Austin is famous for its street art – or murals, as Austinites call them. The murals are colourful and everywhere.
Also famous are the many food trucks. I’d not heard of the term until I went to Austin. They’re just motorized vehicles, such as vans, equipped to make and sell food. I suppose the British ice cream van can be considered a food truck but the trucks exist all over the world.
In Austin, you could buy almost any sort of food you wanted from the food trucks: from Mexican, Chinese, and Indian to pizzas and burgers.
Lots of the food trucks are concentrated around Rainer Street.
