Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Step out of Austin to go to San Antonio and see Natural Bridge Caverns, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol, get engrossed in the history at LBJ Presidential Library, stroll through Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Barton Creek Greenbelt.
