How did Austin get its “weird” reputation? Why is Willie Nelson worshipped like a god king? What’s the deal with all the bats? Why are locals getting into bar fights over the best breakfast taco?

Find out all these answers and more…even if some of it may shock you…on our Weird Austin City Tour.

Here at Twisted Texas we trolled the archives, pestered locals, and maybe even did a little dumpster diving to know all the weird and wild tales of Austin. And now we want to share them with you. Your Twisted guide will show you the best of everything Austin has to offer: live music, food trucks, weird people, and oh so much more.

As an added bonus, we have a local musician riding shotgun to strum up some singalong classics and a few original tunes. So if you’re ready to do a little dance and make a little love to this incredible Texas city…this is the ride for you.

We make three badass stops along the way, with chances to sample local foods, have a sweet treat (on us!), buy local craft beers, and snap cool photos of local street art and the downtown skyline.
