Austin

Austin is the type of destination you'll be reminiscing about years after the souvenir T-shirt has faded.

This Hill Country location is home to about 800,000 people.

Barton Springs Pool and Wonder World are lovely places to spend some time with the children. For more fun with the family, continue on to the Austin Children's Museum and Northwest Recreation Center.

The Austin Zoo is a great place to bring the family for an entertaining morning among local and exotic creatures. If you can't spare too much time, find the information desk and collect a map so you don't miss any of the park favorites.

This region's wine yards sure know how to entertain the senses. Meet the devoted cellar masters, sample the latest vintage and enjoy a great day out at the Duchman Family Winery or the Bell Springs Winery. Ready for one or two more? The Solaro Estate and the Hawk's Shadow Winery should also be added to your itinerary.

Featuring well cared for horticultural displays and an assortment of local and exotic plants, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and the Zilker Botanical Garden should be on the itinerary of any visiting gardeners.

For fresh air and relaxation, pack some lunch and find a shady corner at one of the picturesque green spaces, such as Frontier Park and Reed Park. There's also plenty of space to laze about at Garrison Park and Dunbar Park.

With so many things to see in Austin, you'll need some help deciding. Once you arrive, pick up some local knowledge at Capitol Visitors Center. You might also like to browse the informative flyers and maps at Old Bakery and Emporium and Austin Visitor Center.

Expanses of fresh water almost always attract an eclectic range of animals. Pull out your binoculars at Lake Austin or Lady Bird Lake and see what's around. No luck? Make your way over to Lake Bastrop and Lake Pflugerville and try again.

If you're on the hunt for somewhere to laze around and chill out for a bit, take a day trip out to Shoal Beach. Here you'll come across locals and tourists alike taking advantage of the refreshing water and scenic views.

Leave your phone in the car and have a break from the stresses of the modern world at Zilker Park and McKinney Falls State Park. Old Settlers Park and Rio Vista Park are also popular with nature lovers.

Broaden your horizons by spending some time at one of the area's educational cultural spaces. Savor the contemplative atmosphere as you check out the collections at the Texas Military Forces Museum and the Dinosaur Park. Another two to consider are the Texas Music Museum and the Stark Center for Physical Culture and Sports.

Not only are the collections at the Austin Nature and Science Center and the Texas Natural Science Center a lot of fun to look at, they're also highly educational.

Are you an art aficionado? You'll discover galleries of all varieties here. Start your explorations of this creative paradise with a visit to the Blanton Museum of Art and the AMOA-Arthouse. If you have time afterwards, the Elisabet Ney Museum and the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture are also well worth a look.

History lovers can explore chronicles of former times at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and the Texas Memorial Museum. The Austin History Center and the George Washington Carver Museum are also worthy options.

Learn more about this area's past with a trip to Texas State Capitol and University of Texas Tower, just a couple of the preserved historic sites here. You might also like to take a few photos at Governor's Mansion and the Southwestern University.

Take a little time out to watch the water flowing underneath Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge. This age-old structure has played an important role in connecting the city's residents.

The spiritual side of the region can be found at the Congregation Beth Israel and Bannockburn Baptist Church. You might also like to take a walk around First Presbyterian Church or Romanian Orthodox Church.

Once you've ticked off the major points of interest in and around Austin, take the time to see a few of its less well-known sights. The Austin Public Library and the Dougherty Arts Center could be up your alley. If you can squeeze it in, also think about visiting the Hyde Park Theatre or the Off Center.
