Of course, it could only happen in Texas! That is why everything is bigger and better in Texas. In just a short three-hour care ride you can see 7 of our state's biggest landmarks.  I didn't say a three-hour car ride from here, pay close attention, once you get to Austin, it will take you three hours from there. For you new comers to the Permian Basin, Austin is about five hours from here. Our three hour tour will begin in Austin and take us all the number one tourist attraction in Texas. Let's begin.

First stop, the Capitol of Texas, located at 1100 Congress Ave, Austin, TX. The Texas Capitol was built in 1885 and it stands taller than the US Capitol Building.
