Here's how to live large in the "Live Music Capital of the World", straight from the people who help make it the funky cultural melting pot that it is.

1. FREDDIE STEADY KRC

Texas Music Hall of Fame inductee, singer - songwriter, and session guitarist and drummer freddiesteadykrc.com

"South Austin Popular Culture Center is the first place I suggest visitors check out. It has quite a large collection of posters, prints, and photographs that go back through the 1960s. It showcases our pop history, revealing how Austin came to be the point of destination it
has become.”southpop.org

2. EVE MONSEES

Co-owner of legendary Antone’s Record Shop antonesrecordshop.com 

“Mount Bonnell is one of those places that feels so removed even though you’re in the middle of town. On a pretty day, it’s a wonderful place to escape the traffic and everything.” mountbonnell.com

3. KAREEM BADR

Improvisational actor, co-owner of Hideout Coffee House and Theatre hideouttheatre.com

“Sweet Ritual is a vegan ice cream shop that’s just ridiculous. There are hilarious flavors like Cinnamonkey Elephantastic, and they mess around with savory flavors, like mixing in basil. I usually get Cubano Coffee. I’m a sucker for coffee.” sweetritual.com

4. RACHEL  CLEMENS

Chief Marketing Officer, Mighty Citizen creativesuitcase.com

"The place where everyone from  hipsters to hippies goes to escape the heat is Barton Springs Pool. You feel like you’ve been transported back to a time when you can dip your toes in a nice cool swimming hole – until thong guy shows up, snaps you back to reality, and reminds you that you’re in Austin.” austintexas.gov

5. VERONICA ROBERTS

Curator of modern and contemporary art at the Blanton Museum of Art blantonmuseum.org

“My new favorite restaurant is Launderette. Divine food, and I love the interior design – simple, not fussy." launderetteaustin.com
