If you’re looking for a quiet escape, it might be best to steer clear of Austin Nov. 15-17 as it sets up to host the U.S. Grand Prix. The race is billed as “a weekend of 147 screaming decibels of the most impressive machines in the world accelerating from 0 to 100 mph and back down to 0 in 5 seconds flat.” Along with the Formula 1 racing, the Circuit of the Americas weekend promises plenty of kids’ activities and musical events, including a performance by Miami’s own Pitbull.
