    By night Austin really comes alive. Live music is available in nearly every bar in the city, giving the city the nickname 'The Live Music Capital of the World'. Nowhere is this truer than on the lively 6th Street, where you can hear every genre of music coming out of the many bars to adorn the street. Although nightlife plays a big part in Austin's culture, so does its food. Tex Mex and Barbecue are the main staples here, and restaurants such as Franklins are not to be missed while in town. Look at for one of the many food trucks around town too, where you can grab a quick bite to eat from some of the best street food around.

    Come October, Austin is also home to the US Grand Prix. The biggest race on the calendar in North America is held at the famous Circuit of the America's racetrack, about 15 minutes south of downtown. During the Grand Prix weekend, Austin really comes to life, with concerts, events and attractions aplenty.
