Situated on the stunning Colorado River, Austin is the artistic hub of Texas. With an eccentric alternative streak, Austin is a music-lovers paradise with a staggering 250 venues and a reputation for being the live music capital of the world. Downtown Austin houses the stunning Capitol Building, complete with its whispering gallery, whilst there are also plenty of other historical buildings and galleries to explore within the city. Watersport fans can make waves in the 1930s style bathhouse Eddy Pool, whilst those who like their swimming conditions extra cold, Barton Springs is worth a splash. Alternatively, take the trolley (or ‘dillo’ as it’s known locally) from Congress Avenue to Lady Bird Lake, where you can take a water cycle or a rowing boat and enjoy the tranquil waters of this enchanting city.
