Wildsam Field Guide : Austin by Taylor Bruce

The gateway to the American West. Home to cosmic cowboys and pit bosses, Silicon Hills and Barton Springs. It’s a place famous for the offbeat, the wide-open, a frontier disregard for the norm. Far more than weird, its sense of possibility feels a part of the limestone strata, cut long before taglines and tee shirts. You feel this independent vibe everywhere, from taco trailers to neon shops to live music every night of the year. As hotelier Liz Lambert says, “If you grow up in Texas, and you’re a little different, all roads lead to Austin.”
