Eat, drink, swim, hike your way through Austin, TX.
Howdy! 🤠

My name is Katy Turner, and I am a Customer Success Manager at Coda. I moved to Austin over 11 years ago, and have had a blast exploring the city. I love helping first time visitors get to know Austin, and to share recommendations with other Austinites. After drafting complex lists via email, I decided to make it easy to view options, keep track of reservations, and peek at the weather forecast.

Feel free to use this doc to devise a full itinerary (click

Understanding Austin’s geography:

There are some well loved and well defined neighborhoods in Austin, but you’ll find that areas are generally described in reference to downtown.
Downtown:
the area between the two major highways (Mopac and I35), north of the river and south of University of Texas.
East Austin:
generally referenced as the area north of the river and east of I35.
North Austin:
the area north of downtown, between Mopac and I35.
South Austin:
the area south of the river/downtown.
West Austin
: the area west of Mopac.
Very
West Austin:
I used this term liberally, as I reference several locations not technically in Austin, but a 20-40 minute drive away. ( But, these places are definitely worth exploring!)
