Texas State Capitol
The slogan states that "everything is bigger in Texas," and if you look at our Capitol, the phrase rings true. Standing a stately 309 feet and modeled after the nation's Capitol in Washington D.C., this is the nation's tallest. Designed by architect Elijah E. Myers and constructed of red granite, the Capitol took more than seven years to complete. It was finished in 1888, at a total cost of more than three million dollars, an extravagant price even by today's standards. The perfectly landscaped grounds reflect the languid pace of life under the Texas sun, inviting you for a quiet stroll or a lazy day under a tree. Tours: Daily except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Day. Allow 30-45 minutes for the tour.

My friends and I walk around the inside all the way to the top floor wow when you look down you get a little dizzy bcuase of the structure. It is great place to see..
It was amazing ! The biggest state capital and only 2nd to the US national capital ! The main attraction in the city , most definately. You can go inside and walk around. It has portaits of all the governors of Texas . Inside you will find 4 levels . It is huge !
This is the most beautiful building in Texas, if you ask me. We went on a Sunday morning and there were no crowds, which was perfect. We took tons of photos and enjoyed the friendly security guard. Definitely a must-see.
Having worked there for 6 years and now living in DC, I love the fact that the TX capitol is soooo accessible to the public. You walk in, you walk around, you go watch hearings, you walk onto the floor of the House and senate and into the galleries, all without being stopped and told, "you can't go there." Try doing that in the US Capitol. You can't! Its a beautiful building and Texans should be proud that their legislature is truly theirs, and not some inaccessible, secret place.
