Austin, Texas - South Congress

Once the Christmas festivities were over, we actually got to venture out in Austin and do some sightseeing. My brother and sister-in-law took us to an eclectic and adorable neighborhood called South Congress. It's lined with the most amazing antique shops, boutiques and cafes. Across the street from the shops is a food "trailer park," a converted parking lot for food trucks (Texans call food trucks "food trailers"). We spent the afternoon wandering through the shops and then stopped at the food trailer park for some snacks and a cold beverage. I could spend all day in South Congress!
