Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Blue Bell Creameries and Thinkery. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site and Pioneer Museum Complex. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Austin: Gonzales (Old Jail Museum & Gonzales Memorial Museum), Grape Creek Vineyards on Main (in Fredericksburg) and Comforts (in Round Top). And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at Texas Military Forces Museum, examine the collection at South Austin Museum of Popular Culture, stroll the grounds of Texas State Cemetery, and explore the world behind art at Elisabet Ney Museum.

In December, daily temperatures in Austin can reach 64°F, while at night they dip to 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
