Austin

Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Tue): take in nature's colorful creations at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, then pause for some photo ops at Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue, and finally ponder the world of politics at Texas State Capitol. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the views from Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, then examine the collection at LBJ Presidential Library, then take an in-depth tour of Bullock Texas State History Museum, and finally admire the landmark architecture of The Driskill.
