Are you going to the Xojo Developer Conference (XDC) this April? If so, then you might be looking for some things to do during your visit. Here's a quick guide of some places that might be of interest.
Austin is the capital of Texas, so you should take a look at their capitol building (see Figure 1). You can also visit the Saint Mary Cathedral (Figure 2).
In downtown Austin, be sure to visit 6th Street and the surrounding area. There are plenty of restaurants where you can find live music in the evening. A few years ago we went to a restaurant with the conference people and they talked Geoff Perlman (CEO of Xojo, Inc.) into playing the drums that night!
If you want to go for a walk, you can start right at the hotel and enjoy the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail and Boardwalk. It's a round trip along the river where you can walk or jog in the morning.
Other places in Texas
Near Austin there are many interesting and historic places, such as Gruene (Figures 3-5), the Inner Space Cavern (Figure 6), the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site (Figure 7-8), and even cool ghost towns (Figures 9-10).
