Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Take a break from the city and head to Old Tunnel State Park and Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site. Museum-lovers will get to explore Pioneer Museum Complex and Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site. Change things up with these side-trips from Austin: Hamilton Pool Preserve (in Dripping Springs), Longhorn Cavern State Park (in Burnet) and Hye (William Chris Vineyards & Garrison Brothers Distillery). There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Becker Vineyards (Winery), pause for some serene contemplation at St. Mary's Catholic Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden, and brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of the Pacific War.

For maps, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Austin day trip site .

In August, daytime highs in Austin are 98°F, while nighttime lows are 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
