But what’s also in the area are plenty of shopping, wineries, horse racing, Garven Gardens, and so much more. The whole family will love it here.

You can’t beat being in the Live Music Capital of the World, which explains Austin to a tee. Take a stroll down 6th Street to say you’ve done it. Hang out longer if you like it, as plenty of places would love to serve you and your whole gang.

Visiting Cape Cod has been on my list for a long time. The beaches are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, so I’ve heard. One day, I’ll experience it. You’ll find plenty of boutiques and restaurants to fill your day here. Visiting lighthouses is a must-do.
