Austin Texas is a perfect long weekend getaway with over 200 live music venues, awesome food, tons of entertainment, and many unique landmarks. This capital city in Texas is a top destination for music lovers, foodies and those looking for a fun and funky city for a getaway. Many compare it to Portland, Oregon, so if you are looking for that vibe, a trip to Austin might be a good choice for you. Four days is barely enough to scratch the surface of this live music capital of the world.  We tried cramming in as much as we could on a walking tour of the city in just four days, using an occasional Uber ride here and there to save time and our feet.  This video best captures the essence of what Austin is all about - live music.
