Enjoy a good breakfast to start the day. Snooze and AM Eatery is the perfect place for breakfast. Located in South Lamar, the restaurant is designed to look like a retro spot and serves ingenious breakfast dishes. They also serve cocktails all day, so order a mimosa to go with the French toast.

Visit the State Capitol. It’s located in central Austin and hard to miss for travelers hoping to see all Austin has to offer. Entry to the building is free. It’s a nice place to wander around and most of the inside and outside of the building have not changed since it was first built.

A good budget eat for lunch is the Asian restaurant Koriente. They offer free salad and miso soup with any lunch meal. Travelers can fill up here and get ready for the rest of their day. The affordable aspect of the restaurant does not affect the quality of food in any way. Plan to spend $10 or less on a meal.

Take a hike at Mount Bonnell. The hike will use up a few hours in the afternoon as it’s located in a 5.1-acre park and the peak is the highest spot in the area. Walking to the top takes time, but it’s worth the effort because at the top is a gorgeous view of the city.

Grab a taco or an Asian-fusion meal at The Peached Tortilla. It’s an Asian-fusion restaurant known for making unique taco dishes. It’s great for family night or date night as the atmosphere is fun and lively. They also have a great selection of whiskies on the menu. A meal shouldn’t cost more than $20.

Travel Clothing with Secret Pockets

The idea of secret pockets in travel gear was once about waist wallets lying flesh on your stomach and awkward inner pockets. The location not only made it impossible for pickpockets to get to but also travelers trying to access their passports and cash. Other travel clothes promise to deter pick-pocketers but are also difficult to manage the bulky inner pockets while exploring.
