Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Splashway Waterpark and Waterskiing & Jetskiing. Get out of town with these interesting Austin side-trips: New Braunfels (Landa Park & Comal River), SeaWorld San Antonio (in San Antonio) and Longhorn Cavern State Park (in Burnet). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Texas State Capitol, take in the views from Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, contemplate the waterfront views at Town Lake, and take in the natural beauty of Barton Springs Pool.

To see traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Austin day trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 98°F in August, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
