Welcome to Greater Austin!

The area surrounding Austin is home to a blend of high-tech industry and leisure opportunities that are unrivaled in Texas. The city of Austin is the capital of Texas and is situated on the Colorado River, just one of the bodies of water in the area that offer recreational parks and lush green spaces at their edges. Created when the Colorado River was dammed, the Highland Lakes region is a haven for water sports enthusiasts as well as a spot for family getaways. For those who appreciate local cuisine, the nearby town of Lockhart is known as the Barbecue Capital of Texas, no small compliment from the state where everything is celebrated in a big way. Golf is well represented in the Austin area as well, with several courses to challenge golfers of all skill levels.
