Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Visiting Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail and Barton Creek Greenbelt will get you outdoors. Step out of Austin with an excursion to Crystal Falls Golf Course in Leander--about 34 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Barton Springs Pool, appreciate the history behind Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue, zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and identify plant and animal life at Austin Nature & Science Center.
