If it's in Texas, it must be bigger and better, right? The breathtaking beauty and unusual construction of the Texas State Capitol is truly the stuff of legends in the Lone Star State. Grab your friends and family to visit the rotunda featuring portraits of every person who has served as president of the Republic of Texas or Governor of the state of Texas. View artifacts of Texas history, including the original flag from the Battle of San Jacinto, historical paintings and some of the original Senator desks from 1888. Take a guided tour of the Capitol grounds that span 22 acres featuring historical buildings, 17 monuments, and beautifully landscaped lawns in addition to the Capitol building itself, having nearly 400 rooms and more than 900 windows. Free walking tours of the Capitol are given daily (except on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Easter) and begin at the south entrance. In addition to the normal tours, groups of 10 or more can take specialty tours, including Women in Texas History, The Texas Revolution, Texas Veterans Tour, and Rest in Peace, a tour centered around the urban myths and ghost stories of the Capitol offered around Halloween.
Who knew? More than 18,000 works of art are on display at the Blanton Museum of Art, located at the University of Texas at Austin. Whether you prefer works from the United States, Europe or Latin America, you'll find one of the most pre-eminent collections the world over.
