For the second year in a row, our readers have picked the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport as the best place to get souvenirs. No kidding: The airport itself screams Austin from the Barbara Jordan Passenger Terminal's rafters with its live music stage, local food outlets (Amy's Ice Cream, Wok & Roll, the Salt Lick ... ), and retail featuring Austin and Texas themed T-shirts, fridge magnets, food stuffs, shot glasses, and the like. Nothing says "Wish you were here," and "Y'all come back now, y'hear?!" quite like our beloved airport.
