Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Austin is known for museums, nightlife, nature, parks, and trails. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at State Capitol, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, get engrossed in the history at Bullock Texas State History Museum, and take in the views from Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats.

To see other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Austin custom trip planner.

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
