Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Alamo and Texas State Capitol. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mission San Jose and King William Historic District. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Austin: San Antonio (McNay Art Museum, The San Antonio River Walk, & more), Barn Pottery (in New Braunfels) and Fredericksburg (National Museum of the Pacific War & Wine Tours & Tastings). There's still lots to do: hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, snap pictures at Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, admire the natural beauty at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Popular historic sites such as French Quarter and Garden District are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Chalmette National Historical Park and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Nottoway Plantation in White Castle--about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, stroll through New Orleans City Park, take a stroll through Royal Street, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.
