About Austin

In the state capital of Texas, we pride ourselves on being far from ordinary. In fact, we celebrate being “weird.” We’re known for being the Live Music Capital of the World, a title that we take pretty seriously with nearly 200 live music venues. As the gateway to the Texas Hill Country, rolling hills and sparkling waterways abound in Austin. Each night during the summer, people gather to watch over 1 million bats take flight from underneath the Congress Avenue Bridge. Some of the country’s best Tex-Mex and barbecue restaurants can be found here. All this just scratches the surface of what makes Austin like no place else.


Austin Convention Center

The Austin Convention Center is located at 500 E. Cesar Chavez in downtown Austin, Texas. The most convenient entrances to use are located at 4th Street and Trinity or 4th Street and Neches.
