I'm afraid this year has unfortunately gotten away from me. I really wanted to do the October 4, 2015 program but have a scheduling conflict. Will the Signature City Austin be offered in 2016 ?

Eloise Mares Nov 22, 2014 at 06:30 PM

Will this trip be offered again later in the year? I would like to go but will be doing the Cuba trip in Januayr.

Eloise- We will be offering Signature City Austin on October 4, 2015, which is a great time to be in Austin. You might also consider enrolling in program #10459, which begins in San Antonio and moves to Austin for the last 3 days. The wildflowers in Texas are beautiful at that time. Hope you enjoy your trip to Cuba, then head our way!

Thank you so much for the information about the October 2015 program. I didn't see it in the website so I am glad that you told me. I am particularly interested in the music scene in Austin since some of my favorite musicians come from that area. Will the October program also visit Austin City Limits? Thank you again for your help.

Yes, we will again feature the daytime tour of the new ACL studio. There may be a show there that week that you can buy tickets for, but we get you in for a studio tour during the day. Hope you join us!
