Like the locals: Austin

Austin is known as the tech-hub of the south, infamous for its juicy barbecued ribs and steak, and a mecca for country music, blues and rock. But did you know that there's another side to this Texan city? And it's one that only the locals know. 

Ellen, a born-and-bred Austinite, is showing us the city her way. But she's not taking us to the famous "I love you so much" sign or South by Southwest. From authentic Tex-Mex food joints to the picturesque Lady Bird Lake, here are all the must-see gems Austin has to offer. Today, we're touring Austin like a local.

Find out all of Austin's most coveted spots in this week's episode!
