Walk About or Rock Out in Austin, Texas for Four Days & Three Nights at the Fairmont Austin for Two, Including Your Choice of a Food is my Best Friend Tour or an Austin Live Music Crawl (Land Only)

Austin offers rich cultural history, yet continues to be an ever-evolving city, and an excellent place to experience the stunning outdoors and explore the countless music venues that string together the Live Music Capital of the World! Austin has over 270 live music venues, so skip the cover bands and jam out to authentic music all over the city! Or put on your walking shoes for the Food Is My Best Friend food tour, and walk away with a little Texas pride - you'll feel like a local in no time.

A towering icon within the vibrant Central Business District, Fairmont Austin is uniquely located amid the lush greenery of Palm Park and Waller Creek, and directly connected to the Austin Convention Center. This 37-story luxury hotel features resort-style amenities, richly-appointed rooms with unique views, exquisite dining and a pampering spa - downtown's largest and most impressive! The seventh floor terrace features an elegant, seasonally-heated pool with zero entry for chaise lounging in the water, exclusive cabanas and a grand cabana. The staff awaits the opportunity to ensure your expectations are exceeded and your time in the Texas Hill Country is unforgettable. When you feel like venturing off the premises, you'll find that Fairmont Austin is within walking distance of the State Capitol, restaurants, galleries and shops.

Experience the city by taste or by sound with your choice of a food tour or a live music crawl! Serving up everything from down-home barbecue to gourmet sweets, Austin's food scene is a highlight of the city, but a wealth of options mean it's hard to know where to begin. Skip the tourist joints and go straight to the local favorites on a food walking tour of Austin that starts with a hearty serving of barbecue, then takes you all the way through dessert with a series of tastings! Your first stop is at Terry Black's, where you will sample over a pound of the most mouth-watering barbecue Austin has to offer. Sausage, ribs and chopped beef are all on the menu, along with delicious sides and an ice cold beer or soda! Everybody knows you can't do a Texas food tour without tacos and queso, so after you have quenched your thirst, it's off to Torchy's Famous Tacos! Next stop, Austin's best smoothies at The Soup Peddler. The tour will take a quick photo at the Greetings From Austin mural before stopping for award-winning dessert at Sugar Mamma's Bakery.

If music is your jam, opt for the Live Music Crawl, where you'll hear about Austin's live music history, get the latest scoop on the current music scene and see iconic venues and new clubs, all while getting an overview of the city. These live music tours are led by a local musician and chauffeured in a Mercedes Sprinter van. So get out of downtown and see the real Austin for three incredible hours, during which you'll visit up to three venues. If you enjoy fun people, live music, and learning about the city of Austin, this is the tour for you - it simply rocks!

Your trip for two includes:
• 4 days/3 nights accommodations at the Fairmont Austin
• Daily complimentary breakfast
• All room-related taxes
