"What Not to Miss" driving Houston-Austin-San Antonio for 5 day visit

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to fly into Houston and drive to Austin - then through Hill Country to San Antonio & return to Houston Airport in 5 days this September. We want to see what that part of Texas might be like for retirement 2 years down the road.... We are active and adventurous but not campers! What are the "don't miss this" sights we should take in while doing this visit?

Also, great areas outside of Austin to explore buying a home?

Thanks for any tips :)
