The idea of leaving everything behind for a few days away is never far from the back of our minds. We’ve all been there. As the weekend starts to roll around, the impulse to take a break and try out some new scenery for a few days is generally a strong one. The new sights, sounds, and delicious foods you can’t find at home can make or break your trip. But where should you go? We’ve got you covered.

Austin is brimming with activity, and it’s just a short flight or road trip away (depending on your locale). It ranked at number 13 on the Travel + Leisure list. Immersing yourself in its distinct culture (the “Keep it Weird” scene and the community-focused events), some iconic dishes, and its phenomenal live music will definitely help you let loose for a while. It generally takes a lot to have a good time in a new place, but in Austin, they seem to have their finger on the pulse of what makes for a great three-day weekend trip. Plus, TexasHillCountry.com has fully-loaded articles and features for the best of what’s worth seeing, doing, and eating in the state capital.

San Antonio ranked at number 7. Is it any wonder? (Our only question was why it didn’t rank higher!) It has a top tier zoo, an aquarium experience, an NBA team, and some amazing arts and culture. And that doesn’t even begin to touch on its historical significance! The beauty and accessibility of the downtown core via the River Walk is also a sight for sore eyes. A three-day vacation here will definitely have you planning a return in the near future. It has its own unique sense of place, excellent food and beverages, and distinct neighborhoods that are walkable. With both Austin and San Antonio making the Travel + Leisure list, you can easily plan a welcoming, hassle-free visit to the best of what our Texas Hill Country cities have to offer, and you can return home feeling refreshed after everything’s said and done!
