Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Head to Round Rock Premium Outlets and South Congress Avenuefor plenty of shopping. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site and William Chris Vineyards. Venture out of the city with trips to Garrison Brothers Distillery (in Hye), Willow City Loop (in Fredericksburg) and Lewis Wines (in Johnson City). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Inks Lake State Park, wander the streets of 6th Street, contemplate the long history of The Driskill, and get engrossed in the history at Bullock Texas State History Museum.

To find reviews, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Austin vacation planning tool.
