Austin is the capital of Texas and one of the most exciting cities in the United States. It is small enough to be comfortable, but big enough to offer everything a bigger city does: museums, excellent restaurants, nightlife, movies, festivals of all kinds, a variety of outdoor activities, and several world-class universities. The sun always seems to be out in Austin! We average over 300 days of sunshine a year. The summers are hot, but our winters are mild.
