Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Austin: San Antonio (The San Antonio River Walk, San Antonio River, & more). And it doesn't end there: get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol, pause for some photo ops at Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue, contemplate the long history of The Driskill, and snap pictures at Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats.

Fredericksburg ©
The city of Fredericksburg was settled by German immigrants in the mid-19th century, and has managed to retain its distinctly German charm.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Mon): learn about all things military at National Museum of the Pacific War, admire the natural beauty at Fischer & Wieser's Das Peach Haus, and then awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area. On the 30th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: don't miss a visit to Charles Beckendorf Gallery, relax in the rural setting at Wildseed Farms, don't miss a visit to Main Street, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Mary's Catholic Church, and finally take an unorthodox tour of Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.

To plan Fredericksburg vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
