Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Barton Springs Pool and SeaWorld San Antonio. You'll explore and learn at Natural Bridge Caverns and Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Austin: New Braunfels (Barn Pottery & Schlitterbahn Waterpark New Braunfels), National Museum of the Pacific War (in Fredericksburg) and San Antonio (San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral, The Alamo, & more). Next up on the itinerary: ponder the world of politics at Texas State Capitol, get great views at Mount Bonnell, pause for some photo ops at Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue, and admire the landmark architecture of Caldwell County Courthouse.

For ratings, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Austin day trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 98°F in July, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
