Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
You'll explore and learn at Blue Bell Creameries and The Alamo. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site and The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden. Get out of town with these interesting Austin side-trips: Johnson City (Texcetera & Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site), Fredericksburg (Pioneer Museum Complex, National Museum of the Pacific War, & more) and The Museum of Western Art (in Kerrville). And it doesn't end there: admire the architecture and history at Mission San Jose, explore the world behind art at San Antonio Museum of Art, immerse yourself in nature at Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site, and get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol.

In February, daily temperatures in Austin can reach 68°F, while at night they dip to 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
