As the Claret-and-Cobalt prepare for the game against Austin FC, here are some activities you and your family can enjoy in the state capital during your trip down south.
The Texas State Capitol Building
They say everything is bigger in Texas, and when it comes to the Texas State Capitol building, that may very well be true. Standing 14 feet taller than the United States Capitol building in Washington DC, the impressive structure was built in 1888 and has seen its fair share of history. Admission to see the state capitol is free, so it’s the perfect option for a history buff looking for something to do before the game.
Named “Best Barbecue in the Country” by Bon Appetit, Franklin Barbecue is one of the crown jewels of Texas Barbecue. Owner Aaron Franklin started the restaurant from a trailer and now Franklin Barbecue’s brisket is nationally known as one of the best. From humble beginnings, Franklin has published his own New York Times best-selling cookbook and an in-depth barbecue teaching session on the Masterclass website. If you want the best Texas BBQ has to offer, you’ll want to stop by Franklins.
“Keep Austin Weird” was a slogan adopted by the Austin Independent Business Bureau in 2000 to promote small businesses in the city, and has since become one of the state capital’s most recognizable sayings. Austin has long been known as a city that values the arts, and this is on full display in the city’s many buildings and walls. Austin’s creative spirit is alive and well, and there’s no better way to see it than by visiting the city’s many murals. AustinTexas.org Created a guide so you can see all the best creations.
