As soon as you start to head towards downtown on South Congress you can see the top of the (308 ft tall) Capitol building beautifully sticking out amongst the buildings and lights of Austin. It’s located in the Historic district off on Congress and 11th street and is surrounded by 22 acres. This version was built in 1888 and is a must see if you’re heading to Austin!
Here’s a video showing some of the floors to the top. That star you see on the ceiling is 8 ft across just to give you an idea of how big this place is!
