Texas is an enormous state with plenty to offer its visitors. There are plenty of people that live in Texas that haven’t even had the pleasure of visiting the state capitol. From Seguin, Texas, it is an 8 hour drive north just to get out of the state.

Fortunately for me, Austin is only 45 minutes away from Seguin, so I have been to the state capitol many times. However, I wish I could say I’ve been to more of the attractions than I have. There is tons to do in Austin when you vacation there.

Since Austin is the capitol of Texas, one of the things you might want to do is actually visit the capitol building. You might also want to visit the Baylor Street Art Wall. You can also get yourself an electric bike from Rocket Electrics to use when touring the city, which is truly a unique experience.

Tubing in the river is a fun hobby for many Texans, and there is a great spot to go tubing in Austin. ATXcursions is going to be the company you want to get in touch with for the best tubing experience. Do you have your dogs along with you for the trip? If so, then you can visit one of the great parks in Austin, which is dog friendly. Zilker Park would be your stop, and it encompasses 351 acres.

There is also the Austin Eats Food Tour that is a great experience, and of course this will tell you where you might want to grab a bite to eat. Lake Austin is always a fun trip, too, and then there are some great swimming holes that you might want to visit, especially during the heat of the summer.
