Spotlight on Texas - Austin!

I'm a born and raised Texas girl with the extent of that year and a half on the West Coast. I came back and that's what counts. 
We call Austin home now. We've been here for 2 years and can't think of a better place to be. It's the best of everything, and it's Texas of course! Here are all the reasons that I think you should move visit Austin.
#1 Zilker Park's Barton Springs: 
This is Hubs favorite place. No kidding the man swims daily come rain or shine. The Springs are beautiful, natural spring fed swimming area that remains 68 degrees year round. It is definitely a must do when you are in town.
#2 Jo's Coffee
With their iconic "I love you so much" graffiti and a nice cup of Jo. This is a great place to sit and people watch and there are always fun people to watch along the South Congress. 
#3 Bat Watching: Congress Street Bridge
We have yet to make it out to the bridge at just the right time. Nightly from April to October the bats fly out at dusk and are quite a sight.

#4 Homeslice Pizza: South CongressAfter trying this our first week in town on a friend recommendation, it has continued to be a weekly tradition for the past 2 years. They have the most amazing pizza and subs. There is always an awesome mix of music playing, booths are great for large groups, or enjoy a seat at the counter and watch you pizza made. Kids get a plate of pizza dough to play with while mom and dad can enjoy a glass of wine or a cold one.  
Make sure that while you are here you stop by our awesome mural  and take you souvenir post card photos.
