About McKinney Falls State Park This beautiful state park is located just south of Austin city center, and west of the Austin Bergstrom International Airport.

Choosing the Inn on the Square I did a decent amount of research before I settled on the Inn on the Square in Keswick. It was the recommended accommodation for an event I was attending, so I had a strong bias towards this particular inn. I always use TripAdvisor for hotel reviews and FourSquare for restaurant […]
