Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mission Trail and San Antonio Western Shooting. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Austin: San Antonio (Natural Bridge Caverns, Briscoe Western Art Museum, & more), Gonzales (Texas Heroes Square & Old Jail Museum) and Garrison Brothers Distillery (in Hye). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Texas State Capitol, learn insider's secrets on a distillery tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center, and examine the collection at Dick's Classic Garage.

To find where to stay, photos, maps, and more tourist information, read our Austin tour itinerary builder site .

In December, daily temperatures in Austin can reach 64°F, while at night they dip to 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
