We had an opportunity for a quick trip to Austin a few weeks ago. Austin is one of my favorite places to visit, and from an art and culture perspective, it's hard to beat. I love how much public/permanent art the city has on display, and Austin museums and Austin galleries have consistently been interesting and high-quality.

Austin Weekend Getaway
The Contemporary Austin - Laguna Gloria , Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Garden, is always a favorite. Situated along the Colorado River, the art seems to rise out of a diverse ecosystem of woodlands, wildflowers and meadows. It feels magical, and every piece is encountered with a sense of discovery and anticipation of what might be around the next corner, or behind the next tree.
