What to do in or around Austin, TX?

Jump to last reply

My husband & I (both in our mid-20s) are planning to travel to Austin, Texas towards the end of October. We will be there for a week and will have a car to get around. We are staying with family and plan to drive into San Antonio for one day to see the Alamo and the Riverwalk. Are there any must sees in Austin or in the nearby areas? My husband & I really like hiking and doing more outdoor activities. Any good places to hike around Austin or within a couple hours driving distance? We are also planning on spending some time in downtown Austin too. Any suggestions on restaurants or bars? I really enjoy live music and I hear Austin is a good place for that!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
