The closest state park to Austin proper. Just south of town. Really fun and kid/dog-friendly. There are inexpensive camping sites. The admission is $6/adult (free for kids 12 and under). Lots of leisurely hiking to be had.

5.6 miles. Every local knows it for its swimming hole, but the only state park in Austin’s borders is also a hiker's dream. The three-trail system lets you choose your own adventure. History buffs will enjoy taking the Homestead Trail, which takes you to the ruins of namesake Thomas McKinney’s stone…

Capitol Building
“The pink-granite building is the centerpiece of downtown Austin, perched on a hill at 12th Street and Congress Avenue. Free guided tours are held daily, starting in the South Foyer, but brochures are also available on the first floor for self-guided tours. The Texas Legislature meets every two years, so you’ll have to check the schedule if you want to see an actual session in progress.”

“65 degree temperature all year round whether you want to swim or sit by the water and admire the view it is an absolute MUST SEE. Some interesting history: Long before Barton Springs Pool was built, the springs were considered sacred and were used for purification rituals by the Tonkawa Native American tribe who inhabited the area. Spanish explorers first found the springs in the 17th century, and around 1730 erected temporary missions at the site (later moving to San Antonio). In 1837, soon after incorporation of the city of Austin, William ("Uncle Billy") Barton, the springs' namesake, settled the area. Barton named the three separate springs after his three daughters: Parthenia, Eliza, and Zenobia. He, and subsequent owners of the property, recognized its value as a tourist attraction, and promoted it vigorously, thus leading to the swimming hole's lasting popularity. This also insured that the spring would be open to all visitors and be protected from any development.”
