Austin IG Accounts You Need To Follow
If you live in Austin, you know there’s always something going on. From grand openings and live music to pop-up restaurants, how are you meant to keep up with everything? Well, let us introduce you the magical world of Austin-based Instagram accounts. These wonderful accounts are perfect to keep you updated on all the happenings around town, from pop-up restaurants to comedy shows! Here are five of our must-follow accounts so you never miss Austin’s best events again.
When Where What’s clean and classic blue aesthetic is one you can’t miss. As the name suggests, When Where What lets you know three things: when something is, where it is, and what it is. Could you ask for anything else? They post everything you could need to know event-wise. Some recurring posts include awesome weekend-trip giveaways, updates on where to get $1 margs (Hint: Doc’s Backyard Grill, every Monday), and spreadsheets on vaccine locations. Even if you decide not to follow When Where What, I can guarantee at least one of your friends will DM you one of their posts and say “We gotta go!!” so you might as well be ahead of the game and give them a follow.
Do512 describes themselves as the “best place to find out about all the great stuff happening around Austin”, and we’d have to agree. They’re awesome to keep you posted on all the new restaurant drops around town and their Do512 Lounge Sessions. What’s awesome about Do512 is their beautifully organized Linktree. The tabs include links to specific activities to do based on what you’re looking for, like Do512 Family, Gay Do512, and Do Texas, for when you need a little time away from Austin. Their website is a great resource to learn about all things Austin; check them out!
365 Things Austin is the gift that never stops giving — they post something new to do every day! When you follow them, you’ll get updates catered to the second you’re viewing their page. They post about your favorite restaurant’s new special, every Happy Hour known to man, and sick zipline giveaways, one day at a time. If you’re looking to learn about something specific, check out their IG Highlights. You can see their favorite wedding venues, day trips, hikes, and so much more just from a click of a story!
