Live Like a Local

A lot of Austinites are quite proud to be an Austinite. Whether they have lived there for 6 months, since college, or if they were born and raised there, Austin’s people love to have their friends in town and show off this great city they call home.  Unfortunately, those out-of-town friends always ask about the same damn spots.  Time and time again, every Austinite gets stuck in the same routine with each visit from a friend.  You’ve oohed and ahhed at the view at Oasis, you’ve taken your folk to dirty 6th, and you could basically be a full-blown tour guide at the Capitol at this point after all these visits.  But now it’s time to love the part of this city that made it so great in the first place. Escape from the mainstream version of Austin people read about on the internet and check out our list of properties around local hot spots and live like a local
