why we went: It was free. I read good reviews about it. And it’s PINK!
when we went: On a Monday morning in January.
what we found: Tours begin every half hour. Metered street parking. There was a free parking garage somewhere nearby, but the signs were confusing. I was frustrated by the time we parked. Just go directly to the capitol building, not the buildings next to it.
how long we were there: The tour was about 45 minutes and very good.
what it cost: Free
what we thought: The tour guide was good, I learned a lot. Texans like stars and making sure everyone knows they’re from Texas.
