I plan on flying into Texas around St Patricks day in March, and eventually driving down to South Padre. What city do you guys recommend? Dallas, Houston, or San Antonio?
Thanks guys, my only problem with Austin is that I heard a lot of transplants moved there....similar to whats gng on where I live in brooklyn......Almost everyone is telling me to try Dallas, so I might fly into Dallas/ft worth. I'll keep you updated.
Not that it is a problem per se, defiantely very good for the local economy, but in the last 5 years Brooklyn has become the "hot spot"....Sort of like Seattle in the 1990's. There are certain parts of Brooklyn where almost 90% of the people aren't from Brooklyn originally, ex: williamsburg, carroll gardens, etc etc. If I go to Texas I want to see cowboys, steers, and eat BBQ....lol
Austin area by far has best BBQ. Landers downtown for fancy BBQ or Salt Lick for amazing rustic experience OR if you want to get serious go to the town of Lockhart for the original experience. Austin has a more authentic Texas feel than Dallas. Dallas is just an LA wannabe. You won't find cowboys and steers unless you go to Ft Worth. The happening spots in Dallas is the Uptown and surrounding area.. lots of 20s/30s (and 40/50 year olds who think they are 20 years younger) with tons of clubs/bars/restaurants.. a very walkable area. The rest of Dallas is a concrete highway.
BTW I lived in Dallas for 15 years and 8 years in Austin and have been every where in between.
