For many years Austin has been known as one of the music capitols in the world and of course Texas barbecue is king around these parts. But, the one ingredient that makes this Texas capitol city so special, are all the friendly and diverse folks that have created the awesome Austin of today.

While we were in town we sat down with some of those local friendly’s to get their side of this very cool and growing city.

An Urban Oasis In Austin

As we talked about in a recent travel episode, Austin is one of the hottest cities to travel in 2018 and might just be getting a lot more awesome-er (it’s a word) when the “Urban Oasis” that is the brand spanking new Fairmont Austin opens later this year.

Located smack dab in the middle of downtown, this brand-new gem of a hotel is a great addition to the expanding Austin skyline.

On This Podcast Episode:

Our good friend, Director of Communications for the Fairmont Austin, Casey Barks gave Jeff, my co-host, and me a behind the scenes tour of their brand-new property. This Texas-sized hotel will now be the largest Fairmont which towers 37 stories high and holds 1,048 rooms, with five of the most anticipated restaurants opening in 2018, including a food hall.

Turn An Obligation Into A Vacation

We’ve all had those kinds of trips that we know we have to go on (aka those work trips), but we’re dreading the whole time leading up. Whether it’s that fifth business trip to Des Moines this year, visiting the parental units in Florida or the yearly trek to your companies retreat in Seattle – these are obligations, not vacations. However, turning an obligation into a vacation can be one of the best win-win strategies around.

On This Podcast Episode:

On this week’s Travel Episode we are cracking the code on those obligation trips and turning them into “obli-vations.” We are talking eating like locals, exploring a new part of town and people watching at the neighborhood watering hole. Also, discover ways you can use your credit card to rack up some serious rewards while you’re on your obligation trip – and then how you can turn those points into a vacation of your dreams (or at least something enjoyable).
