2018 Diamond - Voted #2

Texas Capitol

The Texas State Capitol is one destination of history that everyone is going to love. Located in downtown Austin, Texas, this Citywide Spotlight featured destination houses some of the best  artwork you’ve might ever see. A $75 million underground extension was completed in 1993. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and recognized as a National Historic Landmark in 1986. The Texas State Capitol is more than 300 ft. tall making it the sixth-tallest state capitol and one of several that are higher than the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Also, be prepared to walk up some stairs. The rotunda is something to marvel at unless you’re afraid of heights.
