University of Texas Tower (The)
Standing 27 stories high, the University of Texas Tower (the main administrative building) is a fixture in the Austin skyline. Standing very close to the height of the Capitol, the observation deck provides a beautiful view of the city. A testament to school spirit, the tower shines in burnt orange, and the bells peal to hail the University sports teams' victories. This stunning architectural beauty is a must-see when visiting the campus.
Besides...it's free. Not to mention the view is absolutely beautiful...you can see Austin from an aerial view & it's awesome. I'd recommend it anyday. When you get done with the tower, check out Guadalupe St. (aka. the drag) for some cool shopping.
From the deck you get uninhibited views of all of Austin. It is a powerful building and good symbol of one of the greatest universities in America. When they light it and use various combinations of orange and white, the community knows what UT is doing and accomplishing. It is beautiful when a #1 is placed on each side and it glows all orange from top to bottom. The clocks are always correctly timed, the carillon bells play good music around lunchtime, and it is easy to know the time and your location from the tower's proximity to you.
Really cool to be on the UT Tower as the sun sets and the city fades into darkness with a million twinkling lights scattered across the horizon. It was so romantic, one fella proposed right then to his girl and she said... YES!
