Five Star Austin hotels

Austin is known as the international capital of live music, with renowned festivals, a wealth of music venues, and a wide choice of nightclubs—yet the city offers much more than world-class rock ‘n’ roll for travelers in search of the high life. Explore the weird but wonderful side of the Texas state capital through its unique shops, bars, and restaurants, or delve into the city’s thriving film and theater scene. You can even crank things up a notch with one-of-a-kind sports activities. Whatever you choose to do, Austin never fails to surprise and delight.

Things to see in Austin

Take in one of the many shows, plays, or musicals at the modern and lively Zach Theater, or go back to Austin’s musical roots with a different type of theater—The Moody Theater—which seats 2,700 people and is the perfect venue for the world’s top singers and bands. Don’t miss a trip to the Texas State Capitol, home to the senate and billed as the seventh largest building in the world when it was constructed in 1888. Take a tour of the building, through this magnificent building’s marbled hallways and gaze up at its impressive dome, which stands at almost 310-feet high. If you’re not afraid of heights, come and spend an adrenaline-fueled day at the iFLY indoor skydiving center. Packages start from $59.95 for a full day’s worth of fun. Keep the good vibes going by partying at the live music venues and bars in the renowned Sixth Street entertainment district.
