Dutch colonists brought bowling to the United States in the 17th century.At the time, it was known as "nine pins" because of the number of pins used. In 1841, Connecticut banned the game as it was associated with drinking and gambling. Other states followed, so an extra pin was added and the game was renamed bowling. Today, bowling is the number one participation sport in the country, and it's a fun way to spend an evening in Austin. Bowling alleys near Sur512 Apartments include:
