Austin is a great place to live and work. There's always something to do. In fact, 50 people move to this great city every day, and for good reason. It is laid back, outdoorsy, eclectic and has a vibrant music scene. In fact, it is the home of one of the most popular music festivals, South by Southwest. There is a great sports scene too with a local baseball team and University of Texas sports. The food in Austin is also amazing. This is not a strip mall and chain restaurant kind of place. There are tons of small, funky restaurants and breweries to enjoy.
