For trips up, down, and all around town, the Capital Metro buses service the entire city. Austin makes a point to accommodate cyclists, and with plenty of trails and routes established, biking is a popular choice as well.
<p>Located in the heart of Texas, the "live music capital of the world", is booming with festivals such as the Austin City Limits Music Festival, the South by Southwest Festival, the Pachanga Festival, and the Urban Music Fest. All of them are prime examples of the live music scene culture that makes Austin a fantastically fun place to live. But it's not just the big festivals; it's the amazing bars, clubs, and restaurants that put on live music every day of the week, all year long.</p>
<p>Austin isn't just accepting of all cultures and lifestyles; you'll have an open invitation for you to celebrate who you are and what makes you unique!

Wherever you choose to rent and relax, you're sure to feel welcome.</p>
Visit the Capital
<p>The Texas State Capital building is located just blocks from the University of Texas's Campus. Built in the late 1800's, the capital is a prime example of the Italian Renaissance Revival building style and is recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. The construction of the building took over a year and, symbolically enough, the cornerstone was laid on Texas Independence Day.</p>
