Stay Weird, Austin

Austin has fought for centuries to stay true to itself and its people, and it is one of the precious few cities to have succeeded. Walk the streets of Austin, and you will find some of the rarest parks, shops, and pieces of art in the world. Rare because they only had to measure up to the whims of their creators, and Austin shouldered the responsibility to keep them safe.
