Texas, Austin Guide (B): Three Days in Austin: A Travel Guide

In early January, Aaron and I escaped the Kansas City cold and hopped on a plane for an adult's only trip to Austin, Texas (our first kid free getaway since our Hermann Getaway back in August).

You'll definitely want a car to get around, as the city has so many different areas that are fun to explore- and not all of them are close together.
