Austin

Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Venture out of the city with trips to Fredericksburg (Lost Draw Cellars, National Museum of the Pacific War, &more) and San Antonio (The Alamo, Mission San Jose, &more). There's still lots to do: take in the views from Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, stroll around Mount Bonnell, see the interesting displays at LBJ Presidential Library, and admire the striking features of Texas State Capitol.

Plan a trip to Austin easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
