There are many things to admire about Texas' capital, but what I love most about it is the eclectic & artsy vibe that oozes from every place you step.
Our first morning we went on a mural "scavenger hunt" and traveled all over the city in search of the larger-than life paintings that make Austin the iconic city it is.
We also had dinner at Magnolia Cafe one night. Notice the trend? You could plan an entire vacation "eating your way through" Austin; there are endless selections of one-of-a-kind, local restaurants to choose from, and we could have easily stayed another few days just to eat at all the places we had on our list.
Magnolia Cafe has a, "Sorry, we're OPEN" sign out front, which matches the quirky vibe of the restaurant's decor, menu, and wait staff. It's open 24 hours a day, was delicious, and we will definitely go back.
I hope to use some of the photos from our trip as inspiration for some new paintings!
Happy Monday, everyone!
