Austin road trips for history buffs

Did you know? The Texas State Capitol building in Austin is taller than the nation's capitol in Washington D.C.? Of course, that's a no-brainer if you're a history buff. Consider these itineraries as your stopping point in a historical tour road trip in Austin, the heart of Texas.


This road trip is concentrated in the area of the state capitol itself and traffic may be heavy in peak hours. Just like in any major US city, it can be stressful to find a parking spot, so look out for buildings and lots offering paid parking areas.
