Visited Austin during a SXSW festival so that was probably not a real picture of what it is like but still had a fun time! Sixth street lived up to all that I had heard and so did the BBQ. During the festival, it was an awesome vibe with drinking and music virtually everywhere. And yes the keeping Austin weird vibe is still well and alive in Austin. There are too many bars and food places to pick from, I say if it looks fun just go in and give it a try. Overall I had a lot of fun and look forward to heading back in the future.
