Austin... a way of life.
Our hip reputation is rooted in the country music- hippie mash up of the 1970's. Austin's famous culture of tolerance made space for a new sound that couldn't come out of Nashville. Outlaw Country swept the nation. This sound mixed with rock and folk artists and Austin began its march toward the hippest town around.
Music and tolerance have been Austin's legacy for decades. Nowadays things are a little different of course. We are no longer a town but a city. High rise condos and must-try restaurants fill downtown.
Combine our easy-going way plus music, food & festivals to our wide range of housing and fantastic jobs scene and
Austin tops many lists of best places to live in the country.
