My sister and I are coming to Austin in late November to hang out for a few days, neither of us have been before. Can anyone recommend some hotels or neighborhoods we should be looking to stay in.
we are young (late 20's and I am 30), I would like to be within walking distance to good restaurants and shopping. We are definitely coming in part to eat some good food, so restaurant suggestions are also welcome, especially anything off the beaten path (ugh, i just wrote that) that locals would go to, I don't want anything touristy, feel free to also let me know if there are any places we should pass on.
I am also open to any suggestions about fun things to do or cool places we should see. I would also be interested in doing some outdoor hiking or things of that nature.
After re-reading this, I am basically asking you to plan my trip - so suggestions please :)
Thanks in advance!
