Ranked as the #1 place to live in the country by U.S. News, Austin is a booming city that's experienced massive changes in the last 20 years. Its warm weather, reasonable apartment pricing, and robust job market will always make it attractive for newcomers. While it's viewed as trendier than other Texas cities like Houston and Dallas, you can still find an authentic southern experience in the place nicknamed "the Live Music Capital of the World".
