    Texas State Capitol

    There is so much to do here. The grounds are great to walk on/around or picnic on or read a bit of history. You can almost always find parking very near the area, even though it's in the middle of downtown. I love that the capitol is free to get in, so it's always a great place to take visitors. ...

    4.5
    60 reviews

    I don't get it...but people love it. They fly out in a single line, they don't all come out together at once, so for me it's a little underwhelming.

    The Broken Spoke, a South Austin icon since 1964, is the best place in town to get Austin's real Lone Star culture. The rustic dancehall (open Tues.- Sat.), now surrounded by South Lamar's modern high-rise condos and mixed-use developments, is the most famous honky-tonk in town, attracting a diverse crowd, from lifelong regulars and silver-haired aficionados to hipsters and tourists. ...
