Of all places, why Bastrop? My first job out of college was down there and I did not think it was a fun place. It's about 30 miles outside of Austin, which is very fun, but the road there is always extremely congested because of commuter traffic.
I seriously hope you have access to a car because there's no public transportation.
The one nice thing about the town was the state park, and that burned almost completely to the ground in 2011.
Time of year matters too. Are you going now, when it's winter? In a few months, when it's spring and pleasant? Or in summer when it's hot as balls?
>>1065687 >not knowing about interstate cigarette smuggling
Every state in the US taxes cigarettes at a different rate (places that produce them like North Carolina have ridiculously low prices, places like California attempt to snuff out smoking by making it too expensive). There's a lot of illegal money to be made in buying a shit-ton of cigarettes in one state and then going to a different state and reselling them for lower than what they cost there. Think of it as a slightly more elaborate take on the Seinfeld episode about Michigan recycling deposits.
That said, there's practically no enforcement of it unless cops are looking for a reason to be an asshole. The only reason that sign is there is because it's on the New Mexico border, and Texas doesn't want the poverty leaking in.
Bastrop itself is just kind of a small suburb, not a whole lot going on. Its right on the edge of the Hill Country, which can be very beautiful. Just head west or northwest a ways.
If you have a car and are into natural stuff, there are lots of nice places around that area, though its more fun in the summer when its warm. Try The Blue Hole or Jacob's Well. Zilker park in Austin is nice too. Bastrop state park used to be nice but it all burned down in a forest fire a couple years ago, still smells great.
If you want to party, go to Austin. 6th street for theme bars and nightclubs, 7th/red river area for music, of which there is tons in Austin. Lots of cute college girls out too.
If you are super bored, I live maybe 20 minutes from there, post if you wanna grab a beer or smoke a bowl or something.
