Austin, Texas is naturally beautiful, with stunning landscapes, beautiful natural pools and historical museums, it is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in America. However, it can sometimes be underrated. Cities like New Orleans, Miami, New York, Los Angeles, take the cake when it comes to tourism interest and hype.

Austin, Texas is in my opinion not hyped enough but there are some influencers right now who are taking the pain (and pleasure) of showing the world just how beautiful the city is and shining it in the best light. So, if you want to explore Austin or want to feel like a proud Austin Native, these are people you should be looking out for and enjoying their content.
