Welcome To Austin! A Guide To ATX For New Friends And Family

Howdy, stranger — and welcome to Austin! We’re excited to have your family join the eclectic community that makes up our great town. We may be a large city (and growing larger by the second), but Austin still manages to feel like a fairly close-knit community, and we hope you love it just as much as we do.

Welcome to Austin

Free Fun In Austin continues to highlight Austin area locations and activities that may not be available at this time. We encourage you to take all safety measures to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is our hope that the stories and features on this site will help inform your plans in the future.

To help you start out on the right foot we’ve created this Welcome to Austin guide that you can access online or print to keep with you as you explore the city streets. Sure, you could go it on your own, but keep in mind that in Austin we do things a bit on the weird side. Our streets have funny pronunciations, tacos and queso make up one of our five food groups, and people watching here is practically an Olympic sport.

So jump right in and you’ll be saying “y’all” and packing your bag for a music festival in no time! We’ve embedded the guide below, but if for some reason it’s not showing up you can always find it right here.
