default's Guide to Austin

Welcome to Camarilla territory Austin, Texas the capitol of Texas and the home of the University of Texas Longhorns. Alot of people like to call Austin the live music capitol of the world. My personal response to that is that more live music doesn't mean better live music.

Austin has a bus system that will take you to basically any area within the city limits that you would like to go and even to some small towns outside of Austin. I-35 is the main highway here, it runs north and south straight through downtown. Austin has a population of about five hundred thousand people. A majority of the population being University of Texas students most of which leave town at the end of the school year in the summer.

Austin has a thriving computer industry comparable to California's Silicon Valley. Most of the night life can be found on sixth street downtown which is blocked off to traffic on Friday and Saturday due to the huge crowd. Most of the popular clubs here are either alternative or techno clubs but you can pretty much find a night spot for every scene around here.

Most of the people here are really laid back. The rich people live north, the poor live east and the students mostly live central. Being so close to Mexico, a majority of the population is Mexican.

Before I close, I'd like to add one more interesting fact. Most of the year a bunch of Mexican freetail bats live under the Town Lake Bridge on Congress Avenue. They fly around the city at night and sleep under the bridge during the day. They migrate south to Mexico during the winter. There's a rumor going around that some of these bats are actually Sabbat Gangrel spies. The troublesome thing to the Camarilla about that possability is that openly disposing of the bats would be a crime. Mexican freetail bats are endangered!
