If you travel SSW from the Texas state capital, what is the first major city you will arrive?
Austin is the capital of Texas. The University of Texas is there. Take I-35 South South West to San Antonio about 80 Miles.
If you start from the wrong city you'll not get the right answer. This question is really to see if you know the capital of Texas.
San Marcos is between Austin and San Antonio, but most people have never heard of it.
