Snap a few photos of the massive grandstand that seats up to 120,000 people and listen as your guide points out the onsite amphitheater, which has hosted world-class musical acts including Metallica, Keith Urban, and Journey.

On your way back to the airport, enjoy breathtaking looks at the Austin skyline and catch glimpses of the deep blue waters of the Colorado River before you make a graceful landing.
