Beyond the many unique places we'll experience together, you'll meet some fascinating creative leaders as we engage you in a series of conversations around livable cities in relation to adaptive re-use and urban waterfront developments.

Join other adventurers on a trip including the following highlights...

What’s included:

  • An active, four night, three-day itinerary of architecture, art, and cultural experiences in Austin, San Antonio, and the Hill Country, limited to 21 travelers.

  • Meetings with architects, artists and community leaders who will share insights and expertise along the way.

  • One lunch and two dinners in spectacular venues

  • Local transport to all destinations

Tour cost is $1,200 per person for the activities noted above, which does not include hotel or transportation to Austin.

We've reserved a block of rooms at the iconic Austin Hotel San Jose, located on the lively South Congress Avenue minutes away from top restaurants, famous live music venues, funky shopping, Lady Bird Lake, and downtown, but you're welcome to arrange your own accommodations. 

Activities will start with a casual (optional) welcome gathering for cocktails at 8pm on Wednesday, November 9, and tour activities begin at 9:30 am on Thursday, November 10, and continue through 9pm Saturday, November 12. Please plan your flights to arrive on Wednesday and depart on Sunday or later. We recommend you consider arriving earlier or staying longer-there's lots to do in Central Texas and we'd be glad to make recommendations or introduce you to people who can deepen your understanding and enjoyment of the area
