Austin, as the "Live Music Capital of the World," offers its own vibe. Music is everywhere in this town. It's so easy to find that you may stumble on a free concert while you're checking out the sites. And then there's simply strolling down Sixth Street, keeping an ear out for any particularly enticing music and an eye out for colorful people. In this area you never know what to expect, which is part of its charm.

Of course, Austin has its own body of water downtown, Lady Bird Lake, encircled by the Hike and Bike Trail, which offers great views of the water, the trees, and the downtown skyline. If more fresh air is required, you can head out to the surrounding area, studded with limestone caverns and natural springs. Finding plenty to do is easy; but make sure you find the time to kick back and experience Austin's relaxed vibe.
