Overview

 
Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! This thoroughly revised and updated new edition of Day Trips from Austin is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover in your own backyard. With full trip-planning information and tips on where to eat, shop, and stop along the way, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip. Explore places you never knew existed, many free of charge, and most within a two-hour drive of Austin.

Do something sweet: Visit Blue Bell Creameries in Brenham to see the making of ice cream and enjoy a free scoop at tour’s end.

Do something wonderful: Ride on a miniature train that takes you through the state’s largest petting zoo, and have your mind bent in the Anti-Gravity House—both at Wonder World in San Marcos.

Do something outdoorsy: Vacation at one of the dude ranches that dot the landscape around Bandera for horseback riding, cookouts, fishing, hiking, and even country-western dance lessons.
