Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum
Learn the “Story of Texas” at this Austin gem across three floors of exhibits, a special effects show and an IMAX theater. Named after a former Lieutenant Governor, the museum gives plenty of fodder for why everything is bigger in Texas.
Barton Springs Pool
Part of the 358-acre Zilker Park, the Barton Springs Pool spans three acres and measures a cool 68 degrees year-round, thanks to the underground springs that feed it. Take a nap on the surrounding grassy slopes -- and don’t be alarmed by topless sunbathing, it’s legal in Austin.
Austin’s dance hall (see also: honey-tonk) has been around since 1964 -- and it still relies on a winning formula of country music and Texas cooking (try the chicken fried steak). Don’t miss the room dedicated to country music memorabilia, and keep your eyes peeled: Willie Nelson is known to appear when he’s in town.
Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
Yes, Texas may have a reputation of being a dry, tumbleweed state, but it’s actually awash in native wildflowers. The center, established by former first lady and actress Helen Hayes, has a nature trail, meadows and numerous gardens, including iconic bluebonnets each spring.
Long Center for the Performing Arts
The Austin Symphony Orchestra, Austin Lyric Opera and Ballet Austin all have a home at the newly renovated Long Center for the Performing Arts. On the shores of Lady Bird Lake, the center has a variety of performance spaces, including several outdoor venues.
Sometimes the only way to see a city is to leave it. For great views of Austin, head to Mount Bonnell on the shores of Lake Austin where you'll climb 100 steps to the summit. Enjoy a picnic and watch the sun set.
Texas State Capitol
Take a free guided tour of the1888 Italian Renaissance Revival structure where you'll see marble statues of local heroes Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston, the flag from the Battle of San Jacinto in the House Chamber, and more.
