Texas State Capitol
#1 of 85 Sights & Landmarks in Austin
What great history for Texas !! Start your trip by heading north on congress Ave to take in the view and as you stroll up the steps take in the history of the building and watch how our govt works.
We spend a bit of time strolling those gardens and then once inside, we had the opportunity to spend a few minutes gazing at the interior dome which is certainly a beautiful site.

We were in Grandstand 15 - Awesome view of the stadium portion of the course... Perfect spot to see the racers for a decent period of time .... Weather was awesome , people are very friendly ...

Pennybacker Bridge
#17 of 85 Sights & Landmarks in Austin
I haven't gotten off at the bridge, I have just driven over it many times, the view is awesome, but if you have some time, you can stop on either side of the bridge, park and walk around to enjoy the awesome view.
If you head off to the right after taking your iconic photo there is a trail that's a good mile or two with beautiful flowers and butterflies and some more views further down the river
