Just Hit Send is here to make your life easy; our city guides are a curated experience for the perfect weekend in a new city. With up-to-date recommendations for 2021
A little background:
Being a Texas-based company, we've looked locally for inspiration since day one in 2016; finding some of our original best-selling & most unique products & brands in Austin, TX when they were still under the radar, but ahead of their time in trends - something Austin is known for!
Fast-forward & Austin has transformed from a small, eclectic town to a booming metropolis; on the cutting edge of trends but packed with all of its original charm!
We highly recommend spending a weekend in Austin - and in Just Hit Send fashion we’re here to make it as seamless as possible. So bookmark this guide for an unforgettable trip down South!:
Striking the perfect balance between luxury & classic southern comfort! Stop for a cocktail in their bustling bar with the after-work crowd, or sip margaritas by the Tulum-inspired poolside. Trust us!

Pick an evening to grab a mezcal margarita & perch up at this rooftop bar with birds-eye views of Ladybird lake to watch the nightly sunset show: Bats exiting their “cave” under Congress bridge! (Most nights around sundown.)
