There are a lot reasons that residents living in ATX love it here! Year round recreation, water fun, lush preserves for hiking, biking and jogging, unique downtown entertainment and acclaimed schools are just a few of the perks to Austin Texas lifestyles. Here are a few of our favorite highlights to living in Austin:

Country Flair-Tech Everywhere

There’s an annual Rodeo, the two-step honky-tonks and horses 20 minutes from downtown. And you can locate them all on your smart phone thanks to the tech companies that are already in town, or planning on moving here. They come for the great lifestyle, business-friendly environment & access to a highly-educated workforce & stay because there’s plenty to do when work is over.

Healthy Food Store – Live Music Galore

If it’s healthy, it’s here. If it’s green it’s here. If it’s good, ditto. Whole Foods Flagship store, Central Market Stores, Sprouts, farmers markets and Trader Joes on the way. And, yes, it’s a bit country… and a lot of rock and roll. Throw in blues, jazz, pop, metal, techno pop or any other type of music and it’s here in the Live Music Capital of the World. You can even hear great live music at the supermarket on weekends. No joke.

Folks Are Polite – Party All Night

Southern hospitality and good-old-fashioned manners still matter around here. So, when you go out on 6th Street and party with the under 30 set, or head south two blocks to 4th. Street where the adults let down their remaining hair and dance with folks their own age, you’ll find a good party. And great music, food, company and nice, down-home southern hospitality to boot.

Bang For Your Buck – Eat From A Truck

Compared to most major Metropolitan Cities, what you get for your money here is quite amazing. The cost of living is still reasonable. Just ask the people who couldn’t wait to get here. You might find them dining at one of the hundreds of exotic food trucks in town. Everything from Burgers, Thai, and gourmet cupcakes. So Austin. So dang good.
