Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Change things up with a short trip to Shady Oaks Gun Range in Cedar Park (about 32 minutes away). There's lots more to do: get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol, hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, get engrossed in the history at LBJ Presidential Library, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Mount Bonnell.

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.

There's much more to do: trek along San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral, steep yourself in history at The Guenther House Museum, and find something for the whole family at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
