Last-minute summer road trip: Top attractions in Austin

What are you waiting for? Start planning your trip today!

Technically, summer starts June 21 and ends Sept. 22. But for most people, the season actually begins on Memorial Day weekend and ends with the arrival of Labor Day. Meaning, the finals days of summer are upon us and there are only a handful of weekends between now and Sept. 5 to get out of the house and soak up the last rays of summertime sunshine.

We’ve got a few ideas to help you make the most of this summer’s official last hurrah.

One city up for your consideration -- Austin, the state capital of Texas.
