All in all I would have liked to go to more parks in Austin, ate more tex-mex and BBQ, but the fam wanted to get out and see the countryside which ended up being one of the best things we did. The downtown area of Austin was really really nice, but the second you got out of downtown it was pretty run down. I was really surprised by this. Everything was overgrown and not well maintained. I wouldn't mind going back to a race, but not sure Austin would be my destination.
