About Austin, Texas, and its Surroundings
Austin Texas just rolls off the tongue because it's one of those cities that form an intrinsic part of North American culture. It was originally a settlement named Waterloo, populated by immigrants from Germany, Sweden and Mexico. However periods of accelerated growth made it the renamed state capital in 1839. By 1883, Austin had become a college town with the founding of the University of Texas at Austin.
The city has a real buzz and is known as the "Live Music Capital of the World®". There is live music from the terminal at Austin's airport to everywhere in Austin. Musicians play in everything from grocery stores (Central Market, Whole Foods) to city council meetings. Name a music legend and you'll be hard pushed to find one who hasn't performed live in Austin.
Festivals and events include Blues on the Green series, Austin City Limits, South by Southwest, Pachanga Latino Musical Festival, Urban Music Festival, Fun, Fun, Fun Fest, Chaos in Texas and many more.
We suggest that if you are a visitor to Austin, you should arrange to taste the sights, delights and sounds of Austin either before or after your CELTA course as you will not have time during the course to enjoy the tantalizing amount of things to see and do here.
