Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
On the 26th (Sun), snap pictures at Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Barton Springs Pool. Keep things going the next day: get a sense of history and politics at Texas State Capitol, then take an in-depth tour of Bullock Texas State History Museum, then examine the collection at LBJ Presidential Library, and finally steep yourself in history at The Driskill.

There's much more to do: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, stop by The Candle Lab, observe the fascinating underwater world at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, and take a stroll through Easton Town Center.
