Upon arrival at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), set your clock forward, grab a bite to eat or catch some live music. Just like its airport, Austin is a sprawling city, so having a reliable rental car is essential for getting around at your own convenience.
Ready to stretch your legs after the flight? It's only four miles from the airport to McKinney Falls State Park. If you're a history buff, then head nine miles north on Airport Boulevard, to the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library. Double back on Route 290 and you're in the heart of downtown Austin in just over 10 minutes.
Throughout Austin, you'll find live music venues and festivals, great food and multiple breweries, head for the Jester King Brewery. Museums in Austin range from the Bullock Museum's exhibits about Texas history, to the whimsical Cathedral of Junk. Fans of large scale events should aim to arrive during Austin's world-famous Art Car Parade, or the SXSW Film Festival, held in March.
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has nonstop flights throughout the day. In just over three hours, you'll trade the bustle of L.A. for the welcoming capital of Texas. Austin's airport will soon open a consolidated rental car pickup and drop-off for your convenience. Once you arrive downtown, you'll find plenty of metered on-street parking that's free in the evenings.
