Giant lakes and cold rivers were not the first things that popped into my head when I thought of Texas. That was, until I moved here. Austin is awesome and full of numerous activities for just about any person.
For one thing Austin is the live music Capitol of the world and hosts a giant music festival every year called Austin City Limits. Austin City Limits, or ACL for short, is where tons of bands come to perform at one of the eight separate stages. Usually ACL only lasts for one weekend, but last year it went on for two. My friends and I saw Kings of Leon, Kendrick Lamar, Fun, and we even went backstage to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But ACL is only one of the many wondrous things to do here in Austin TX. You can also go stand up paddle boarding on lake Austin, or catch a bite at one of the numerous food trailers around downtown Austin. One of my favorite things to do here, is go wake boarding on the lake by my house. During the summer, I’m always begging my dad to take me out on the boat.
If all this doesn’t sound completely awesome to you, then I don’t know what will. As I’ve been saying this whole time, Austin is great and I’m glad that my family and I ended up in this amazing city.
