Quite the impressive capital, and you can see it from virtually everywhere downtown, as Lady Bird Johnson made sure buildings were situated at a height and angle to ensure visibility. LBJ and Lady Bird are revered here – their names are on everything!
We also checked out the UT Austin campus – right next to the downtown core. Austin is fiercely non-establishment and still a young city, despite their 40% population increase in the last 10 years. Downtown Austin reminded us of Seattle about 5 to 10 yrs ago – it’s just getting the downtown core going (barely).
