It isn't every day that you get to be a part of a city growing UP! Austin has grown more than any other city I have lived in and yet some how it keeps its small town vibe. You can live in Austin and attend many of the cool events and promotions. If you haven't heard about SXSW you must be living under a rock!
Austin has had a population explosion and with that comes a lot of new businesses and economic growth. Austin isn't the small city we all grew to love but it is actually bursting at the seems. In fact if you get stuck in rush hour traffic you won't believe it. The city has grown so fast that it hasn't been able to keep up so the two main arteries into the city are clogged with traffic.
A lot of people don't like the higher prices of living in Austin and they have also branched out into the surrounding cities. In fact if you drive along I-35 you will soon realize it is just one big blur of city and you are never really sure of when Austin ends and the next city begins.
Austin Texas is all grown up and some how holding onto its small town vibe. There are still many perks living here and enjoying the city. The city is beautiful and if you like the great outdoors this place is for you!
If you are looking to start a new business this is the place for you and your company. Even the smaller cities surrounding Austin have tax incentives that most companies can not pass up.
If you have been to Austin in a while you need to visit and notice how they still keep things weird but just a bit more crowded.
