Take a Trip to Austin Texas

By: Lauren Closs

Famous Tourist Sites

Some fun places to visit in Austin Texas are Lake Austin, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, and Lake Travis. When traveling to these sites be sure to bring along some sun screen, because even though it's winter you will be exposed to the sun.


Recomended Food Joints

If you get hungry some great places to stop and get some food are The Strand, Texas BBQ Trail, and Louviney Winery, Restaurant and Vineyard. If you have kids then I wouldn't suggest you go to Louviney Winery, Restaurant and Vineyard as there will be alcoholic beverages there.
