6. Take in Some Art

Austin isn’t just a historical city; it also has a ton of art, music, and culture. Go to the Contemporary Austin, the Blanton Museum of Art, the Mexic-Arte Museum, or any of the number of places that showcase street art around the city.

7. See More Live Shows

And of course you can’t forget about music in the Live Music Capital. Make a New Year’s resolution to see as many shows as you can fit into your schedule this upcoming year. If you really want to go big, top it off with tickets to SXSW.
