All About Weird, Wild Austin
Moving to Austin? Texas’ capital is admittedly weird. It’s also the hottest relocation destination in Texas with high demand for furnished housing. A pleasant climate and a great live music scene and lots of entertainment options, coupled with a strong economy, have created a boom. The University of Texas and the scene on Sixth Street has “hooked” more than 50,000 thousand students to this college town. Yet the city has preserved
The University of Texas and the scene on Sixth Street has “hooked” more than 50,000 thousand students to this college town. Yet the city has preserved it roots, and old mission style architecture can be seen side by side with skyscrapers and high-tech modern builds. Hot, humid summer temps range from the 70’s to the high 90’s; but the winters are mild and inviting.
There is an artistic ambiance that is paired with a burgeoning technology and science scene. Founded in 1984, Dell Computer in nearby Round Rock was a harbinger of things to come, as the city has become a key destination for high-tech companies like Cognitive Scale, Ihiji, Golden Frog, Trendkite, Own Local, ActiveProspect, and many more.
Austin has grown 72% since 1990, the fastest growth anywhere outside of Las Vegas. The influx of residents has led to an increase in the supply of high quality housing; CorporateHousingByOwner includes some great options in furnished apartments. And while the town is growing fast, the cost of living is relatively low compared to other high tech hotbeds, and traffic isn’t yet at the same level either, and the apartments in Austin tend to match the affluence and tasteful style of its residents.
Fun and Entertainment in Austin
Austin is loaded with live music, led by the annual Austin City Limits festival and specializing in Texas country, bluegrass, and rock. Stevie Ray Vaughn got his start here, and Willie Nelson and Janis Joplin hail from here, too. South Congress and Sixth Street are home to dozens of amazing restaurants, bars, and concert halls. The Moody Theater, The Zach Theater, and the Continental Club are examples of the dozens of top quality concert venues. Historical sites are plentiful and popular too. The State Capital, The Driskill Hotel, O. Henry Home and Museum, The Old Bakery and Emporium, Bremond Block and more highlight places to explore the history of the Lone Star state and its capital. River rafting, tubing, and small town ambiance beckon from the Hill Country; but outdoor fun can be had even closer at Zilker Park and the Zilker Botanical Garden, the Ladybird Hike-and-Bike Trail, Graffiti Park at Castle Hills, Mount Bonnell, and Mayfield Park Cottage. Lake Travis northwest of the city is a popular spot for water sports.
