Visit Austin just wrapped its sixth annual Airstream tour, which included stops in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and New York City to promote Austin’s adorable weirdness. “The road trip was a chance for us to take a sample of Austin on the road and show other markets what we have to offer in our city,” says Tom Noonan, president and CEO of Visit Austin. “This series gave us the opportunity to promote the culture, music and creativity of our city.”

To do so, Visit Austin hosted tailgates, musical performances and film screenings across the country while livestreaming many of the activities. During the tour, Visit Austin gave away a trip to Austin and other prizes. For a closer look at this CVB on the road, check out the tour’s official hashtag, #ATXAirstream. 

If there is a better hair-of-the-dog drink than a bloody mary, we sure don’t know what it is. Visit Beaumont shared its recipe for a tasty Sunday brunch cocktail, and they even made it for eight, so you can treat your friends!

 

Born and raised in Bryan, about 90 miles east of Village of Salado, Chadley Hollas, Village of Salado’s director of tourism, says he came to the town with one goal: to help Salado become Texas’ best small destination. His favorite thing about his adopted hometown is the people. “They are quirky, creative and hospitable—a neat combination that makes for many good conversations,” says Hollas.
