Austin

Going to Austin for the first time in October.

Any hidden gems or decent group activities? Outdoors/indoors, open to all ideas.

Seems like a lot of places cater to tourist groups / bachelor parties so trying to find some genuine spots.

    Austin is basically junior varsity version of Nashville. Just go to the bars. Nothing fun to do other than that area. I mean, they have a park, and you can always go to UT, maybe find a place to shoot guns and ride horses, but nothing special

    It’s just Nu-California. Expect needles amongst the vast patches of litter, obnoxious troons both in and out of college, bars that are primarily focused on beer that will give you shitty service, little to no parking that’s also going to cost you a lot, and many homeless people. And for it to still be blisteringly hot, even in October

      >vast patches of litter
      Not true, I walked everywhere in Austin and saw virtually no trash.
      >needles and homeless people everywhere
      Austin is strict these days about bums and addicts hanging around the city center. It is illegal to camp in public areas anywhere in Texas, and the police enforce the law and clear out encampments.
      >obnoxious troons
      Didn't see any on multiple visits. But I did see lots of hot girls hanging out at Barton Springs, walking the greenway trails, and getting rowdy on 7th Street.
      >shitty service at bars
      Didn't drink, can't say.
      >parking difficulties
      Free parking is plentiful and easy to find in Austin if you are not a fatass and don't mind walking a few blocks. I even spent multiple nights sleeping in my van on West Riverside Drive where dead-ends next to the river near the Pfluger pedestrian bridge. Illegal, but it was quiet, secluded and I slept well.
      >blisteringly hot
      It was 88 degrees in the middle of December when I visited, 98 degrees in early April when I passed through again, so I'll give you that one.

          Stop tossing litter in your yard, dumbass. Though maybe you live in a beaner neighborhood, they are careless about littering.

    I'll borrow this thread. I am going for some business stuff to Dallas (from Europe, first time in USA) at the end of oct.
    Is it worth extending for a couple of days and seeing anything?
    There is Frontier of flights museum, but haven't found anything else interesting?

      What do you like to do usually? Dallas is just s city but there's a little bit of everything. The strip clubs are next level but research before you pick one

      Gotta go to dirty 6. I once banged a college girl in a men's room stall there after fingering her on the dance floor

        >What do you like to do usually?
        Whatever really, I am just collecting ideas at the moment. From museums, art galleries, festivals to stripclubs (any recommendations?),nature, rodeo, maybe some sport game: nba, handegg, baseball, nascar,... To have a good Murica experience. At the end I will decide depending on which boomers from work will go along.
        It can be a tourist trap, as long as it's worth it. Or advice on what to avoid?
        I expanded the search in the whole area including Arlington and Fort Worth.
        The cattle drive at stockyards, those long horn cows looks really cool.
        Probably an airplane museum ,like Fort Worth Aviation Museum, because you can get up close to the planes.
        What food to try? Some bbq, what else?

          The best stripclub imo is the Red Rose next to that Catholic university (I forget what it's called). The place is smaller than you think on the inside, but the girls are the hottest there.

            Thanks, but that looks to be in Austin. I was asking about Dallas-Fort worth area.

          You're on the right track. The stockyards are cool. The cattle drive is under whelming because the cattle know the drill but it's still cool to see. Other than that yeah check out some museums and go see a MLB game in Arlington if you haven't been before or else nba or NHL in Dallas.

            Is it worth going to shooting range? Like texasgunexpirience have some interesting packages, but price seems a bit high? Any recommendations?
            Any particular food /place you could recommend?

              Not the anon you replied to, but I went to "The Range" in Austin (they probably have one in Dallas too) and they had some cool shooting packages, e.g. gun+rifle or even a machine gun package where they let you fire it in full automatic. Prices are high though. It will set you back at least 200$ if you want to buy extra ammo etc.
              But if you're from Europe, I'd still recommend doing it, because how else will you ever find out what it feels like to fire a gun/rifle? Pretty neat experience.

          I went to Dallas/Fort Worth less than a month ago.
          I highly recommend the stockyards. They have a lot of bars there, some with live music, and some great BBQ food.
          The cattle drive was pretty cool, but just so you know, it took only ~10 min, so be there early so you don't miss it (it's only twice a day).
          They also have very large indoors rodeo arena with weekly shows, but better look it up online beforehand so you don't pick the wrong day to go there (happened to me, ended up watching a rodeo championship on a big screen in a bar, which was also not bad though).
          In Dallas you could go visit the museum about the Kennedy assassination. It's in the building where the shots were fired from. I was surprised that the exhibition was not at all biased but pretty balanced, presenting all different theories of what exactly happened on that day. And of course you can go and see the place where Kennedy was shot (they marked the spots with X's on the street).

    I was just looking for any Austin spots that are worth it and something that is worth seeing/doing/eating amidst all the shit that is Austin

      Austin has some of the best urban trails in Texas. Lots of food trucks and local eateries too. 7th Street is a loud and crowded nightlife district with some trashy ghetto/bum areas nearby. Austin has a couple cool hostels as well. I stayed at Drifter Jack's on my backpack trip across America in 2021, it was very social and full of cool people.

    I just went and had a blast. The best thing we did was drive down to New Brunfels and go tubing on the Cormal river. The breweries were all good. BBQ was some of the best Ive ever eaten.

      Helping plan a bachelor party. My friend (groom) chose Austin. I've never been on a bachelor party so I am trying to get some great Austin spots organized

      If you have any specifics in terms of restaurants/breweries that are Must Go's or Must Avoid's please let me know

    It used to be a nice fun place. Then far left democrats turned it to shit. Expect homeless under overpasses and don't call police if you are in trouble. The city cut their funding, many retired and the city are unable to find replacements, for some strange reason.

    Went all the time in my twenties - it’s over rated. For one, it’s hot as shit right now and in a severe drought, so unless you want to go out of the city and go tubing or to the water park, all the local rivers and swimming holes will be mostly dried up. You can walk up and down soco (I guess), but once again you’re going to be hot as shit. If you come from a small town or non-Asian country, they have some ok malls up north closer to Cedar Park. The only food place I would really recommend is Kirby Lane Cafe, but it’s been so many years that they may no longer be good. The only place I would ever visit if going again is Arcade UFO. Very unique and chill spot if you’re into that sort of stuff.

    Anyway, in general the hill country is beautiful, but also very very touristy. And this is probably the worst time of year to visit given the heat and droughts. Sorry.
