Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Urban Axes Austin and Old Jail Museum. Explore Austin's surroundings by going to Palmetto State Park (in Gonzales), Zedler Mill (in Luling) and Colorado Bend State Park (in Bend). There's lots more to do: zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, get your game on at TopGolf Austin, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Mary's Cathedral.

In September, daytime highs in Austin are 93°F, while nighttime lows are 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
