Austin Bucket List

One of my goals for 2014 was to be a tourist in my own hometown.  If you’ve followed me since my Memphis days, you know this has always been important to me.  Explore. Do. Sightsee.  Learn.  Wherever you live, the history, culture and activities of your hometown are unique and you should soak them up!

My situation is perhaps a little more unique because I might be running out of time.  I moved to Austin a year and a half ago to start graduate school at UT.  I like this town a lot, and it has provided ample opportunities for me to learn and grow in my field.  But I know it is not my home.  I will not settle here.  I will not dig the roots of my fitness business here.  I know for sure I will be here through the end of school (May) and through the end of the lease on my house (early August) but after that I have no plans.  No plans to leave, no plans to stay.  I’ve got six months to make those plans but in case of the latter, I do have plans to DO a lot of things in and around Austin!

Here is a Bucket List my roommates and I have constructed for things we’d like to do before we leave:

  • First Thursday (SoCo)
  • Gospel Brunch – Stubb’s
  • Roller Derby
  • Top Golf
  • Peter Pan Mini Golf
  • In.Gredients Trivia Night
  • Greenbelt
  • Hamilton Pool
  • Float the River
  • Tower Tour
  • Two Stepping
  • Capitol Tour
  • National Park
  • Boat on the Lake
  • Bat Bridge
  • McKinney Falls
  • Chicken Shit Bingo
  • Hippie Hollow
  • Wimberley
  • Run the Cap 10k
  • Fredericksburg
  • Juan in a Million
  • Uchi
  • Freddie’s
  • Mozart’s
  • Enchanted Rock
  • Explore Downtown
  • Slam Poetry (Spiderhouse)

A pretty comprehensive list I’d say!  Some restaurants, some outdoor activities, some culture, some history.  The list is by no means complete so if you have a suggestion for something for me to do before I peace outta this town, let me know!
