Austin

Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Shop till you drop at South Congress Avenue and The Blanton Museum of Art. You'll explore and learn at National Museum of the Pacific War and Harry Ransom Center. Get out of town with these interesting Austin side-trips: The Weimary (in Weimar) and Grape Creek Vineyards on Main (in Fredericksburg). There's much more to do: get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol, get engrossed in the history at Bullock Texas State History Museum, and take a stroll through 6th Street.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Austin trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
