As your trusted local realtor team deeply rooted in this dynamic city, we're here to provide a comprehensive guide that combines the best of SXSW and Austin's local treasures.


Exploring Austin Beyond Festival Grounds:

For out-of-towners, the magic of Austin extends far beyond the festival grounds. Take a leisurely stroll over to Zilker Park for a picnic and discover where Austin City Limits takes place each October. Meander around Lady Bird Lake for a dose of nature downtown, showcasing the city's commitment to green spaces. And for food enthusiasts, brace yourself for a culinary adventure! The Eberly, Perlas, Uchi, and the original Chuys are just a few of the local gems that will tantalize your taste buds.

SXSW Extravaganza:

Now, onto the SXSW extravaganza itself. The festival offers an unparalleled blend of music, film, tech, and innovation. From groundbreaking panels featuring industry giants to awe-inspiring musical performances, there's something for every soul. Take the chance to discover rising talents and connect with trailblazers shaping the future. Keynote speakers like Jane Fonda, Dwyane Wade, Devery Jacobs & More bring their insights and knowledge to our local stage. Check out the official schedule here.
