You might want a short rest before heading out on the town to experience the amazing nightlife that has made this town famous. We would direct you to Congress Street, the heart of Austin’s happening scene, though you are on your own deciding between wonderful Central Texas cuisine at Trace or authentic Mexican at one of downtown’s most recognized eateries, Manuels. With the night still young you will now have a chance to experience the live music that put this town on the map.
