Have you ever noticed that many of the Capitals in the U.S. aren't really very alluring? What I mean is, there are just so many other cities with so much more appeal. Why go to Albany when you can go to N.Y.C? Why Sacramento when there is San Fran?

Personally I think Austin is an exception. It is clean, quiet, and pretty but can still get rowdy when it wants to (apparently there were riots on 6th street a week before we arrived).

You may not end up spending a full week here but it's a pretty good jumping off point to see a whole lot of Texas. Watch out for that panhandle though, it can get a little scary.
