The unpretentious Texas town of Austin is a great place to spend the weekend. Austin is the live music capital of the world and is also rich with history and culture. Leave your Austin hotel on Saturday morning and take in a few museums. Visits to the Austin History Center and the Austin Museum of Art are both great ways to get acquainted with the town and its past. Then, head over to Republic Square for the local Farmer’s market where you can find great produce and other items for lunch along with an inexpensive bunch of flowers to take home.
When evening rolls around, don’t forget to have a steak dinner and take in some live music. Antone’s is one of the best venues for live blues, or visit the Austin Music Hall. This is one of Austin’s largest venues, with four bars and a capacity of more than 3000 people. This venue hosts music acts from many genres, so check the schedule ahead of your visit.
