Austin, Texas. Home of the Texas Longhorns (GO HORNS!), great Texas BBQ (notably Saltlick) and of course, more live music than you could ever possibly see. But one of the most famous attractions that Austin has to offer is the downtown district that boasts a thriving nightlife scene. Hop downtown to a local watering hole and you will feel right at home in Austin.

Today’s infographic highlights one of the most popular night time destinations in our fair city, 6th street. Any given Friday and Saturday night, the streets are overrun with people wanting to have a good time. So many people that they have to shut the streets down. That’s right, you are free to wander up and down the streets in utter chaos. Bars are also open throughout the week, with great deals and specials to entice you to stop by for a drink (as if we need enticing!).

If you have never been, it may be an overwhelming experience to simply choose a bar. Every bar is bustling, pulsing and filled with decently priced drinks, so use this cheat sheet if you find yourself in our neck of the woods. Head down to Austin, Texas and experience 6th street for yourself. We would love to have you! [Via]

Christmas Cruises [Infographic]

The image of Christmas probably brings up a slightly different image for all of those who celebrate the holiday. For many it involves the standards: going back home to be with friends and family, Christmas trees, large meals, sweaters, fireplaces, the list goes on. These traditions are well-known and enjoyed, but some people like to change up their yuletide conventions and head for places a little more…tropical.

Everyone knows Christmas comes a little earlier every year, so today’s infographic from Gadling.com outlines some of the most popular destinations and activities for Christmas cruises. The cruises combine the environmental comforts of the ocean and tropical destinations with the standard traditions of Christmas. For passengers with children, there is a Santa Claus who comes to visit and passengers are usually given gifts.

For more information on an alternative method to celebrate Christmas, refer to the infographic below. [Via]

The Art and Science of S’mores [infographic]

You should be totally jealous. “Why?”, you ask. Let me lay it out for ya. I was fortunate enough to go camping this weekend. Everyone knows camping is the greatest and that there are some requirements for your nighttime to be the right time: 1) fire, 2) starlight, and 3) a marshmallow heating up just right in order to fulfill its duty in between graham and chocolate. To make your envy of me reach an all time high, I have one of these magnificent combinations of cocoa, gluten, and sugar in my belly. Daaaaaaaaang—that is impressive.

There really is something magical about s’mores. Am I right, or am I right? No matter your marshmallow cooking style, when you’re done with your first, it will be hard not to desire more of that gooey goodness. As if s’mores aren’t hard enough to resist, camping in and of it self is one of the most relaxing things. It is so refreshing to get back in touch with nature and escape from our ecologically large footprint lifestyles. It is difficult to remind ourselves of the animals’ habitats we should be conserving while it is important to remember that we are not the only creatures out there.

We affect so much with our lifestyle here in the U.S. It is up to us to live as one with the world around us. Go camping and eat s’mores. [via]

2012′s Best Days for Holiday Shopping [infographic]

Yeah that’s right, I’m doing it. I’m posting a Christmas infographic before Thanksgiving. I don’t even care. You gotta deal with it. Today’s graphic shows the best days to shop online for gadgets and gifts. With the average american spending 700 dollars on presents, saving a few bucks here and there can really add up.

I know you have heard of the Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays, but did you know about Small Business Saturday? I didn’t, but it seems the day after Black Friday, the 24th, 68 out of 100 dollars spent on that day go to small businesses. That’s awesome.

There is one problem I have with the the so-called ‘Free Shipping Day’. Even though over 1700 businesses have agreed to have free shipping on December 17th, I know for a fact they will be raising their prices to cover the shipping costs. Shipping anything on Christmas Eve will cost a fortune – this Free Shipping Day is a myth.

Remember not to buy any books, movies or music until after the 25th. These items get inflated before the big day, but tend to drop back to a reasonable cost after St. Nick comes to visit. [Via]

So I’ve been on this stupid diet in hopes of dropping a few pounds, but after reading this infographic, I ditched it and bought myself a candy bar. All the talk about chocolate, and caramel with nuts,  really made me crave some sugar. So I’m sorry in advance if this infographic inspires you to cheat on you diet also.

Today’s infographic is actually really interesting, it gives you 10 facts about your most favorite snacks. Who would have known that Pringles aren’t potato chips?! Mind. Blown. I was also really impressed with the pop rock information. I’v always wondered how those little things worked. Enjoy today’s infographic, perhaps you can use the information to impress your friends or win your next trivia game. [via]
