Tips from locals
Learn all about Texas history! This is an excellently done museum and tells the rich history of Texas. Admission is free on the first Sunday of each month.
This attraction will help you check the required museum off your to-do list. It's also close to Univ of Texas (across the street) which is excellent for people watching.

“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.”

“Zilker Park is where ACL happens, where a great Zilker Christmas Light Show is, where the Stevie Ray Vaughn bronze is. Close enough to Casa Willow and Holly Neighborhood. Google what is happening at Zilker when you come.”
