Finally finishing up our Texas trip with a little roundup (pun intended) of the things we left out of previous posts! First off – if you’re in the Austin area and have a little time to venture out of the city, I highly suggest you visit Georgetown. We spent a almost a full day in their town square and loved the relaxed, small-town vibe it had.
We’ve been hopping around on the blog lately, but as many of you know we went to Texas in November. Before we knew it the whirlwind of the holidays came and went and we still have a lot of Texas activities to fill you in on, such as our trip to San Antonio!
One of Cailin and I’s favorite things to do when we visit a new place is to just walk around. There were so many cool things to see so we kept snapping photos to share with you all! We loved how quirky and Americana everything looked in the South Congress area.
If you’ve been keeping up with us or follow us on Instagram, then you already know how much we love doughnuts. I have to take this chance to link back to some of our old posts on Dough, Dun-Well, and Montclair Bread Co. so you can see how our artisanal doughnut hunt has gone so far. When looking up doughnut shops in Austin, I saw that Voodoo Doughnut had opened only two weeks prior in the Sixth Street District. I have been wanting to try their crazy looking doughnuts so this trip was the perfect opportunity! Since it is relatively new, the lines can get a little long but we got there early in the morning and beat the rush.
Our flight landed in Austin, TX just in time for dinner! Lucky us, since there are so many great places to eat in Austin. We heard a lot of good things about the burger bar, Hopdoddy, and since it was fairly close to our Airbnb we decided to give it a try. The menu and setup reminded us of Umami Burger in the city, and being major fans of Umami Burger we had high hopes that it’d be as equally delicious.
