Everything is bigger in Texas, and few cities boast the stateliness and splendor of Austin. The capital of the 'Lone Star State' offers a diverse range of cuisine, entertainment, history and music. One weekend may simply not be enough to enjoy all that Austin has to offer. If you are lucky enough to attend a football game at the University of Texas, the crowds of fans wearing burnt orange while chanting "Hook 'Em Horns” will definitely cause excitement. Be sure to join a free tour of the nearby State Capitol Building, where many famous figures in Texas history are enshrined. Grab a drink at the Driskill Hotel, one of Austin’s oldest establishments (But beware, the hotel is rumored to be haunted). The bars and restaurants along 6th street definitely “Keep Austin Weird,” as the locals say. After dinner, you can’t escape the nightly live music scene, which is among the country's best. This is one city in Texas you definitely do not want to miss.
