We’ve all heard people try to describe Austin, but how can you truly capture the essence of such a vibrant community? There aren’t words that can encapsulate the feelings, sights, and overall atmosphere the city has. With that in mind, we thought we’d talk about some of the things that we think everyone should know about Austin. The city calls to people like a siren, and they’re moving to the area in droves. It’s not hard to see why people are gathering in “The Live Music Capital of the World.”
Residents take the moniker seriously, and you can catch a live show almost every day of the week. Besides having some of the largest names on the charts touring the city, you’ll see some smaller artists before they make it big, and you can even get in on the action for some of the largest music festivals, including SXSW and Austin City Limits.
Austin may be a hub for those in the business and tech world, but it’s also a college town. The University of Texas at Austin is a major attraction for many, and you’ll see people flocking to the stadiums come the fall for some good old fashioned Texas football. There may not be any professional teams that play in Austin, but that doesn’t keep residents from gathering at their favorite sports bars and watering holes to cheer on their teams. The camaraderie found in the community is remarkable and just another way Austinites continue to “keep Austin weird.”
Almost everywhere you turn, you’ll see dogs enjoying everything Austin has to offer just as much as their owners are. We’re not kidding when we say that Austin may be the dog friendliest city you’ll ever visit. Restaurants and bars often have outdoor patios and will welcome two-legged and four-legged patrons. You’ll even see that some stores leave out water bowls for all the thirsty pooches during summer shopping trips.
The nightlife, the food, and the activities keep Austinites on their toes, and there’s always something new springing up in the area. The art, culture, and eclectic atmosphere are something that you just have to experience for yourself.
