San Antonio day trip to Austin or Waco

Is the Texas rangers museum worth it or Arlington to see the rangers baseball game?

How does Austin fit into your equation?

Arlington and the MLB baseball team are located in the Dallas area.

and the law enforcement museum http://www.texasranger.org/ is in Waco.

Two different topics.baseball vesus law enforcement...sort of an interesting combo

(Chuck Norris will not be inducted into the Raner Musuem until 2015 though)

Yes, Austin is worth a day trip

We live near Waco, and enjoy the zoo, Mammoth site, and the Mayborn Museum. However, the Texas Ranger Museum is not a world-class attraction. Also, Waco is a good three hour trip from San Antonio which cuts into the "day trip" with six hours on the road (and I-35 is not exactly scenic!).

Austin may be your best choice--no baseball, but quite a bit to see and do.

Hope you enjoy your trip to Texas!

Its about a 4 hour drive from San Antonio to Rangers ball park. I drove it last week... i loved the Rangers Park but im not sure if you want to do the drive or not if youre starting in San Antonio. Theres a bunch of different places to see in SA and Austin. SA's history boat tour was cheap and fun. Houston is only 2.5 hours away from SA and they have the Astros... hope that helped!

There is baseball just outside of Austin. The Round Rock Express plays at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock, which is about 20 miles north of downtown Austin. It's about an hour and a half drive from San Antonio. They are a AAA team, affiliated with the Rangers. The games are fun and the Dell Diamond is a great place to watch a game - http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t102

Round Rock (just north of Austin) has baseball at the Dell Diamond.

Round Rock Express is a minor league team with a huge fan base.
