Live Music Capital of the World

Venture out of the city with trips to Fredericksburg (Lost Draw Cellars, National Museum of the Pacific War, &more) and San Antonio (The Alamo, Mission San Jose, &more). There's still lots to do: take in the views from Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, stroll around Mount Bonnell, see the interesting displays at LBJ Presidential Library, and admire the striking features of Texas State Capitol.

Plan a trip to Austin easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
