Most beautiful places to visit in Austin

There are many different beautiful places in Austin to visit. Here are my top four.


#1 The State Capitol

The Texas State Capitol is one of the coolest places to visit in Austin. It is the largest state capitol building in the country. Underneath the building is an underground extension, and it has a statue of the Goddess of Liberty on top. The rotunda located at the center of the building is a circular collection of seals representing the six flags that have flown over the state. If you stand in the middle of it and speak, it will make your voice echo. The building has over four floors filled with facts and history about Texas. Overall, if you live in Austin or visit Austin, this would be a great place to visit to learn about Texas.


#2  Ladybird Lake

The next place you should visit is Lady Bird Lake. Ladybird Lake is 468 acres of water. The lake is named after Claudia Alta Taylor “Lady Bird” Johnson, (December 22, 1912 – July 11, 2007), who was First Lady of the United States (1963-69), as the wife of the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon B Johnson. In 2017, Lady Bird Lake’s water quality was rated “Fair” and is considered safe for contact recreation. This is a great place to visit if you want to go on a walk or run, or if you want to go kayaking, swimming, and/or paddle boarding.


#3  Mount Bonnell

Another place you should visit is Mount Bonnell. Mount Bonnell is located right next to the Colorado River that runs through Austin. Mount Bonnell has approximately 106 stairs you have to walk up to get to the top which is 775 feet above sea level, but it is worth it because of its breathtaking views. The view is looking onto the beautiful Colorado River. This astounding place is named after George W. Bonnell.


#4.   Bob Bullock Texas History Museum

The last place I am recommending is The Bullock Texas State History Museum. The museum is located just south of the University of Texas. This museum shows you facts and pieces about Texas history. This fantastic museum was built in 2001, and since then, there have been renovations and other historical artifacts added, such as the 17th century Ship La Belle. The museum is named for the state’s 38th Lieutenant Governor, Bob Bullock, who championed the preservation and exhibition of Texas history. The bronze star in the Lone Star Plaza in front of the museum is 35 feet tall.

SO those are my top four beautiful places in Austin to visit. If you ever decide to visit Austin, I would recommend visiting at least one of these places! You will love them as much as I do.
