Limited to 14 cool women.
NextTribe was born and raised in Austin, Texas, one of the most happening cities in the country whose motto is Keep Austin Weird. So we know this town, and we are happy to show our NextTribers from across the country how to do the city right. We’ll take you behind the tourist facade, deep into the heart of what makes this place so fascinating, so dynamic. You’ll meet local women who are creating exciting lives here and shaping the culture. We’ll stay four nights at the cheeky Austin Motel, which is ideally located on South Congress, which gave rise to the tagline, “So Close but So Far Out.”
