A Day in Classic Austin: Photo Essay

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Texas chapter.

My hometown of Austin has changed and grown in so many ways over the past thirty years. Last year, I decided I wanted to capture classic landmarks that have been in Austin from the beginning! We begin at the infamous Greetings From Austin Mural on South first and make our way around central Austin, ending at the tiniest bar in Texas for a nightcap!
