They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That probably has something to do with the success of instagram. Below are a list of 25 Austin stops that you most likely have instagrammed or if your travels take you there, you will. Use this guide as a way to play tourist in your own town. Tag me in your pictures so that I can see them (remember I can only see your picture if you have a public profile)!

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
