The Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau is offering travelers a free visitors guide by mail. Visitors can request the printed guide at the ACVB website.

The guide is ideal for visitors that are planning a trip to the city, event planners and even new residents, who want to make the most of their new home.

Though much of the information is available on the official ACVB website and other online city guides, many travelers find comfort in having the information in a printed form. The guide covers the city's most popular restaurants, bars, shops and other attractions. It includes a detailed events calendar that is useful for travelers looking for the ideal time to visit the city. There are also descriptions of the city's outdoor attractions, including Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park, Lake Travis, the Texas State Capitol Building, Barton Springs and McKinney Falls Park.

Given the city's moniker "Live Music Capital of the World," the guide also offers extensive coverage of Austin's music scene, including top venues, tips for seeing live shows, ticketing information and more.
