You ain’t no Texan until you salute the Lone Star’s Capitol building. Erected in 1888 in Downtown Austin, the 308ft-tall structure stands even higher than even the United States Capitol in DC, proving everything really is bigger in Texas. Throughout the aesthetically and historically significant architectural wonder, you’ll find 392 rooms, 18 vaults, 924 windows, and 404 doors. But more importantly, you’ll find a rotunda, which basically acts as an echo chamber where you can make your 13-year-old self proud by whispering a string of dirty words.
Fort Worth is dubbed “Cowtown” and “where the West begins” for good reason. Just take a stroll along the famous stockyards, a former livestock market from 1866, and you’ll see why. While you take that stroll, do so with an open container, because it’s allowed there, so it’d be sinful not to take advantage, right?
