At night, enjoy some good barbecue like pulled pork sandwiches and barbecue beef brisket at Stubb’s (801 Red River), then listen to some live music. Continue your trip down presidential memory lane with a visit to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum (2313 Red River). Make a stop at the Austin Museum of Art at Laguna Gloria (3809 West 35th St), which is on the way back from Mount Bonnell, and enjoy the exhibits that celebrate the marriage of art and nature. Enjoy lunch at Chuy’s Tex-Mex (1728 Barton Springs), an Austin institution known for its “Big As Yo’ Face” burritos and sopapillas, numerous vegetarian fare options (the veggie enchiladas are awesome), stout margaritas, and obsession with all things Elvis. Try the Tableside Guacamole, made fresh as you watch, or the Shrimp Enchiladas. If you can, try to head out during the week, since the boat rental places tend to get very busy on the weekends. 2 days: Get up early, grab some house-roasted European coffee and a homemade pastry (the cinnamon rolls are huge and flaky — they melt in your mouth!) at Mozart’s Coffee Roasters (3825 Lake Austin Blvd) on Lake Austin, and enjoy the tranquility of the water, or make the short drive to watch the sun rise over Mount Bonnell.
Select an organic coffee blend and chill out, or enjoy an ice-cold Lone Star beer and a sandwich. 2 days: Spend the next day on South Congress Avenue, also called “SoCo.” Start your day with hot coffee to go at Jo’s Hot Coffee & Good Food (1300 South Congress), which is known as much for its people-watching and “Austintatious” attitude as it is for the coffee. Stop for lunch at the Iron Cactus (606 Trinity at Sixth Street), where you’ll enjoy fresh margaritas and upscale Tex-Mex food. If it’s not too hot, ask for a table on the rooftop deck overlooking Sixth Street. This building, made in 1870, is 10 feet above the current street level and is a good contrast to the skyscrapers around it. The guide suggests a few baselines for comfort, like a simulated walking speed of 4.5 feet (1.4 meters) per second, a minimum frame rate of 60 frames per second (fps), an ideal latency of 20 milliseconds or less and virtual placement of static objects no closer than 1.6 feet (50 centimeters) away from the user.

As you leave, pretend you’re Lance Armstrong on the Veloway (access the trail from Mopac, just south of Slaughter Lane and right near the Wildflower Center), a 3.17-mile, 23-feet-wide paved trail that is exclusively for cyclists and rollerbladers — no walkers or runners allowed. 3 days: See the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country upclose at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center (4801 La Crosse Ave), where planting areas, wildflower meadows, exhibits, and an observation tower honor Mrs. Johnson’s passionate devotion to native landscaping and preservation. A row of windows located down the building’s center is angled inward to accommodate shadows and light. Visit the ultra-hip Penn Field Design District (3601 South Congress Ave), a mixed-use retail space and noted architectural renovation that is now home to the Design Center of Austin (3601 South Congress at Penn Field, Suite C), a collection of specialty showrooms for architecture and design that’s open to the public and to the trade.

Housed inside a restored 1916 Italian-style villa, the museum is a meditative place to spend the afternoon.
