Watch first-person accounts of what it’s like living in Texas, including tips, pros, cons and more.

  • Austin

    Hi guys, Misty here. I just got back from an awesome trip to Austin Texas. I’d never been to Texas before so today is that are being disturbed are talking about anything entertainment only gonna talk about what to do in Austin.Texas. Three main things. The food, the town and the live music. The town is knowing that live in the capital the world for the country. I’m not sure which one but before we get to that. First of all the food, a few things you need to know. of course in Texas so they’re known for the barbecue I went to Starbucks which is famous in Austin even Obama went there and you know I wasn’t impressed with the food but I was impressed with the music venue they have a downstairs and then apparently behind the restaurant is also a huge venue where you can see live music so probably better for that and a barbecue also franken’s barbecues really popular biggest in life like two hours and people

    are selling chairs outside to make money so the other chair to sit in while you wait me why would you want to wait to our survival you when you’re on vacation now that just doesn’t make any sense to me. What is greatest Salt Lake, amazing phenomena barbecue had chopped brisket on white bread and it was amazing the barbecue sauce is world renowned too but the only problem with that is the address 30 minutes outside the city Boston to get to it.

    Next the tax max basically texas has amazing Mexican food with their own flair on a huge thing is breakfast tacos and you can get that a lot of food trucks around the city. another super popular thing are these food trucks like they love having is casual theme where it’s like a almost a trailer park for like a junk yard with food trucks in it but the food is actually really good so they told me for you. this casual dirty environment outside great breakfast burritos what’s up tortillas and top post the whole freaking weekend also this thing called megan’s and my GaAs is super popular it’s basically like Mexican scrambled eggs with like tomatoes and stuff in there but they also put in little bit some tortilla in the eggs and it’s cooked into their so ballast her already tasty to. now for the town of course you gotta go to 6th Street that’s basically all historic downtown Street, filled with tons of bars and restaurants and that’s where you gonna find a lot of the live music but mostly it’s now called dirty sex it’s a little college of have bars and weirdness so that’s great to see if you got to experience it but to hang out I prefer West 6 which is part of six street where its in newly developed cool slightly more hipster bars and restaurants great food great atmosphere

    I think I want one called the dogwood really open vie and I liked that a lot also please call Benji’s looked awesome another part time that you have to go to is Sal congress retro below the river so just slightly down from six Street and cool ice cream shops pizza parlors unique food and water snack bar which I highly recommend else went to South Congress Cafe highly recommend that as well and add carrot cake French toast with cream cheese syrup well yet so South Congress is a must see so retro cool that I think really defines Austin another part out as just going to if he wants and nightlife that is unique is Rainey Street where the turn a bunch of houses into parsley when there one night and it was a lot of fun good crowds and unique places

    I love going out and feeling like a mad house party love that and don’t forget that the University of Texas in Austin is right in the town so that they have a home game at the time that you’re there I would highly suggest going till getting people are very welcoming you don’t really need to know you want to go tailgating is kinda cool just put on some burn or injure and some white those in the school’s colors the Longhorns go Longhorns and just walk up and people pretty friendly can try some other did barbecue maybe play some cornhole drink a beer get a free beer koozie and it’s a good in Texas time I know there’s not many people have accents and austin’s so yeah lastly check out the live music get a local newspaper somewhere and that has all the listings for the music I think that the best way to find some and no they don’t really have much during the day so mostly at night time I made a mistake trying to find live music during the day not that common and beware the pedicabs cost more than the regular cabs alright a all I got for you today tell you if I love my review if you live in Austin you hate this review sorry hopefully to all you tourists and travelers out there hope that was helpful.

  • Downtown Dallas

    Downtown Dallas
    Hi guys!

    This is Jadu Witch, and today I’m going to take you on a journey downtown Dallas. This is the area where I actually live, um; this is going to be my neighbourhood and already is my neighbourhood.

    So, I’m really enjoying myself living downtown because there is so much to do and so much to see downtown. Um, the area that I live in is considered a not only financial area and financial district of Dallas, Texas but is also considered an arts district.

    Downtown we have; art galleries, theatres, museums, a lot of culture is going on downtown Dallas, not to mention we have such magnificent, beautiful tall buildings. It just really looks like… reminds me of Manhattan in New York City where I lived for the past 16 years.

    As a matter of fact, I call downtown Dallas, the new Manhattan. That’s kind of like my inside joke kind of thing, between me and my husband. I call it the new Manhattan because it does look like Manhattan and it has that same feel as Manhattan.

    So, here you guys can see, really wide spread streets, a lot of cars, well not that many cars as you would see in New York City, of course the population of Dallas is much smaller than the population of New York but if you really look at it, it really does have the same feel as New York City.

    For those of you who live in large cities you know what I’m talking about, it’s the tall glass shiny buildings and sky scrapers that reach out into the skies.

    It’s just wide streets and little oasis with plazas with water, waterfalls or fountains sorry, I lost my words here.

    But really it’s large public areas and office buildings and residential areas as well. So, basically I live in one of those really tall buildings and we have a rooftop swimming pool and the gym in the bottom of the building. So, it’s just a very basic kind of urban lifestyle that I get living here and I’m really enjoying it so far.

    I really love walking around even though it’s hot, but even the heat doesn’t feel too terrible here. Just look at those beautiful tall buildings, its amazing! It’s just so spectacular! Look at that eye it looks really cool and very artsy.

    We have also transportation here such as; buses and we also have dart train that I haven’t really used yet. I don’t really know how to get around that much, so far I’m just walking around and looking at stuff around me and learning what it is that I have around my apartment building, and here not too far from where I live, we have this beautiful little oasis of little fountains of water and you can come here at any time and enjoy the sound of water, the birds are around everywhere, it’s really relaxing little place where you can just come and enjoy yourself and get away from the summer heat that we have right now.

    So, you guys, I hope you really enjoyed this video.

    I’m sorry I’ve kind of been all over the place with my words because I haven’t scripted this video but thank you, thank you so much for watching! And please comment and I hope you find that my new lifestyle is interesting and I hope you like this video despite the lack of my concentration.

    But thank you so much for watching again!

    I love you all! And sending you all my blessings, blessed be.

    This was your, Jadu Witch.
