2018 MCAA Midyear Meeting Ladies Program

The Real Austin Tour

By

We are very happy to present a new optional event for the MCAA Midyear Meeting. On Monday, September 24, MCAA First Lady Susie Odom will be hosting a ladies tour of downtown Austin.

A short description is below:

Discover the best of the city in just two hours! This fast-paced “bucket list” tour gives visitors a great snapshot of Austin: get dizzy gazing upward at the Capitol’s dome, indulge in decadent treats from iconic food trucks, explore cool outdoor art, snap photos at city landmarks, and check out funky neighborhoods only a local would know about. This detour is jam-packed with facts, history and trivia on everything from Whole Foods to the UT campus, and everyone from Michael Dell to Willie Nelson. By the time you’re done with this tour, you’ll be able to say you “get” Austin – the history, people, music, culture, food and what keeps it “weird.” If you’re looking for a snappy quick overview of the city, or just need to prove to the social media universe you were in Austin this is the detour for you!

Points of interest include:

  • 6th Street
  • Red River (music) District
  • Driskill Hotel
  • Capitol (15 minute tour inside)
  • University of Texas
  • HOPE Outdoor Gallery (5 minute stop)
  • Whole Foods
  • Treaty Oak
  • Lady Bird Lake
  • South Austin
  • Austin Postcard
  • South Congress
  • Food Truck Treat
  • “Bat” Bridge
The fee to attend the event is $70.00 per person. It will undoubtably be a very unique and thorough look at Austin. If you are interested in the tour, please RSVP with the number of folks you would like to attend to Beth Gaudio at 800-536-2225 by Wednesday, September 12. Beth will then reach out to you for payment for the event.

We look forward to seeing you in Austin very soon.
