AUSTIN, Texas – The neighborhood is a bonafide hot spot, but has managed to retain its roots in art and the local community. There are few gems like this left in the world.
ROUND TOP, Texas – The atmosphere is equal parts carnival and commerce, and the variety of items is staggering. It is my favorite treasure-hunting experience in the world.
AUSTIN, Texas – The award for Best Class goes to ABS-olutely Paddle Board, combining boarding with core workouts. Due to a complete lack of coordination, I didn't brave it, but it sounds fun.
