Welcome, out-of-towners. You’ve picked up your badge, stocked your bag full of gear and are ready to hit South by Southwest. There’s just one more thing to do: Make sure you know how to get around Austin like a local.
Thanks to redditor u/SemiHollowCarrot for posting this PSA to help make sure you don’t fall prey to any of Austin’s confusing street names. Happy SXSW-ing!
(Above: Street sign helpfully points out that Loop 1 and Loop 360 don’t, in fact, loop.)
SXSW visitors can get across Austin on Loop 360 (also known as Capital of Texas Highway) – just don’t expect it to actually loop around the city.
