Austin Overview

Traveling to Texas for some outdoor adventure? Book a flight to Austin and enjoy the great outdoors in one of the nation’s greenest cities. Austin was originally called “Waterloo” because of its excessive creeks and water areas throughout the state. Today, travellers holidaying in Austin have the chance to explore nature preserves, rivers, lakes, eco-friendly parks and many other things around the city. In addition, Austin is one of the nation’s leading energy producers and enforces a tough recycling program in an effort to keep the city clean and green. But there are more things to do in Austin than visit wide open spaces. Texas’ capital city is one of the fastest growing cities in America and is rich in history.

Originally a buffalo hunting ground, Austin today is home to many prominent government officials and state historical monuments. Take a flight to Austin to walk back in time, for example, at the Texas State Cemetery where the rich and colourful pasts of Texas’ politicians come to life. Feel like a millionaire while you wander through Bremond Block, an area flanked with 19th century mansions and only blocks away from the many Austin landmarks that define the city. If bicycling through nature parks isn’t quite your speed, then how about touring one of the nation’s leading universities – The University of Texas. Thinking of furthering your education? Famous Longhorns include Lady Bird Johnson, Janis Joplin and Walter Cronkite.
