Austin is home to about one million people, but it's really a much bigger city. It's the capital of the state of Texas and is a cosmopolitan city that offers visitors a wide array of cultural and historical sites and attractions, as well as a full menu of great nightlife, first-class restaurants, shops, boutiques, and activities. Some of the best spots around town to get immersed in Austin culture and life are Downtown, the East district, Rainey Street, Red River for live music shows, Sixth Street, and South Congress.
Home to a rich history and culture, Austin is home to such places as the Blanton Museum and Harry Ramson Center, both of which display exhibits of American and world works of art. The diversity of the city's history and present can be witnessed at the Jones Center (a community arts center), the Mexic-Arte Museum, and the Long Center (a performing arts center). However, further creativity and some of Austin's eccentricity is showcased in places like the Bullock Museum, the Cathedral of Junk, and the Fusebox Festival.
