Arrive in any large airport in the United States, and youâ€™ll immediately be greeted by all the stereotypical tourism clichÃ©s that the surrounding area has to offer. Baltimore? Have some crab cakes. Boston? Lobster and Sam Adams. Dallas? Barbecue.
Land in Austinâ€™s airport and youâ€™re greeted with music and pleas to â€œkeep Austin weirdâ€. But what does that mean exactly? Iâ€™ve always heard that Austin was unique to Texas; a haven for food, music and technology. But finding the truth in that was proving to be elusive.
