 Capital City of the Lone Star State

They say “everything is bigger in Texas”, and when it comes to State capitals, Austin is among the largest and fastest growing cities.  Acting as the hub of a population roughly 2.25 million, Austin is also the seat of the Lone Star State’s officials.  The city was named after the “Father of Texas”, Stephen F. Austin, and it was chosen to be the State capital over Houston in the late 1800’s (but there’s no hard feelings).  

Austin has been one of the highest ranked cities in the entire country when it comes to development, safety and opportunities: #1 on Forbes’ 2016 “Cities of the Future”, #1 in 2017 for “Next Biggest Boom Town”.  To put Austin’s economic prowess in perspective, some of the biggest companies in the country have chosen the Lone Star State Capital as their base of operations.  Such big names as eBay, PayPal, Google, IBM, Cisco, Whole Foods and (of course) Texas Instruments have headquarters in the Austin city limits.  

Austin has always been a unique slice of Americana, even by “loud, proud, Texan” standards.  Austin is renowned for its diversity, being home to a lively LGBTQ community, a wealthy blue-collar middle class, and a strong small-business community.  The motto “Keep Austin Wierd” has been popular since the early 2000’s, and it has become a mantra of the unique populace of Austin.

You Should “Live” Here:

Live Music City USA 

If you’re the home city/state of a musical legends like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Janis Joplin and Willie Nelson then you ought to be a destination for live entertainment and good tunes.  Austin has been dubbed “Live Music City, USA” for quite some time.  This is because of the city’s thriving musical community who has been responsible for generating world-class talent and putting on sold-out shows for decades.  Austin has more music venues per capita than any other city in the United States. The ultra-famous 6th Street and downtown host live artists, both solo acts and band performances, and it is places like these where people have flocked to see musicians both old and new.

South By Southwest (SXSW) Festival has got to be one of the biggest draws of the Austin-region.  Combining two of Austin’s renowned entertainment industries – film and music – this interactive festival showcases the creative talent of Austin’s artists for a five day event.

Austin City Has No Limits

If you’re travelling to Austin with your pets in tow, then you’re in luck – Austin’s community of pooches and paws-friendly businesses is as lively as the music scene.  Fido or Fluffy can take in the Texan heat and humidity by the pool at over 450 pet-friendly hotels, or chow down with you at nearly 500 pet-conscious restaurants.  Austin has a reputation for being a very walkable city, so naturally there’s a number of dog-walkers, dog-sitters, ‘pet day-spas’ and fun activities for your pets to enjoy on their own.

Do you like beer? Do you love you dog? Well there’s an event where proud dog owners can enjoy the raucous fun of “beerfest” along with their most loyal companion.  Pet-tober Fest is an October buds & barks event that draws many a pet owner to Austin.  Drinking from hundreds of beer varities while your dog has fun with other canines sounds too good to be true, but in Austin it’s just another annual event.

Most people assume that Texas is very desert-like, but its actually home to some pristine parks and nature preserves.  Because it is positioned between the dry deserts of the Southwest and the lush, humid regions of the Southeast, Austin has a unique blend of oases available for hikers, cyclists, or horseback riders.  Places like Barton Creek Greenbelt, Red Bud Isle and Lady Bird Lake are favorites in the Austin region.  

Some of the most popular outdoor attractions are swimming holes – because what sounds more “South USA” than cooling off in the ol’ watering hole?  Barton Springs Pool, found in the Barton Creek Greenbelt Park, is the largest natural swimming pool within city limits, in the entire country.  Texas is indeed a hot and humid place, but it doesn’t mean you or Fido have to sweat it out – just jump into one of Austin’s many waterbodies.

They don’t call Austin “City of the Violet Crown” for nothing.  The sunset sky in Austin is the place of a unique phenomenon: the Belt of Venus.  This ‘pink or purple glow’ around sunset or sunrise is a kind of twilight phenomenon that is only know to occur in Athens, Greece and Austin, Texas.  Not only does Austin show off a rosey, violet cascade of color at sunset, but the region is famous for its botanicals.  There’s no better place to witness the biodiversity of Austin than the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.  Full of flowers and foliage of all colors, this place is a favorite place for visitors.  Another great location to take in the beauty of Austin: Mount Bonnell.  At the peak of the hiking trails, epic vistas of the Colorado River and Lake Austin can take your breath away.
