Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Fri): tour the pleasant surroundings at Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, then take an in-depth tour of Bullock Texas State History Museum, and then steep yourself in history at Texas State Capitol. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the activities along Barton Springs Pool, walk around Zilker Metropolitan Park, take some stellar pictures from Mount Bonnell, then stop by Wild About Music, and finally contemplate the long history of The Driskill.
