Things To Do in Austin

I have a couple of places around the web where I bookmark and make notes on Austin things

  • Yelp – I love Yelp. It enables me to read up on what everyone else thinks of a place AND chime in with my own opinions. If I could, I’d send you there exclusively so you would not only get my opinion on the places I like, but also hear what others have to say. Unfortunately, Yelp doesn’t let me keep a list of things that I haven’t personally reviewed.  Because of that, this list is sadly lacking.
  • Delicious – Delicious is essentially a bookmarking service. I’ve started this list of bookmarks of Austin things I think are worthy of doing. You can narrow down the bookmarks you see by using the categories on the right. I only include things I think are worthy of spending your time and money on.
  • Since I love Yelp so much but may be letting you down with my sparse list, I’ve compiled a couple of other people’s lists that you might find useful:

Some of our favorite places are located right around the corner from the condo.
