Off to the market

Austin’s city core radiates from the Texas State Capitol. Between the legislature, the presence of the University of Texas, and self-declared designation of “Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin is a pretty swinging town.

Below are some of the tried and true local favorites, chosen and organized into itineraries to give you an understanding of Austin’s history, traditions, character, and most memorable offerings.

Don’t attempt to visit all of the attractions listed below - that would be impossible in a day. Instead, select the most appealing given your interests, time, and the weather.

Public health concerns in 2020 have caused many cancellations and closures, and because the situation is fast changing we suggest you check the status of any attraction, restaurant, bar or venue shortly before visiting. For links to travel advice and updates see our Health section.
