Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Bullock Texas State History Museum and LBJ Texas White House. Grape Creek Vineyards on Main and Thinkery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Fredericksburg (Pioneer Museum & Cross Mountain Vineyards) and Hamilton Pool Preserve (in Dripping Springs). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center, take a stroll through SoCo District, brush up on your military savvy at Texas Military Forces Museum, and get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol.
