Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
The Alamo and Mission San Jose will appeal to history buffs. Let the collections at SeaWorld San Antonio and Natural Bridge Caverns capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Austin side-trips: San Antonio (McNay Art Museum, Mission Espada, & more), Old Blanco County Courthouse (in Blanco) and Barn Pottery (in New Braunfels). There's more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sitagu Buddha Vihara and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Jester King Brewery.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Austin vacation builder tool .

In August, daily temperatures in Austin can reach 98°F, while at night they dip to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
