The city is full of vibrant energy; there’s always somewhere to go, something to do and some place to eat! There is a reason Austin has become one of the fastest growing cities in the US. 

Wary of planning a trip amongst COVID-19? Austin has been taking the proper precautions to keep the city safe. Also, airlines such as American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta and Southwest Airlines are waiving change fees until December 31, 2020. 

Wondering what to do in Austin? Shop at the cute boutiques on South Congress Street, enjoy a lively night out on Sixth Street where more than eighty bars line the street or have a neighborhood experience by visiting Rainey Street’s bars that have their own personality nested inside converted historic homes, many of the bungalow style.

If you’re not interested in spending money there are a multitude of free options for you to experience.  See the 1.5 million bats that emerge underneath the South Congress Bridge every evening at sunset, lounge and relax at Zilker Park, one of the largest parks in Austin, or go hiking on the Walnut Creek Trail or St. Edwards Park.

Make sure you stop and fill your belly at the countless culinary options that fill Austin’s streets. Austin takes eating and drinking very seriously and it’s a foodies’ haven! It’s world famous for barbecue and Tex-Mex and we can all thank Austin for inventing the breakfast taco! Thirsty? Austin boasts a robust craft beer scene, with over 50 microbreweries in the metro area.

AGD2021 is being held at the Austin Convention Center which is walking distance to numerous fun activities.  If you don’t feel like walking, consider Uber, Lyft or other ridesharing options or check out Austin’s BCycle to pick up and drop off bikes all around the city. If you are more interested in taking public transportation, The Capital Metro system operates all around the city. You can get to and from the airport by route 100 or 350, which runs every 30 minutes between 6 A.M.-11 P.M. 

Register for AGD2021 and start planning your Austin trip today.

In the event that AGD2021 is cancelled by AGD, full registration and course fees will be returned to attendees.
