Owner description: If it's in Texas, it must be bigger and better. That is the motto that architects followed with the Capitol Building in Austin. At one time, it was the tallest capitol building in the nation. Others might be taller now, but this is still a beautiful building that shows off many of the natural resources which are so prevalent in Texas, such as limestone and the landscapes.

This is one of the better attractions in Austin. While visiting we took a tour to see the building and learn some more about Texas history. The tour lasted around 40 minutes and covered most major parts of the building, events in Texas history, as well as important figures. The building is open to the public so it made it easy to wander around and check out everything at your own pace. We went on a Friday morning hoping it to be less crowded but the place was very busy with groups and employees without any legislative work being done, leading me to believe the easist way to avoid crowds is to go early in the week and early in the morning.

We made this our turnaround destination after walking from East Austin. We stayed longer than we thought and enjoyed the visit of the premises. Very amicable to sitting and relaxing. There were others here on a Sunday afternoon but it was not overcrowded to say the least.

We liked everything about the Capitol - We took the tour and also toured on our own, very interesting to see every aspect on what goes on behind the scenes
