Overview

No planning required!

Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! Day Trips from Austin is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover right in your own backyard. Explore places you never knew existed-many free of charge and most within a two-hour drive of Austin.
Do something wild: Whoop it up at dude ranches, rodeos, and country-music venues in Bandera, "The Cowboy Capital of the World."
Do something educational: Find out about the natural and social history of the northern region at the Mayborn Museum Complex, where the learning goes well beyond the museum's walls.
Do something soul-restoring: Take a refreshing dip at Hamilton Pool Preserve, where a grotto fed by a 50-foot waterfall forms a natural swimming hole.
With full trip-planning information, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip.
