Enjoy Live Music & More with an Austin, TX Bus Charter
Rent a Bus to See Bats, the Longhorns & Great Music Shows
Austin may home to the University of Texas Longhorns football team but to music fans, it's "The Live Music Capital of the World." Featuring more than 250 music venues around the city, Austin actually spawned one of the greatest Blues movements in history at Antone's Nightclub, where the late Blues legends Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Stevie Ray Vaughan performed.
Austin is a big city that doesn't act like a big city. Yes, it's the capital of the Lone Star State but the vibe here is young, energized and independent. It's best known for its music festivals, sports events, its bat colony and its generally liberal attitude. Located in the Hill Country of Texas, this beautiful area offers much to see and do.

When the Sun Sets, Austin Comes Alive — And So Do the Bats
Like any other Texas town, football is more than a pastime in Austin. It’s a passion. But it’s the local music scene that gives the Lone Star State’s capital city its edgy appeal, that and those bats that fly out from underneath the Congress Avenue Bridge every night. From great music venues to historic landmarks, below are just some of the attractions and points of interest worth a visit during your travels through the area.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — Central Austin boasts more original music nightclubs in a concentrated area than any other city in the world, or so they like to say. Bars and clubs catering to every music genre occupy the Victorian and native-stone buildings in the famous Sixth Street entertainment district, perfect for a pub crawl or a night out dancing. Looking for family fun? Travel just 60 minutes outside the city to slip and slide down the tube shoots and water slides at Schlitterbahn, named America's No. 1 water park by the Travel Channel. For kids, there’s Kiddie Acres with its trains rides, Ferris wheel and boat rides.

And don’t skip Austin’s eclectic mix of museums, from the Blanton Museum of Art on the University of Texas campus to the natural history exhibits at the Texas Memorial Museum.
- Restaurants & Shopping — There's a strong movement within Austin to protect it from over-commercialization.
