In addition, Austin is one of the nation’s leading energy producers and enforces a tough recycling program in an effort to keep the city clean and green. But there’s more things to do in Austin than visit wide open spaces. Texas’ capital city is one of the fastest growing cities in America and is rich in history.
Originally a buffalo hunting ground, Austin today is home to many prominent government officials and state historical monuments. Hop a cheap flight to Austin and take a walk back in time at the Texas State Cemetery, where the rich and colourful pasts of Texas’ politicians come to life.
