Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Your day by day itinerary now includes McKinney Falls State Park as well as The Escape Game Austin. Get some historical perspective at The Alamo and Texas State Capitol. Step out of the city life by going to Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail and Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats. Change things up with a short trip to McNay Art Museum in San Antonio (about 1h 30 min away). The adventure continues: take in the natural beauty of Barton Springs Pool and steep yourself in history at The Driskill.
