he hardest part of living in Austin is trying to fit in so many fun things to do – whether it’s a trip
to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, splashing at Barton Springs, shopping on
South Congress, or sampling yummy bites from downtown food trailers.
Try the Round Rock Express for minor league baseball, the Texas Stars for hockey, or top college football
with the University of Texas Longhorns. Looking for culture? Austin has that too, with noted museums, theaters, and galleries. Cool off at area lakes for swimming, waterskiing, sailing, or fishing. No boat? No
problem! There are plenty of marinas to rent your own.
Try a weekend trip to San Antonio, Dallas, or Houston, or plan a visit to one of the charming smaller
towns such as Fredericksburg, San Marcos, or Dripping Springs. Austin’s central location makes getting
there much easier. Read on for a sample of what this fun city has to offer.
