Austin travel tips

1) Avoid leaving garbage in wrong places not to end up with a fine in Austin

The parks of Austin are monitored carefully for cleanliness. Huge fines are applied for leaving garbage in places not designated for this purpose. Don’t neglect local rules and enjoy your stay in Austin without getting any fines.

2) Tap into Austin’s Cathedral of Junk

Don’t get surprised, but yes, the Cathedral of Junk exists in Austin. It looks like a rusty piece of iron that consists of plastic, old toys, wires, and all the stuff that owners refused to dump. The “cathedral” is the work of the resident who decided to build an art object from his garbage in his backyard. His neighbours liked the idea and contributed to the project with their trash. Today the object is 30 years old, and it has become a real attraction. Have a look at it!

3) Lovers of Buddhist culture will appreciate Sitagu Buddha Vihara in Austin

If you are interested in Buddist culture, you should definitely visit Sitagu Buddha Vihara in Austin. It is an incredible Buddist temple in a tranquil area of Austin. Visiting it feels like you are somewhere in Burma, not in the capital of Texas. Experience another Austin you haven’t seen yet.
