Austin is the capital of the state of Texas and one of the largest cities in the state. It has a climate with hot summers and mild, dry winters and has plenty of scenic natural beauty as well as a vibrant urban community with a low crime rate. Austin has many attractions for residents and charter bus visitors alike that include an exciting music scene, beautiful outdoor areas, arts and history. One of the best ways of seeing Austin is with a bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Bus Charter Texas, letting you sample Austin’s attractions while travelling in style and comfort.
Described as the “jewel in the crown of Texas attractions” by former state governor John Connally, the Natural Bridge Caverns are a national natural landmark. Rental bus visitors can go on one of several different tours of the living Natural Bridge Caverns and see thousands of amazing cavern formations and a huge natural underground room. Tours include their most popular Discovery Tour; the Illuminations Tour, with dramatic cave lighting and a chance to experience the caverns in total darkness; and two different adventure tours that allow participants to climb, crawl and rappel throughout sections of the caverns. Additional activities include a 350-foot zip-line ride on the Watchtower Challenge. Rental bus visitors also can relax with a picnic outside the caverns or browse the gift shop.
Barton Springs Pool is a spring-fed pool with a natural rock and gravel lining. It stays the same temperature all year long, between 68 and 72 degrees. The pool is 900 feet long, the product of damming a series of natural limestone-filtered springs. The springs have been used by people for thousands of years, including ancient Indian tribes. Barton Springs Pool is an Austin landmark, and easily accessed by charter bus. It even has a unique species of salamander found only in the pool, named the Barton Springs Salamander.
Charter bus visitors on a visit to Zilker Botanical Gardens will find that its mission is “to promote the education and love of gardening among people of all ages,”. Established in 1955, it has 31 acres of various gardens including a fragrant herb garden, a rose garden, a Japanese garden, a cactus garden and a butterfly garden.

Mexic-Arte Museum is “the Official Mexican and Mexican American Fine Art Museum of Texas” in downtown Austin, according to its website.
