Austin touted as travel destination

“From scruffy honky-tonks to slick boutique hotels, Austin walks the line between old school and new” is the subtitle for the three-page article in yesterday’s NYT Sunday style magazine focusing on travel (“Texas Two-Step,” byline Jim Lewis). There are more on-line pix than there were in the print version.

As with other pieces of this type, the Austin depicted is not everyone’s Austin, but this article does focus on what’s close in and seems to say “NoCo” to the “SoCo” term, preferring “South Congress” instead.

Coming in for a mention I count four lodging establishments (including my old home, the Austin Motel), eight dining establishments, and four clubs and watering holes. Would you recommend the same ones? It’s easy to disagree, but not always easy to come up with a handy list for all those visitors soon to descend upon us.
