Austin is a city of over 840,000, located in the Hill Country of central Texas.

It is the state capital, as well as an influential center for politics, technology, music, theater, and other cultural activities. Its annual SXSW festival is a legendary event attracting people from all over the world.

Austin also bills itself the “Live Music Capital of the World” due to the large number of venues.

Austin’s embrace of alternative cultures is commonly emblazoned about town on T-Shirts and bumper stickers that read: “Keep Austin Weird.”

The surrounding Hill Country provides a scenic setting and can be visited by car or by scenic railway.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
