The Texas State Flag and US Flag Fly proudly at the Texas State Capitol.jpg
Austin is not only the home of the University of Texas, but the Texas State Capitol Building. The Capitol grounds span 22 acres and feature historical buildings, 17 monuments, and beautifully landscaped lawns in addition to the Capitol building itself. Visitors are free to explore the grounds, which are great for picnics or fun photo opps. All guided tours of the Capitol building are completely free. Come see where Texas history was made and continues to be made each day!
