My gf and I are going to be in Austin the beginning of June for a few days (looks like Friday thru Monday morning, Saturday is booked) and staying at an Embassy Suites-Central Austin. I was wondering what is there to do with such a short amount of time? What is recommended? We both love history, the outdoors and are in decent shape (so we dont mind walking). Do we need a car? What about food/drinks?
I have been told itll be really hot (we are from Florida so thats not a problem) and springs are nice and not to miss the "bats" or 6th Street (?).
