Austin, Texas

“Austin has the second largest vegetarian population in the nation….along with some great scenery here in the hill country. People should check it out. My older brother lives there, and works as a chef. Almost every night we get 2 or 3 bucks from each of his roommates, head up to Central Market and get tons of fresh fruit, vegetables, etc. – and have a giant veggie-kabob for dinner. It feeds everyone and also provides for a great way to get together at night in the backyard and just hang out. Barton Creek Park is another great hangout – it’s a linear park that follows Barton Creek – along the cliff walls there are several caves for exploring… just a totally surreal environment. Everyone in Austin just seems so mellow and content, i wish i could live there – but for now I’ll just be happy with visiting….”

Comments about Austin, Texas

  • Austin is a very laid back town. My only gripe is that “hippy” seems to be a very big fad right now. By that I mean everyone down to your run of the mill corporate businessman is sporting the sandals and hemp-ware. Don’t get me wrong, if they’re really walking the talk, so to speak, then I’ve got no problem with them.
    Other than that, Austin’s a pretty hip college town. Besides being beautiful (oh that hill country), it’s also a pretty safe place to walk around at night. Overall: Great music, great bars, southern hospitality, and relatively inexpensive living.

  • Great review, you really do Austin it’s justice. In response to the previouse response, i agree that “hippie” has become more of a fasion trend then idealism, that kinda gets to me, but the more peace lovers in the world we can get right now the better right? Austin is indeed the live music capitol of the world, and i wouldnt leave here for anything.

    PEACE

  • As an Austin native (and still residing), move down here and you will not regret it! I’ve been several places in the U.S. (Chicago being one of my favs) but, and though this may be bias, Austin truly is a wonderful city. It’s not huge, but it’s big enough to not feel desolate. There are sooo many places to go and things to do, from the greenbelt (sculpture falls being a personal fav) to hamilton pool. We have our fair share of fairly corporate “hippie” stores like Central Market and Whole Foods (with Sun Harvest on the rise), but there are also wonderful places like the Wheatsville Co-op, and Mr. Natural to name a couple. The crowd is very diverse. It has its [gigantic] share of college kids, as well as suits and such. I know I’m supposed to be rating the review, but I just can’t help but brag a little more about a small peice of heaven ūüôā

  • i visited austin for the first time last summer. i loved it and hope to move there one day. while i was there i saw WSP right outside of austin in a town called bees cave! also right outside of austin is Hippie Hollow….a nude beach opened daily. what a great state!!!!

    everyone i encountered was friendly!

  • SO I AM NEW TO AUSTIN AND I STILL HAVENT REALLY MET ANY COOL CATS. WHERE DOES EVERYONE GATHER? WHERE ARE MY RAINBOW SISTERS AND BROTHERS? I CALL OUT TO YOU. SOMEONE EMAIL ME AND MAYBE WE CAN COME TOGETHER. LETS GO FURTHER, PEOPLE OF THE SUN.

  • HA HA , BY THE WAY MY EMAIL ADDRESS IS MUST OF FORGET TO WRITE IT ON MY MESSAGE. IRIE!!!

  • Austin is not a hippie haven. Its the capitol of a mean ass state. Its hot, and it sucks in everyone semi-like-minded in the south. They’re not really hippies. They’re pretend hippies. Just because you get high and wear hemp doesn’t mean you’re really a hippie.

    Avoid Austin if you can. Go to the pacific northwest. Its the real deal. Austin is just a fad.

  • What I’m typeing has nothing to do with Austin but with TX period….. I just moved to Houston two months ago and so far I’ve met alot of people and I have to confess that TX is the most closeminded place I ever been in my life and I’ve been just about everywhere these people don’t know the meaning of mind expansion and further more I can’t count how many times I’ve been called a nigger strait out to my face…. All they seem to car about is trucks and killing animals. Take my advise never go to the south…..

