Austin is known for museums, nightlife, nature, parks, and trails. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the landmark architecture of State Capitol, take in the natural beauty of Barton Springs Pool, explore and take pictures at Circuit of The Americas, and contemplate the long history of The Driskill Bar.

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.

Keep things going the next day: steep yourself in history at The Alamo, then pause for some serene contemplation at San Fernando Cathedral, and then shop like a local with The San Antonio River Walk.
