Texas State Capital
Everything is bigger in Texas
Texas is a really big place!
Texas’ State Capital building is made of Llano granite, cleverly named because it is from Llano, Texas.
This statue tells the story of Tejanos during the early history of the state.
The Goddess of Liberty stands on the tippy-top.
Texas is the Lone Star State – and stars are everywhere!
and the floor!
The state seal, too! How many can you find?
The Texas State Capitol Building is in Austin, the city who loves to be weird!
In fact…Austin’s official slogan is:
And weird, it is! You’ll find more tattoos,
unusual hair colors,
and dogs in stores than any place else!
Austin’s official motto is: (Yes, you can have an official slogan AND an official motto! ) Live Music Capital of the World!
Visit Sixth street for late night fun!
Stay tuned for a kid friendly visitor’s guide to the capital of the Lone Star State! It will include history and fun things not to be missed like the Big Top candy store….
