Austin, Texas is one of my favorite cities. I used to live and work in Austin before covid and I definitely want to go back! If you are moving or visiting there soon and looking to find fun things to do, I thought I would share my list of favorite things to do in the ATX.
Barton Springs Pool is one of the coolest places to go, especially on a hot summer day. It is a recreational outdoor swimming pool that is filled entirely with water from nearby natural springs. From what I remember, the entry fee is free.
Food Food Food… If you are visiting the ATX, you better be hungry because Texas BBQ and Tex-Mex will be waiting for you. Franklin's Barbecue is a staple but there is always a long wait. A hole in the wall spot, for some delicious brisket, is Iron Works Barbeque.
If you like going out for drinks and want a fun night out, Rainey Street and 6th Street are the places to be. From my experience 6th Street is for more of the “younger, college” crowd, while Rainey Street is more “classy”. A really cool bar on Rainey Street that is a personal favorite of mine, Container Bar.
Comment below your favorite places to visit or things to do in Austin, I would love to add them to my list.
What’s up Nicity community!
I don’t live in New York City, however I have visited several times. If you currently live in New York City or are moving there soon and want to find fun things to do, I thought I would share my list of favorite things to do in NYC!
1. NYC is one of the biggest sporting markets in the world, with some of the most iconic franchises such as the Yankees and Knicks. As a big sports fan, watching a game at Yankees Stadium or MSG is a must.
2. Chelsea Market is amazing! It’s a great place to eat, there are cuisines from all over the world. Whatever you have taste for, you can find it there. Also, there are very cool boutique shops, if you are interested in shopping.
3. A hot “tourist spot” that I recently visited was SUMMIT (photo included). In my opinion, it is better than the Empire State Building. It has the most amazing views of NYC, I highly recommend it!

If you're searching for a great restaurant to have dinner or cocktail, you won't have to look far in East Midtown. While I was in East Midtown, a diverse range of restaurants and bars cater to every whim – Japanese, French, American, and Italian cuisines are all within walking distance. Are you enjoy a restaurant with a lot of buzzes just like me? Prepare to be transported to 1950s Paris when you visit La Grenouille, an award-winning French restaurant. Try Alidoro for a hearty Italian-style sandwich if you're seeking a more minimal experience. When it comes to bars in Midtown East, the options are just as varied. I had no trouble finding the right mood with places like SNAFU Bar & Lounge, beautiful rooftop bars like Upstairs at the Kimberly, and a variety of casual pubs like Cornerstone Tavern. Among all bars and restaurants, Sakagura is my go-to place for Japanese cuisine. Sakagura serves Japanese small dishes and over 200 sakes in a cool subterranean area underneath a Midtown office building. It's been established in 1996, and it prides itself on being a pioneer of sake selection and education in New York City, with frequent events and tastings. Sakagura now offers an $85 prix-fixe menu with items such as hirame carpaccio, roasted washugyu beef, and salmon-kabocha gratin, as well as a restricted a la carte menu.
