Austin is the state capital of Texas and home to the all-encompassing South by Southwest music festival that takes place each Spring. Sometimes known as The Live Music Capital of the World, Austin's buzzing music scene is centred on the clubs of 6th Street. Austinites are proud of their reputation of being a little out of the ordinary (the city's unofficial motto is "Keep Austin Weird"!) and a visit to Austin is never likely to be boring.
One of the fastest-growing and most beautiful cities in the US, the area also boasts some magnificent natural phenomena, including mountains, the Colorado River, the beautiful Highland Lakes and the National Wildflower Research Centre. Its thriving urban centre keeps visitors busy with a wide selection of restaurants, shopping, cafes and the University of Texas.
