Not only is Austin the state capital of Texas, it’s also the “Live Music Capital of the World”! With countless music venues and as host of the South by Southwest festival, it’s no wonder that both up-and-coming and established acts play here. The city loves its food trucks, so much so that food truck trailer parks are a pretty regular sight (and we can wrangle a few together for you, too!) If you’re looking for something elegant, no place wows like The Driskill—the glamorous crown jewel of Texas that’s welcomed the likes of Bill Clinton, Bob Dylan, and Sandra Bullock.
Just 80 miles down the road is the fine city of San Antonio. A vibrant Southwestern community rich in history, it was founded in 1718 as a Spanish mission but has evolved to become a treasured cultural hotspot. Great Tex-Mex food, a thriving music scene, the historic Alamo, and the world-famous Riverwalk are just a few things that make this destination a fabulous location to host an event. The hospitality? It’s almost as big as the restaurant portions!
Whether your guests want to strap on some boots or their most stylish stilettos, Hello! Texas will show them everything these eccentric and enchanting cities have to offer. Just say Hello!.
