Austin No. 1!
Austin continues to bring in the awards and accolades with the U.S. News & World Report unveiling of the 2017 Best Places to Live in the United States. The report reads: "The new list ranks the country's 100 largest metropolitan areas based on affordability, job prospects, and quality of life. Austin, Texas, took the No. 1 spot."
Despite the varying reports of the last few years that anywhere from 50 to 157 people move to Austin each day, our new residents seem to keep on coming! Though all of us locals complain about the increasing traffic, it seems that very few of us are bothered enough to leave all we love about Austin. Whether you are attracted by the "Live Music Capital of the World," an abundance of fun eateries and farm-to-table restaurants, the close proximity of the Hill Country and its natural beauty, or you just love a wonderful place to call "home," Austin has something for everyone. There's not much hope for keeping it a secret!
