All you need to know About Austin and Texas…


First time in town? I bet you have so many questions! I like curious people, so I prepared a tour just for you. .
Who is Austin?
What does Texas mean?
When Texas became independent?
Why Austin is the Capital of Texas? And Where was the Capital of Texas before?
Why we like to say "keep Austin weird"?
Let me guided you through the fascinating story of this cute sleepy hippie town that was and is Austin!
Come with all the questions you can think. . . I love trivia!
We are going to walk around the Capitol, the Governor Mansion, Congress, 6th and 2nd streets, the Lady Bird Lake and the Bat Bridge. . .

Itinerary

Let me walk you around the Big Pink Capitol (even if we should not dare call it pink. . . )
We are going to stroll around Congress Avenue until reaching the Lake (which is also an inaccurate name, It's a river!)
We will also take a walk on the west side, less touristic area, where amazing Victorians homes are still standing!
