3 Grab lunch at the Hyde Park Bar & Grill, and don’t miss the French fries.

5 Head across the street to the University of Texas bookstore to pick up Longhorn gear.
6 Go next door to the open-air market on Guadalupe, with the hippies selling beads, bongs and more, to grab some funky jewelry for your 14-year-old niece.
7 Continue your campus/Guadalupe shopping tour with a stop at Toy Joy and Buffalo Exchange—and plan to stay a while at both to dig for goodies.
8 Enjoy delicious deli food at Wheatsville Co-op on Guadalupe for an easy, low-stress dinner.
9 Head to Sixth Street to wander the streets like a college student, going in and out of clubs and bars when you hear music you like.
