The Texas State Capitol is the capitol building and seat of government of the American state of Texas. Located in downtown Austin, Texas, the structure houses the offices and chambers of the Texas Legislature and of the Governor of Texas.
Texas Capitol is in walking distance from our property. While it could be a bit hot to walk in Summer months, the rest of the year it is worth to visit and walk in a beautiful park.
5.6 miles away is one of the largest State Capitol’s in the country. The Texas Capitol also has beautiful green lawns all around with large iron statues that are a wonderful salute to Texas. the Capitol is located on Congress Avenue which is the main street that divides the city into east and west…
The state capitol is a great place to visit and just a few blocks down, you will be in SoCo (South Congress) where you will find the stores and restaurants embodied with the quirkiness of Austin. There is ample amount of parking meters around the capitol.
A favorite place of our to take visitors. The grounds are beautiful and fun to explore, there is a history center at the front of the grounds that kids love, and the tours are really interesting.
