No city is perfect, but if we're just talking about looks, Austin—with its lush green nature spots and lakes—is pretty spectacular. Here's a look at what makes Austin the perfect place to "staycation."
In the video, you'll go through Red Bud Isle, the Hill Country, Pace Bend Park, Westlake Hills, Tom Miller Dam, Zilker Park, Sahm Hill, Mueller Lake, St. Edwards University, Lady Bird Lake, Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, The Oasis, Lake Travis, Lake Austin, Pennybacker Bridge, the Barton Creek greenbelt, Sculpture Falls, Roy G. Guerrero Park, Longhorn Dam and, finally, downtown.
All year round, Austin has something to offer. And even in these trying times, when people can't gather for Blues on the Greens in Zilker Park and other summer events, at least you can always catch a great sunset wherever you are in Austin.

The Texas Department of State Health Services will allocate 332,750 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to 212 providers this week, with the bulk assigned to hub providers that are focused on widespread community distribution events. Six of those providers are in Travis County.
With the latest allocation of 16,450 sent to Travis County this week, the county will have received 104,275 doses of the vaccine. Local public health officials estimate that there are 285,000 area residents who fall in the 1A and 1B priority groups, meaning that around 37% of them should have access to doses seven weeks into the rollout process.

Californian who wrote viral op-ed attacking Austin life tells Austonia he 'didn't include the positive stuff'
The California exodus has made headlines for several years now, and even more recently, with thousands of West Coasters seeking tax relief, less-expensive real estate and a simpler lifestyle in Texas' capital city.
