South by Southwest 2017 starts in fewer than 48 hrs. YES, 48 hrs! I know this because I set an countdown timer as to when I need to leave the city.
Like all Austinites, I have a love/hate relationship with SXSW. It’s so great and so terrible at the same time, particularly if you have any sort of need to cross the river on a regular basis (like, say, driving to and from work every day). I get so excited when it’s coming and then after approximately 30 minutes of festivities I am OVER IT. And then there’s still 10 more days left.
In honor of this year’s SXSW, here’s a list of awesome road trip destinations out of Austin.
If you’re one of the monsters who actually enjoys the conference come festival, all the fixings are at sxsw.com.
