Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Get in touch with nature at Natural Bridge Caverns and Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats. The Alamo and Mission San Jose are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Austin: Water 2 Wine (in New Braunfels), San Antonio (The San Antonio River Walk, La Villita Historic Arts Village, & more) and National Museum of the Pacific War (in Fredericksburg). The adventure continues: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Garrison Brothers Distillery, take an in-depth tour of LBJ Presidential Library, trek along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, and admire the landmark architecture of The Driskill.

To find where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Austin online driving holiday planner .

December in Austin sees daily highs of 64°F and lows of 45°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
