To represent their unique style, Austinites have adopted the unofficial slogan “Keep Austin Weird.” Everything about this Southern city is uncommon, giving you plenty of fun and quirky ways to go green and stay fit.

Get your caffeine fix at Progress Coffee which roasts small batches of coffee beans right in Austin. If bold espresso has whetted your appetite, swing by any number of Austin’s many farmers’ markets: Sustainable Food Center hosts local growers four times a week in different locations across the city. Fresh-picked ingredients can be found around every corner in Austin, including at Swift’s Attic, a farm-to-table restaurant known for its stellar cuisine.

More than just irresistible eats, Austin will give you hundreds of reasons to run and jump. Zilker Park is a cannot-miss spot that offers visitors 351 acres of fun. Botanical gardens, hiking trails, and a natural spring swimming pool will tempt even the laziest person to dive right in. But save some energy for CrossFit Central. This gym was recently named one of the top ten best CrossFit gyms in the US by Men’s Fitness. Get pumped up as you train with the best in a city that’s sure to turn your head.
