Welcome to Austin

Austin is the Texas state capital city, but live music, tasty Tex-Mex food, succulent Texas-style barbecue beef, good beer, and 1.5 million bats made the town famous. Add in world-class museums, wildly diverse shopping experiences, and beautiful outdoor spaces to create an exciting visitor destination. Austin has numerous historic buildings, the scenic Texas Hill Country outside the city makes a nice day trip, and paddlers will enjoy Lake Austin and Lady Bird Lake.
