Seeing the Capital

Today we had lunch at Z’ Tejas Grill. We then went to see the Texas Capitol building built in 1888 and has been restored. It was incredible to see and walk through.

The House Chamber

The Senate Chamber

There was the word Texas and that star all over the place. Even on the Chandelier.

A view of downtown Austin from the Capital window.

Here is a building with a unique top. It is the Frost Bank Tower.

To preserve the grounds around the capital, the new offices are underground.
We then went to the Texas State History Museum. 3 floors of Texas history. After all that I need a shower to wash off all this Texas off of me.
We stopped by the University of Austin to see The Tower

On the way back to the hotel I we stopped to see Town Lake. What an incredible view.
For dinner we ate at Uchi, a really good Japanese Restaurant.
