No city is perfect, but if we're just talking about looks, Austin—with its lush green nature spots and lakes—is pretty spectacular. Here's a look at what makes Austin the perfect place to "staycation."


In the video, you'll go through Red Bud Isle, the Hill Country, Pace Bend Park, Westlake Hills, Tom Miller Dam, Zilker Park, Sahm Hill, Mueller Lake, St. Edwards University, Lady Bird Lake, Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, The Oasis, Lake Travis, Lake Austin, Pennybacker Bridge, the Barton Creek greenbelt, Sculpture Falls, Roy G. Guerrero Park, Longhorn Dam and, finally, downtown.

All year round, Austin has something to offer. And even in these trying times, when people can't gather for Blues on the Greens in Zilker Park and other summer events, at least you can always catch a great sunset wherever you are in Austin.
