Everything is bigger in Texas, especially when it comes to Austin. The Texas state capital is 2nd largest state capital in the U.S., the 3rd fastest growing large city from 2000-2006, the 4th most populous city in Texas, and the 11th most populous city in the U.S. Besides being home to the state government, Austin has become a cultural and business center in the Lone Star State, seeing an influx of younger and more artistic populations to support the city slogan “Live Music Capital of the World.”
Austin is at the forefront of Texas in terms of creating it’s own vibe and unique culture. Music and art are becoming as much a part of Austin as economic growth, earning its nickname “Silicon Hills” by becoming a hot spot for big tech companies. Businesses from all around the U.S. are relocating to Texas because of the business-friendly policies, and Austin is taking some of them in like an adoptive parent. The Texas capital is also home to many Fortune 500 company offices, including Apple, Inc., eBay, IBM, Google, Intel, 3M, Whole Foods Market, Texas Instruments, and Dell in Round Rock, an adjacent suburb.
Other than ranking high on lists for top places to have a business on publications like Forbes and the Wall Street Journal, Austin’s artistic side has been emerging for many years now. The unofficial slogan “Keep Austin Weird” has taken hold among many of Austin’s residents, most of whom relish in a cultural identity all of it’s own from the rest of Texas. The city has developed quite a lively downtown area full of shops, restaurants, and nightspots to keep the city lively day and night.
Austin also offers a wide array of housing at affordable rates, ranging from traditional houses in the suburbs to apartments and condos in the heart of the city like the newer 360 Condominiums building. The city has also become a green beacon in Texas by leading the way in terms of environmental-friendly practices such as green energy and city rebates for making one’s home more energy efficient. There are also many parks, bicycle paths, and river activities for active residents as well as families.
If you’re looking for a big city feel that leads in business, culture, technology, and forward thinking with something for everyone, Austin just may be your destination!
