Austin by Day and Night – Entertainment Options
As the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin echoes with the sound of country, rock ‘n’ roll, blues, jazz and Tejano in more than 250 venues any night of the week. With six entertainment districts and a safe and walkable downtown, it is easy to enjoy Austin’s famous live music. Visitors can also enjoy everything from fine dining in Four Star restaurants to down-home barbecue and authentic Tex-Mex.
By day, visitors can enjoy the capital city’s many historical attractions, including the Texas State Capitol, the LBJ Presidential Library and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. There are seven museums and 17 libraries located at The University of Texas at Austin. One can also experience the beauty of central Texas, captured by downtown’s Lady Bird Lake, bordered by ten miles of trails enjoyed by runners, walkers and cyclists.
The Austin Convention Center is conveniently located near 23 hotels with 9,000 hotel rooms in the downtown area. Adjacent to the convention center is the 800-room Hilton Austin, with a 1,012-room JW Marriott Austin just a short walk away. The Fairmont Austin opened in early March 2018. There are 33,000 hotel rooms citywide.
The meeting experience begins immediately when attendees arrive in the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), just 8 miles from downtown. The airport is listed among the top five airports in both North America and the world for excellence in customer service. As one of the newest airports in the country, it serves more than 70 non-stop destinations.
