Do we go to Austin? Or do you have a better plan for us. Please help me decide on where to go and what to see.

So after about two hours of staring at expedia/kayak NYT Travel section and a bunch of others I have realized that I am decisive about many things, but planning a trip is not one of them. Please help.
Early 30 couple wants to get away from New York for a long weekend of May 2-5
About $2000 max budget for this including flights/hotels/gas/munching
We do not want to go anywhere colder than New York right now.
Enjoy wandering around new places/shops/restaurants, but could also just lie on the beach.
Don't want to be just at an all inclusive resort, would like to experience local things.
Nature is good, but not required.
Any NY airport is fine with us, direct flights would be nice, I don't want to spend the entire weekend in transit.
We used to live in Alexandria VA (which we ADORED), and have therefore already done DC.
We have always wanted to go see Austin, Tx, because we think it might be somewhere we would consider living in the future- is this enough time to get a feel for it, or is it too rushed?
So metafilter, where would you go, where would you stay, and bonus points for great restaurants. Please help me just MAKE UP MY MIND AND GO.
