    If you’re an Austin local, please share your expertise by suggesting nearby restaurants, bars, or things to see or do. Provide as much information as you can: Distance from the convention venue, price range, URL, and what you like about a place are particularly useful. (We’re starting with eater.com’s “38 Essential Austin Restaurants” and the Austin Chronicle’s “First Plates: 100 Restaurants Defining Austin Dining Now.”)

    Hi all,

    I created a map for Austin downtown area. In the map, you will find places for food and drinks near Austin Convention Center, and the convention hotels. I also included a layer for nearby B-cycle stations and some of the good restaurants in the downtown area.

    For those of you who would like to learn more about Austin, here is a comprehensive Austin guide in the form of an interactive magazine that Austin Convention Center created.
