I first visited Austin when I was much younger (the mid-1970's) with my father and friends to watch Texas Longhorn football games (Earl Campbell days). I also remember buying my first 14-speed bicycle at Freewheeling bike shop (which used to be on 24th St. near the UT campus). I loved Austin so much, I subsequently moved here in the early 80's to attend summer school at UT (just two weeks after graduating from high school).
Austin has since grown and changed dramatically from a sleepy college town to a technological hub a.k.a "Silicon Hills." There are countless activities in Austin, so if you're visiting the area, you may also want to check out the surrounding Hill Country.
Below are just a few photos and videos of the many scenic locations in this beautiful, tech-savvy city.
