For a different way to spend the day, Schlitterbahn Water Park and Six Flags Fiesta Texas are there too! And if it is basketball season, the Spurs play plenty of home games each year.

Austin

 
 

The Live Music Capital of the World is home to several music festivals each year, including SXSW and ACL for all the music fans out there. Austin is also a major tour stop for many artists as they make their way through Texas. For those looking for a more historical trip, try visiting the capitol building or Barton Springs. The shopping scene in Austin focuses on the idea of "keeping it local." There are several large shopping regions in the area - The Domain and Second Street District. And for all the golfers, Austin has also been ranked among the highest for golf courses.
