Austin

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Appreciate the collections at Texas Military Forces Museum and Battle For Texas: The Experience. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Thinkery and Pioneer Museum Complex. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Austin: Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site (in Stonewall), Inks Lake State Park (in Burnet) and Hamilton Pool Preserve (in Dripping Springs). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Bullock Texas State History Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Barton Springs Pool, hike along Jacob's Well Natural Area, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

For maps, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Austin trip planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 98°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
