Texas. Take a dip at Barton Springs, zip-line across the lake, or tour the deep, mysterious caverns at Natural Bridge. Bring the family, and bring a towel!
