Travel Thursdays – Austin Texas (SoCo South Congress)

So last December our good friends Kristina and Patrick got married in Austin, Texas. So naturally Dave and I figured it was a good time to hit the road and drive from California to Texas (then Illinois and back to California.) 🙂

I have been to Texas many times but this was my first time to Austin. I’d heard so much about it and how awesome it is and was really excited to finally get to go.

We met with our friends Kathleen and Greg the day after the wedding and went to South Congress Ave, otherwise known as SoCo. It’s a cute street full of shopping and food. Here are a few of my favorite pictures that we took that day.  IMG_0930

Austin has a lot of personality and is known for a lot of things. Before I went I looked up things people suggested seeing while in town and this graffiti wall kept coming up. It’s on the side of the building at Jo’s Coffee and the address is

1300 S Congress Ave 

Austin, TX 78704

That night we camped with our friends at McKinney Falls State Park. Here is our peaceful campsite. Winter camping, Texas style. IMG_0949
