Completed in 1937, the 307-foot tall tower on the University of Texas campus is one of the most distinguishing landmarks in Texas.
The observation deck on top offers amazing views of Austin and the university. Tours are available only through the Texas Union Information Center which can be found online here or be reached by phone at (512) 475-6633, or toll free at 1-877-475-6633 for calls from outside the Austin area.
When the famous UT Longhorns win sports games, the tower is orange!
Tickets only cost $5 and last around an hour. But photos and memories of it will last a lifetime!
