Austin

Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Visit Texas State Capitol and The Driskill for their historical value. Escape the urban bustle at Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats and Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Step out of Austin to go to San Marcos and see San Marcos Premium Outlets, which is approximately 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, get engrossed in the history at LBJ Presidential Library, stop by SoCo District, and get a taste of the local shopping with South Congress Avenue.

The Lone Star State
Thanks to its size and geologic features, Texas contains diverse landscapes that closely resemble both the south and southwest of the United States. Though most people associate Texas with tracts of barren land, deserts cover only about 10 percent of the state, with most of its big population centers located in areas once covered by prairies, grasslands, and forests. As you travel from one end of Texas to the other, observe the changing terrain that ranges from coastal piney woods and swamps in the east to the mountains of the west, with rolling plains and rugged hills in the center. For a bit of urban sightseeing visit some of the state's large cities such as Houston, Dallas, or Austin, or immerse yourself in the nation's history by adding famous attractions like The Alamo to your itinerary. Take plenty of time to mingle with the locals, famous for their hospitality, generosity, and fiercely independent spirit.
