Haunted Austin Walking History Tour

128 reviews
For a not-so-typical take on Austin history, visitors can experience the ghastly tales of this historic city on this storyteller-led haunted walking tour. Get ready for a good scare as you head out for your nighttime adventure to uncover tales of ghosts, murderers, and the spooky stories in between. Stop at haunted attractions, including the Driskill Hotel, and hear about how Austin has developed over the decades.

The employees at the Capitol I BELIEVE Really Love their Jobs. They have a strong desire to protect the place, they are people who really take their jobs seriously.... Good Work, God Bless!!

There are many places on the lawn to take nice photos at. This is a great place to have a picnic at as well. Will definitely visit here again when I find myself back in Austin.

The capitol grounds are still not open, but it was nice to walk around! Parking was easy and there were many photo spots.

In many cities the the State Capitol building occupies a prominent position in the city. Such is the case here in Austin. There are many places around the city where you can catch a glimpse of the distinctive capitol building. But because there are many buildings taller than the capitol building there are not many unobstructive views of the capitol and trying to get close to the capitol to walk around the building is not possible now due to COVID. So I give the capitol an average rating.

The capital was beautiful from afar. Because of the Covid-19 we were not allowed to actually walk the grounds. We will visit another time.
