Things to Do in Austin

Austin is the capital of Texas, home of the University of Texas at Austin® and gateway to the beautiful Hill Country. As the Live Music Capital of the World®, the city has a soundtrack all its own. More than 250 live music venues flourish with rock, indie, pop and Tejano. Top notch restaurants with legendary barbeque and farm-to-table cuisine whet your appetite. Shop in one-of-a-kind boutiques that line South Congress and the 2nd Street district, or head out to the Hill Country to relax in a world class destination spa.  More than 300 days of sunshine lend itself to a refreshing dip in Barton Springs or try stand-up paddle boarding on Lady Bird Lake.
