Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Explore Austin's surroundings by going to Fredericksburg (Grape Creek Vineyards on Main & National Museum of the Pacific War), Barn Pottery (in New Braunfels) and San Antonio (The Alamo, The San Antonio River Walk, & more). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Texas State Capitol, explore the world behind art at Elisabet Ney Museum, get engrossed in the history at Bullock Texas State History Museum, and hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail.
