Title: A 3 day Austin family vacation - Lake Travis and Texas State Capitol
Preparation: Booked a hotel near the Lake Travis area and it's convenient to visit the beautiful mountain lake park and water areas.
General opinion: Lake Travis mountain area is a great place to visit.
Attractions and activities: Lake Travis mountain area: when we drove through the mountain area, my son and daughter told us that made them recalling our Hawaii trip. Texas State Capitol: learned some Texas history there. after this visit we learned why the capital city named Austin, why does Houston have the highway named Sam Houston. University of Texas at Austin: visited the Lyndon Johnson Presidential library.
Dining: In the Texas State Capitol visit, we had lunch within the building and it was very nice but I forgot the restaurant name.
Commute: Be aware of the speed limit when you drive in the Mountain area. When we drove there at 38 miles/hour, we got a citation ticket. At the moment we did not see the speed limit sign at all. Later the police told us it was 30 miles/hour.
