The city of Austin is the capital of Texas, United States. Situated on the Colorado River, it is the fourth largest city in the state and has a population of approximately 695,000 inhabitants.
The ancient city of Austin was initially inhabited by the nomadic Native American Tribes. The documented settlements in the city began in 1835. The establishment of the University of Texas in the late nineteenth century enabled it to evolve as a centre of education and commerce. It has now developed as a significant metropolis and is considered to be the ‘Live Music Capital of the World’ because of a huge population of popular musicians in the city.
The city is characterised by a humid subtropical climate, with hot, humid summers and mild, dry winters. November and December are the best months to visit the place.