  • I’ve lived in Austin for 22 years. It used to be cool; Now it sucks. It’s getting just like Dallas, with the amount of traffic and rude people growing daily. All these out of towners are moving here. The real hippies are long gone. Also, the population of queers and child molesters is growing rapidly here. We need to do something about these sick people; FAST! (if you know what I mean). I think you do. As one great punk band stated–ELIMINATION, ERADICATION, ANNIHILATION, of the FUCKING QUEER NATION. FAGBASHERS UNITE!

  • yeah, badass! Finally somebody’s right on track about this filth-filled hole some call a hippie town. Let’s bash these fags right out of this town and let em know we’re tired of this queer shit. How can I join you guys whoever you are?

  • austin is full of bitch ass niggaz. fucking hippie drum circles everywhere. queer ass bitches fucked up on meth. i’m going to burn this place.

  • What the hell is wrong with you guys? Why should you care what two consenting adults do in the bedroom? It’s none of your goddamn business. I thought this was supposed to be about Austin, not “fagbashing”. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s narrow minded fucks like you that burn down abortion clinics, pick on minorities, and support violence as a solution to all problems. I give a message to all these people. FUCK YOU! Besides, alot of you so called “fagbashers” enjoy anal sex with women. How is this different when it involves two men? Perhaps you’re all closet gays who are scared someone will out you.

  • you poser ass bitches F Bitch U!!!! you aint nothin but a stoner republican faciest capitilist conformist……a hippy, punk, or anything else considered to be a free thinking movement…has to be that FREETHINKING…..you cant be a homophobe hippy or punk pisswipe!!!! i am a 26 year old gutterpunk transsexual with a hippy mother…..i am in dallas…..bash me bitch i dare you….oak lawn area….ask for shadow.

  • I’m gonna be in Austin for a month over the SXSW music festival but I don’t know a soul there. So if any of you(minus the gay bashers) would wanna be cool enough to check some bands out with me some night it’d be greatly appreciated. I don’t mind rockin’ it by myself, but rockin’ it by myself every night would kinda suck. If ya wanna e-mail me it’s jareemweaver@yahoo.com

  • to the sub-human piece of filth who calls ITSELF shadow: you will be found in dallas, and beaten into oblivion, with many steel toes. you think you have the right to adopt children and train them in your sickening ways. it’s time to save our children and wipe out the existence of your kind! gutterpunk you say. try gutterspunk! this filth-filled hole called austin, has been spawned from the town created from shit called dallas where you lie in your own soiled sheets. it’s over for you. change your ways now or be crushed! FAGBASHERS UNITE! FAGBASHERS UNITE! FAGBASHERS UNITE!

  • In the ’70s Austin was really a ‘Groover’s Paradice’ as the song goes. Since then, the Californicator tech assholes have ruined the place. A real hippie would skip off this town fast, if looking for a laid back lifestyle.
    The hippies of the fabled period when the Armadillo World Headquarters and Soap Creek were the best music venues, have long gone. What remains of them still in town are homosexuals, overwhelmed Earth-mothers raising the last of their kids, sell-outs to the real estate business and other forlorn losers. Austin is a classic case of left coast opportunists destroying what was once wonderful.
    The hippies of ‘old Austin’ have headed for the hills and now live an hour or two to the west. There are places there where they still congregate but I would never reveal them here! If you are young and seek that fabled hippie life style you must do more homework. The answer is no longer Austin. You have a good chance of sucess if you can support yourself away from large business centers and residential housing devevopments.
    Searching for a hippie lifestyle in a traffic congested city is a waste of time. Like looking for them at Haight – Ashbury in S. F. To any of you who really know of what I speak then the message remains as before, ” Onward Through the Fog”

  • ok well, i dont know about fagbashers, or posers …. i live in austin and it is a wonderful place to live. I FUCKIN LOVE IT so if you have a prolblem, suck my CUNT. i DONT FUCKIN CARE WHAT YOU THINK I LOVE MY CITY AND MY STATE. ok well, peace love and happiness to you all! FUCK HEADS
