Sightseeing near Texas State Capitol

- University of Texas at Austin


Museum buffs should head to the university campus for the Blanton Museum of Art and the Texas Memorial Museum of Science and History as well as the university’s famous tower with its breathtaking views. Strolling around the campus itself and admiring the public art installations dotted around makes for a relaxing afternoon away from the noise and bustle of the city.


- Congress Avenue Bridge


The Congress Avenue Bridge spanning the Colorado River is best visited at sunset for one amazing reason – bats. The world’s largest urban bat colony has made its home under the spans of the bridge, and all 1.5 million of them emerge at dusk between March and November for their insect meal and air tour of the city. The best way to see this unique spectacle is by boat.


Transportation near Texas State Capitol

Driving in Austin is fine for those used to big-city roads, although the city’s public transport systems make getting around straightforward and inexpensive. The Capital Metro bus network offers downtown routes, connections between the districts and express bus services as well as a weekday, limited-route commuter rail service linking the downtown core with North Austin. Night Owl buses serve the popular entertainment districts until very late.
