City Guide: Camila Alves on Austin, Texas

April 14, 2016

We are heading to Austin, Texas this week and couldn’t think of a better tour guide than Austin resident and co-founder of the just keep livin foundation, Camila Alves McConaughey. Camila and her husband Matthew have done amazing work empowering high school students through their organization and we are honored to partner with them on a fashion show during the star-studded Mack, Jack & McConaughey charity event in Austin.

If you’re heading to Austin be sure to take a copy of this city guide with you!

What do you love most about Austin?

The fact that everyone has their own identity. It is the most liberal city in a conservative state. It is the perfect combination of structure and creative artists, and I'm not even mentioning the amazing food, music, and scenery.

Describe the city in three words:

Structure, Eclectic, Inspiring


My favorite hotel is the Saint Cecilia.
112 Academy Drive, Austin, Texas 78704


Tourist Spot You Love to Visit: Going canoeing out of Zilker Park.

Best Souvenir: The great Texas t-shirts from the airport.


Grab a cocktail at… the Uchi bar because you're waiting for the best sushi in the world.
