Tourist Attractions in Austin, TX

Austin is the fourth most populous city in Texas and the eleventh in the entire country. While it emerged as home to various technology corporations – thus garnering the nickname “Silicon Hills” – it later opted to promote itself as “The Live Music Capital of the World” because of the many musicians and live music venues in the city. A lot of tourists are drawn to this eccentric and diverse city (its unofficial motto is “Keep Austin Weird”) because of its desire to keep local businesses alive. Its music, film and theater scene is booming: live music venues abound, several film festivals are hosted every year and several live performance theater venues are being run all throughout the city. Surprisingly, another point of interest that continues to draw in at least 100,000 local and foreign tourists per year is the Mexican Free-tailed bats whose population in the Ann W.
