Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Take a break from the city and head to Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats and Barton Springs Pool. Do some cultural sightseeing at Texas State Capitol and Bullock Texas State History Museum. There's lots more to do: hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, take in nature's colorful creations at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, stop by Waterloo Records, and identify plant and animal life at Austin Nature & Science Center.

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
Get in touch with nature at The San Antonio River Walk and Natural Bridge Caverns. Get a sense of the local culture at Mission San Jose and Mission Concepcion. Change things up with a short trip to National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg (about 1h 25 min away). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of The Alamo, appreciate the extensive heritage of King William Historic District, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral, and admire the architecture and history at Mission Espada.

For other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, read San Antonio sightseeing planner.

You can drive from Austin to San Antonio in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In March, plan for daily highs up to 76°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
